The Big News broke while I was away training in Edinburgh. When I got home, at about 8pm, I was met by Joy, who had baked a surprise for me.
(The cupcakes are stuck to a glass chopping board with icing. She’s good, but not quite good enough to make cakes hover in the very air. Yet.)
I was thrilled. I took another picture:
and then we sat down to dinner.
When I went back to the living room to get the cakes for dessert, I found two things:
Hope, Joy’s dog, fast asleep on the floor with her head resting on half of a cupcake case.
Fortunately for Hope, we were all in such a good mood that we laughed until we hurt. (Joy made us go out of the room to do it, so Hope wouldn’t know we thought it was funny. She takes dog ownership very seriously.)
I ate the ‘C’. It was delicious.
