For T. We had it alfresco in her garden and my, we were lucky with the weather! Sunny and quite warm with very little breeze. I had thought about candles at one stage and then decided they wouldn't work because Edinburgh is nearly always breezy to a howling gale. However, they probably would have been OK. This was T's second lockdown birthday, let's hope I don't have another too (in August).
The cake was a hit I'm glad to say. It was a new recipe, courtesy of the Bake Off Box, which my brothers gave me a subscription of for Christmas. It was a really easy recipe and it produced a lovely moist chocolate cake, using vegetable oil rather than butter. It's one I will make again!
In the evening I watched another episode of Life on Mars on iPlayer. I saw it first time round in 2006, but one of the advantages of having a poor memory is that I don't remember any of the plot. I would thoroughly recommend it. It's nothing to do with space, instead it's about a detective played by John Simm who is involved in a car crash and wakes up back in 1973 when policing was fairly different.
