Commute Ride Like Lightning / Witches’ Coven
OK, so the raw figures of this ride look pretty sluggish. But I was on Wilf, my Sturdy Commuting Bike, and it was windy (not blowing a hoolie, but enough to slow you down, and somehow ALWAYS in your face). As usual I’d faffed about in the office before heading off for an after-lunch meeting on the way to Sunderland. And the meeting went on longer than I’d expected, so I had to hurry back . . . as it was Daughter’s birthday!
She’d had her party at the weekend, so yesterday was more of a quite tea affair. The cake I’d made for the party was huge, so even after everyone had gone home with a slice, there was enough to keep back for more singing of ‘Happy Birthday’ and candle blowing.
Daughter’s party was a fancy dress one, with a witch theme. So I’d made an appropriate cake to go with this - a Witches’ Coven, with ten little marzipan witches dancing round a cauldron - one representing each of the party guests. I’m not entirely what the other parents thought of this (no sign of Father Karras at the door yet)!
