I had a nice long weekend. I took Monday off which combined with the fact that I finish early on Fridays meant I got nearly four days off. I took the time off to take advantage of the fact that P's exams have finished. I've also taken Monday, Tuesday and Thursday off next week, and we will be spending a long weekend with P in Oxford.

It was a lot of fun, especially as we could just relax and not have to worry about anything like work or revision. With some help P has now built her first magic deck, my friend Nick came down set up my drum kit properly and gave me my first drum lesson, so I have my first groove to practise, I messed about briefly on creatures 3 trying to teach the inoffensive things to defend themselves (with varying degrees of success) and just generally had fun and relaxed.

And yesterday with P's help I made a chocolate fudge layer cake. It's made it once before several years ago and its as gorgeous as I remembered it to be. It’s so rich and sweet that you can only eat in small amounts and with ice cream. Its about 4 inches high by about 7 in diameter. With two chocolate sponges covered in a chocolate fudge frosting. There’s about a centimetre of fudge between the two sponge layers, and about 1.5 to 2cm of fudge over the sides and top. I think calling it a chocolate fudge layer cake is not quite accurate death by chocolate fudge might be a more appropriate name. The cake practically radiates an aura of absolute sweetness.

I’ll stick the recipe up behind lj cut tags:

In other news my Dad has know bought his new car an Audi A4 Quattro. I think he's pleased with the 3.0 litre engine. This means I'm a little close to getting the Fiesta again. Of course we need to resolve the unreliable starting issue first. If it wasn't for the fact that the Micras not really suitable for regular motorway driving I'd probably keep it a little longer.
