Fortunately no wildlife related things have happened to me today. Although I had to smile at a text message I had from my friend Jill last night. A few weeks ago, she was sitting in her lounge watching tv, looked up and saw a bat on her ceiling! I tried hard to be sympathetic, after all if it had happened to me you would have heard me screaming wherever you live in the world. But I just had this vision of Jill trying to get a bat out of her house singlehandedly and it did make me smile, just a little bit. So last night, she sent me a text to say that she was sitting down eating her dinner and saw that in the corner of the room was a frog! I would have paid good money to see her chasing a frog round her lounge, I'm not sure that it would have been easy to coax a frog out the door without actually touching it. Just one thought though, things often happen in 3s, I wonder what's next? he he he!!
Anyhow, three things I learnt today:
1. If my friend Julia gives me the recipe for her favourite chocolate fudge icing recipe, I will wake up with the single thought going round and round my brain - 'Must make cake, must make cake'
2. As soon as my son surfaces, he will insist on trying new recipe icing for his breakfast
3 oz Icing Sugar
1 oz cocoa powder
1 1/2 oz butter
2 tablespoons water
2 oz caster sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Sift icing sugar and cocoa together in bowl.
2 Put all other ingredients in another bowl and microwave until all is melted
3 Pour melted mixture over icing sugar/cocoa and stir quickly until mixed.
4 Try to refrain from putting finger into mixture to see how delicious it is
5 Give into temptation and lick almost empty bowl after covering cake
