Bytes and Bites

Our coffee morning raised £142 which was brilliant for Macmillan and everyone enjoyed the cakes. This week has been a difficult one as a virus has paralysed the school computers for two days, slowly things are returning to normal but at the moment the virus is still causing problems in the background. Emily has made a delicious ginger cake in Food Tech lessons this week, unfortunately some mixture dripped on to her cake from one on the shelf above. It made a funny mark across the top but the cake is delicious - dark, sticky and gingery but not too fierce and its all gone! Em did her usual trick of using vitalite instead of butter and lacto-free milk, so it was safe for her to eat.
Cross stitching Mary Wigham this week has been slow but I have made some progress. I may have to stop shortly as I need to start work on another sampler for a friend who is leaving school at the beginning of November. I hope you have a good week. Jane

Hello Jane! I'm back from my 'little rest' and so glad to see the progress you've made on the cross stitch.

The Morning Coffee fund raiser sounds like a great idea.

Have a good week!

Mmmm. Ginger cake. My favorite. Love your progress on the cross stitch. I used to cross stitch years ago, but I don't even think I remember how to do it.

I think it's so cool she can just whip up recipes like that. It's such a talent.

Love the stitching!

Lovely ginger cake. I made a similar cake at school, and still have the recipe. I hope you are catching up with the computer work. x
