    Rose, sorry to hear that you were flooded out.

    Hopefully the insurance will sort everything and you will end up with a new kitchen free of charge!

    I can easily believe that. Did I ever post the horse cake I made? A local cake shop wanted to charge my neighbour between £135-£145. So I made it instead. It was all chocolate and cost about £15 to make in the end.

    Oh poor you tweets, you probably end up with all these colds because you have to keep visiting your mum, especially if she sneezes like that

    It's crazy what can be charged for a basic cake , do you still have a picture as it would be nice to see
