The Old Woman in a shoe bakes a cake and the family survives

How many items do you need to bake a cake?
(the spanner in the front came in very useful actually).

And how much washing up is created...

To produce this for Tech-boy's birthday:

And we went bowling with friends (thankfully Tech-boy wasn't thrashed by his sister):

and look what Tech-boy got for his birthday:

It works better on water:

And in the meantime small brave people test the lake water for temperature, while us not-so-brave adults look on:

And Tech-boy hoarding his other presents:

So, what did Tech-boy choose to do on his birthday...

...yep, you've guessed it, he wanted to have a screen day. ALL DAY on the Wii and his DS Lite.

Well, one can hardly refuse the wishes of a birthday boy.

That's a great idea for a birthday - obviously not the intrepid exertions - I mean playing on the computer all day. It's my birthday soon, which is actually top secret, and I now know what I want to do. Get rid of the entire family and switch on the flatscreen window to the world. Sorted!

Yeah...had to remortgaget the house to buy it (well, nearly). What a shame it's a junior one and I can't squeeze my bum into it...I'll just have to sit on the bank eating chocolate cake, knitting, and making approving noises as he disappears across the lake.
