it appears to have worked...

because the last task which i have to perform today is my least favourite, that is, vacuuming, i am finding there are a lot of things i need to blog about.

firstly i remembered to put sugar in the cheesecake and the mixture tasted nice, sweet with a hint of lemon. the initial ten minutes in the oven was too hot (cant turn off the fan) and it burnt the slightly overhanging crust:


but i have scraped the burnt bits off and it seems fine now:


except for the burnt crumbs on the top. sigh. i cant do a taste test on it till after dinner. fingers crossed.

meanwhile, the dogs sleeping beds have been put outside while i do the floors. they have taken turns in curling up in them. first possum:


cheeky little devil. then jem.


who says cattle dogs aren't really teddy bears!

i have also cast on and done three rounds of the waratah sock, that was my lunch break. but you dont need to see a picture of that. nor do you need to see pictures of my nice clean floors. if i ever get them.

have a great weekend

Yummo, cheesecake looks devine! You will be very popular in your house!

Well done on the back of the wrap too, and getting through all the fancy needle-work.

Have a great weekend bossing those sheep around.

I can report that the cheesecake was scrummy and so was the whole roast dinner that preceded it. Cheesecake was even nicer the next day for lunch too.
