Paleology, speleology and steampunk-my birthday jaunt was an absolute delight on all levels. We drove down to South Wales straight after work on Friday, through the last of the [very] heavy rain.

Anyway, all I meant was, having had a lovely bacony breakfast, cooked by ma belle femme, we trotted off to the shops and got the required coconut, plus a whole heap of goodies from our local cake decorating emporium… My niece has asked me to make her daughter’s birthday … Continue reading Bacon, bake off
