Christmas cake early!
Today my sister popped round for a coffee. Seven hours later (!) she left and this was in the oven. It’s my annual Christmas cake for Dad but I got slightly distracted whilst it was baking and I may have over-baked it slightly. I’m hoping it can be saved by an alcoholic soaking which will begin tomorrow. I just wish I had taken this out of the oven before working on the lecture I’m delivering the week after next. It was only in slightly longer than planned, only by 10-15 mins but this could make all the difference as to whether it is edible or not. I’m not sure it should be that dark!
Only time will tell...
This was all done whilst I am loaded with cold. I was awake a few times during the night due to sneezing and coughing, and I had to get more medicine at 5.30 this morning. I’m glad my sister came round as she could help out with cake making and also take over when I needed to blow my nose and wash my hands out of the room (which I did a lot!!!). I have not stopped sneezing since yesterday and my nose keeps going between rather blocked, stuffy, running like a tap and fuzzy all in one.
Oh I have a cold, something I did not want when I have a lecture to run through tomorrow. Let’s hope this cold does not take hold of my throat too!!!
I’m officially lying on the sofa for the rest of the evening with my box of tissues and Vicks *sigh* :-(
