I feel I've neglected my blog lately, but then something has to give I suppose in this game of spinning the plates to maximise each day.
I've been tinkering into the Instagram world, both with mine and Muffy's account (yes she has one) and I have to confess, I'm a little put out because she now has over twice my followers!
But if it takes photo's of me in the bath or having to rub disgusting things on my skin... well you can forget it! I'll let her reign supreme, although she'll never stop rubbing my nose in it.
Also, I'm trying to spend more time painting and there's always to garden calling me.
Sometimes, I get daunted with so much that I want to post that it then seems too much of a task or would take too long, so I put it off.
What you might call a world class procrastinator.
Does that happen to you? If so, how do you overcome it?
I'm thinking if I just write brief posts then that might be better
(HA! Be brief... Me...that's a laugh in itself)
So let's start...
How about a cake?
I know I haven't shown any baking for quite some time.
Mainly, because I've just been baking what you might call my screensaver.
I have to say this IS the easiest cake to bake and stays moist for days.
A great treat to produce if you have unexpected guests.
We've been enjoying the new season of The Great British Bake Off - season 6.
It's finally inspired me to get baking once again... but nothing fancy or time-consuming just yet.
My son's been requesting his favourite banana loaf for some time, so what can you do when he passes his exams but.... 'BAKE'
(by the way that was in Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc's voice - the hosts of the show)
It's a great way to use up any bananas that may be getting too ripe.
I also included some walnuts inside and pine nuts on the top to decorate.
Can you smell that? Mmm... good eh?
I'm not sure if it should have a crack showing... (that's a little joke to viewers in the UK)
but there it is anyway, so thankfully it's not going up before Mary Berry or Paul Hollywood.
I'm off to pop the kettle on and to do my own taste test.
I'm linking up with T stands for tea time today.
Have a wonderful Tuesday and I hope to see you soon.
Possibly a few pounds/kilo's heavier!
