Today is the first day of my week off. It has been a lovely one.
Domesticity, laundry, bakery, filmery!
I got some laundry on first thing and changed the bedding. There’s nothing like fresh sheets.
I, once again, had some over-ripe bananas and you know what that means! Cake. Tasty cake. Mmm, cake. I tried to find a recipe that I wanted to try but couldn’t, so I decided to let Google image search be my friend. I found a photo of a cake that looked delicious (thank goodness computer screens are lickable is all I can say) and decided to try the recipe. This is the recipe I tried: http://happyhomebaking.blogspot.co.uk/2010/07/afternoon-tea.html
Banana and walnut cake. It is scrumptious. I’m not sure why my cake is so much darker on top – maybe I need to have it lower in the oven or something. (Any baker aficionados have any thoughts on this?) I said it on Facebook and I will say it again here: I still maintain that the best thing about being a (currently) childless adult is that you get the spoon and bowl all to yourself after baking.
I was worried that there was too much cake mix but I needn’t have.
Then, of course, the all important taste test. Cue one cup of coffee and a big slice of cake.
The cake is light, moist and tasty. Fab recipe, easy to follow. Highly recommended!
This afternoon, I watched ‘Psycho’ for the first time. We started watching it last night but there was something else on so I went off and bought the DVD this afternoon. It is utterly spectacular. Awesomely creepy, atmospheric and incredible. It as instantly entered into joint first place of my favourite movies of all time – next to the 1922 film ‘Nosferatu.’
Tomorrow, I’m not sure what I will be up to. I might tackle those housework bits that seems to get forgotten – cleaning skirting boards, doors etc. May as well! Off to the cinema tomorrow evening to see ‘Ted.’ Should be fun!
