CM has completely caught the ‘Bake Off’ buzz, and we’ve had a tough couple of weeks as we’ve reconciled that the after-school bakery class clashes with one of her squash lessons. We have however found a compromise and now Saturday afternoons are committed to our own bake-off.
The first was a hurried affair as, to be honest, Saturday afternoons aren’t great, I spend Saturday mornings walking back and forth with children as they swap classes, all I want to do in the afternoon is catch up on chores and drink coffee, but a 6-year-old is not to be swayed and this was a quick and easy choice, with the added boost of seeing CM’s reaction as the oven transformed them.
