Happy Mother's Day (UK) to all the Mums, mother figures and potential mothers out there. They have the hardest and the most blessed calling in the whole world.

As I am still in domestic goddess mode from last week, I decided in celebration of British spring (yes oh we have sunshine and flowers praise God) to do a full English Roast with roast chicken, potatoes and veg and of course gravy, with carrot cake and custard for dessert. Then my Mum says;

"Oh Mother's Day, when's that? Oh oh, I doing a double shift, won't be home all day."


This is why it's not good to get too exicted about things. I had missed the last two Mother's Day because I had been in Nigeria for Youth Service so I was hyped up..... Oh well.

I did the carrot cake anyway so she could take it to work for the other nurses that were working and I made another one for my friend's birthday. Now yesterday when I told my Dad I'm going to buy flour and stuff he had raised the whole fat girls shouldn't eat cake. I sweetly told him that both cakes were not for the this house and had external destinations.

Imagine my horror when we came back from church this morning and my Dad said:

"Stay away from sugar, the cake I ate last night (3am!) should not be in the house."


He had cut out a big chunk of someone's birthday cake. I had to use everything in my power not to flip and grouch. I had to point out that he has to work on listening to me when I speak and not tuning me out. I'M NOT HIS SPOUSE DAMN IT! I had even told him yesterday that there was a small cake with less fat and sugar I had made for him in the fridge. He bypassed that one and went for the big cake. Chai! I don't understand oh. When I spoke to him football, news and cowboy films were not showing, so where did it all go wrong?

I am now going to scrap together ingredients for another cake as the real owner is coming today to collect it. Someone give me a drink!

PS Jade Goody RIP. My dear you used what you had to the best of your abilities. May angels watch over your sons.

    Breathe dear, just breathe. Parents can be very annoying sometimes, but hey, they are yours and you are theirs. Sounds exactly like what my dad would do though, eat the cake then warn you about sugar...after eating a huge chunk!

    Enjoy ur spring,ihope it gets sunnier by the time i'm ready to join you guys.

    hehehe! You just got to love them - fathers!
    How did you think he'd actually bypass the delicious cake and go for the not-so-delicious one you kept for him?

    How else would he get to repeat the fact that "fat girls shouldn't eat cake" and that you should stay away from sugar? lol!

    Very funny.
