She didn't inherit ...

... the baking gene from me!

Yesterday was Mothering Sunday in the UK.  My daughter arrived with a lovely big box of chocs, and this cake:
It is gorgeous, thank you Mrs Nomad.

My son sent some roses and chocolates and a card which really made me laugh.  On the front it said:
          Dear Mum
          Sorry I can't be with you on Mothering Sunday, 
          but I've got no washing that needs doing and I'm OK for cash.

I think he was joking!
