    One shirt of OHs I did not particularly like and he carelessly left it on the dining room table
    He does realise there is a rule that anything left on the dining room table is destined for boxing and/or bagging for the next charity shop run - he does not realise this rule also applies to him and any belongs he leaves on the table.

    so after a week of the shirt being strewn on the dining room table I saw and it did indeed get put into a charity bag. Unfortunately on the afternoon we were doing the charity shop run OH spotted it between the back door and the car and it was removed from the charity bag where it had taken up residence

    He said "my favourite shirt!" - obviously not

    Then he pinned it on the washing line and there it remained in wind, rain, hail and snow for about 6 months - I was waiting to see how long it was before he re claimed his favourite shirt
    Eventually at the start of Feb when we were going up to York for the weekend he finally rescued it from the washing line

    Fantastic albeit scary cake PD

    It my dds birthday coming up and she wanted a cake with a unicorn on and I wasn't confident I would be able to do it as although I can make cakes I'm not artistic or creative and I thought well it won't cost too much... Well an 8 inch cake with marble icing and a fondant unicorn on top...anyone want to guess how much
