Like any hurricane, there is always a calm before the storm. This hurricane definitely had the ‘calm’ before a major disaster came along.
I left the flat with Lauren to go enjoy a sunny afternoon in the park with friends. It was so much fun – we talked while the kids played football and enjoyed the playground. I also left the kitchen in an immaculate condition…
This wasn’t the case AT ALL when I got home. Nope, the hurricane lasted Saturday and Sunday with some lasting damage – 2 glasses were broken! The hurricane did have a root cause – her friend’s birthday outing to the park on Sunday afternoon.
This was the start and first view on Saturday evening. It was also my view when first arriving home.
Then, the cakes came out of the oven, kitchen was cleaned up for the night and all was quiet (also known as the eye of the hurricane)…
But, Sunday morning was spent making fondant and AGAIN a major mess!
Meanwhile, I enjoyed watching ‘Keeping Up Appearances’ with Hyacinth! Yes, this is my absolute favorite tv show and helped to majorly calm my nerves. She is just so funny and this episode was the best! Hyacinth gets a yacht to go around the river, but instead falls in to get SUPER wet. Poor Hyacinth!
Eventually, the cake got done and all of her friends thought it was so cool. Let’s hope hurricane season is almost over – I can’t take another one for a while! 🙂
