Thanks, everyone - you lovely people!  big_hug  big_hug

 

Had planned to go out for a nice lunch, when I had a phone call from my bro, who is currently looking after Mother. An hour later, it was a bit too late .....

 

Not to worry, I have made some chocolate fairy cakes, and while they were baking I mixed up a strong tangerine jelly and in one very thin layer, let it set.

When cakes had cooled, I put a small piece of the tangerine jelly on top, and then covered with a rich chocolate. Tah - dah - my very own 'Jaffa' cakes!

 

Just about to have a cuppa with a cake .  i_am_hungry

Happy birthday Val, it sounds like you had a great time making Jaffa cakes. i_am_hungry

My Mum said that if I had been born a day earlier I would have been called Elizabeth after the Queen (and my godmother) and a day later I would have been Georgina as in St. George's day. Thank goodness I was born on the 22nd of April, I quite like the name Joanna.cheers

Joanna is a very nice name, but so too are Elizabeth and Georgina - they would all be very acceptable choices.

But some of the recent made up names that we are coming across now - we've had Taya, Kyah, Tegan, Pagan - all girls; and some of the boys - Talon, Keaton (sounds like someone enjoys old films ..), Xander - all sound a little bit 'made up'.

Oh well, perhaps I'm just being a grumpy ole git!   big_laugh   big_laugh
