|the corner tasted ok although it was super sweet. there's a face in there somewhere and it's just a little bit creepy. |

I haven't blogged for ages and I apologise. i'm sure you missed me. lol. well, Liz has returned home and all is well with her. we had a lot of fun when she was here and didn't shop too much. well, one or two days we did but I recovered quickly. she was packed to the hilt when she left but she didn't seem to buy that much stuff. apparently a lot of things are not available where she lives. we lunched with our friends A and S quite a bit and as A is a music teacher and has just taken up the uke, we jammed and had fun. S bought a uke and Liz was going to buy one for her and her husband when she returned. as you know, the uke is the happiest instrument. A is quite good and when we were there for lunch one day she brought out a very old accordion and said she hasn't played it for years. it was a very nice looking accordion and she proceeded to play it like a champ. obviously she hasn't forgotten how. it was great. she taught me a few tunes on the uke and I have to keep practicing them or i'll forget. my son, the musician :), is pleased that I've taken up the uke again. so Liz and I shopped, lunched and generally had a good time and those two weeks went so quickly. last night I went to a local chinese restaurant with some friends from work and had a lovely night. it was quite hot here yesterday but today it's super windy (I hate the wind) and very cool. I have some grocery shopping to do as I plan to bake a cake. I made one the other day which was a complete disaster. I will attach a photo just so that you can have a laugh. it's hideous. I hope the cake I bake today will be an astounding success. if it is, i'll take a photo. :) stay tuned :) ....
