Madness leading upto vacation - Part II

Well, finally most of the shopping done, last weekend before flying home and not a bit of packing done yet! Loads of laundry left , loads of ironing left.

And what is it that I am doing - baking a cake. I am sure a lot of you must be wondering - why on earth is she doing, baking a cake, when she is so short on time? Well, I misjudged quantities, and have loads of butter and eggs leftover.. In London, I had friends close by, so all leftover, perishable provisions would go to them. Here, unfortunately, I do not have any close friends nearby, so have to use it all up :(

So anybody fancying a slice of pineapple upside down cake - please head this way :)


Edited to add - Here's whats left of the cake...not a pretty sight.. e-sending it to all of you :)
