Since I have been without employment we see and communicate less simply because of financial constraints.
When last I saw her, I was so ill and she took me away to resort to recuperate - just to show you how special she is to me. Make no mistakes we have our differences but our friendship supersedes any obstacle we have
So today was a very special moment and I decided to bake a cake. She is always begging me to bake something for her - I guess my reputation precedes me - so I made a marble sponge cake for the occasion.
Oh NO!!! what a disaster! The cake was a flop, yes Madame Perfectionist made a boo boo! Too much sugar makes for one sticky flat cake. The marbling was fantastic, the aroma from the kitchen mouthwatering but alas the cake was not edible at all!! She smiled, and in her fantastic positive way said that she would put custard over and have it as pudding - it was still special to her that I took the time to make it!
Well there are 2 lessons here.
One - Too much of anything spoils the balance and the cake will flop - so make sure you lead a well balanced life in all ways.
Two - If you have a flopped cake, use what you have to deal with the mistake and make the best of the situation. Not all is lost, we all make mistakes!
To Ravi - Love you my darling friend!!!
