While having dinner, my husband asked whether would
like to buy bread for tomorrow breakfast?
I said not necessary because I am intending to bake Marble Cake.
He asked me why I did not bake in the afternoon because
at least it won't be tiring for me.....since I went to
Big Bad Wolf Book Sales this morning with my son.
I said no problem because Marble Cake is very easy to bake.
He nodded his head and gave me the grin smile....I know he
loves to eat Marble Cake.
My son and I had a wonderful time buying books
at the Big Bad Wolf Book Sales,
so so so cheap........ and lots of varieties......too bad that my daughter cannot
tag along because of her AS (A Level) exam.
Well, upon smelling the aroma of my bake Marble Cake later,
sure my daughter will forget about the book sales....ha ha ha and also
to give her a boost on her memory to answer all her exams questions
without hesitation and with flying colours!
