Day 15 is all about taking a cue from our readers. I did a poll earlier on in the course and the majority of respondents chose that I should design and make hubby’s birthday cake. So I shall 😊
Hubby’s birthday is in just over 3 weeks. Sounds plenty of time? Nope! I have Maxi Mister’s homework to help him with (they have to create and make a new game), extra sessions at work on a Saturday, sewing to get done (majorly behind there), and homework marking done for my students. It is going to be a busy time again!
