well, here I am again

April 12, 2013

You’ll have gathered we were away for a few days, and in theory coming home meant it was easier to get on the internet, and to blog again and let you know what was going on, but somehow I hit a bit of a slump. Monday was mostly travelling, so that provided plenty of knitting time, which was nice. Tuesday was all about the mountain of washing that we had generated, but then we cheated and went for an extensive look around IKEA (which turned out curiously expensive for a trip which was only supposed to generate a couple of picture frames, but then isn’t that always the way at IKEA?) Wednesday and Thursday got sucked into a black hole of tidying from which I have only just emerged. Please remember these things are relative: the urge to tidy (usually entirely resistible) was generated by the fact that Super Girl currently has a friend visiting for a sleepover – you can see how bad things are if I thought they weren’t good enough for an adolescent visitor. To be honest, the house is still one which any normal person would consider horrendous, it’s just that it’s so much better than it was (at least in parts)!

Still, the reward for this effort is that the girls are now happy in the kitchen baking the cakes they will use tomorow to create a cake volcano for their geography homework. They are planning a red velvet molten core, with layers of chocolate cake and buttercream icing. Apparently there needs to be a secondary vent, and they will have to experiment with rocky road and chocolate covered popcorn to see what makes the best boulders. If you think it just sounds like an excuse for a massive chocolate fest, I think you’re probably right.

    Does part of the homework include testing to see whether the effects reach as far as the US…?

    I think we’ll be lucky if any of the results make it back home again to be honest! Especially as it will need to be cut open to demonstrate the core and layers of rock.
