    This week i`ve baked some twinks and also the delicious marmalade cake that someone posted, i`m not 100% sure that i remember who it was but Jolaaled your name springs to mind so thanks very much for posting the recipe :A

    Halfway through adding the ingredients i discovered that the jar of marmalade that i had was actually a jar of plum jam :D so i used that instead and it was lovely.


    I'm glad the cake turned out jam instead...sound really delish..must make a note to remind myself to try that in the summer when I make my jam! Did you still add spices too??

    Wish me luck - just about to go to Mr A for the first (and biggest, apart from the Pets at Home trip), shop of the month. Apart from fizzy drinks (on offer at Mr S), milk, bread and fresh veg, this should be me for the month. Famous last words......:p

  • Was meant to be cooking HM pizzas tonight, but didn't want everyone to catch the nasty stomch bug I had earlier in the week. So £4 spent in icel*nd on 2 pizzas and some chocolate bars for packed luches, and £10.57 in Mr T's on dishwasher tablets and other bits.

    Also spent £16.50 on dentist appointment and been told that I need to go back for a couple of fillings and one of them might end up being a crown - in which case it will set me back £198 :eek:. Not GC, but the money's going to have to come from somewhere
