Love in an old climate

Thanks to sion_a for the l337 5cr488l3 71l35!


On May 5th (I'm catching up, slowly, backwards) addedentry and I got a bit older. On the actual day we went out for a meal at new restaurant Agora at the Copper Kettle (unpretentious, inexpensive, jolly tasty), and on Sunday 7th lots of lovely people joined us for drinks at CB2 (stylish internet cafe, good food, reasonable wine, bemused staff).

addedentry and I made a cake, and in the time-honoured tradition I was still decorating it only an hour or so before the party. But in the end, with his brains and my looks steady hand, it turned out looking pretty damn good, if I do say so myself.

People ate cake, drank wine, and talked about music and politics, and fivemack did his best to look BAD:

A good time was had by all; at least, a good time was had by us, and nobody else complained. And in case anybody was wondering, being 28 seems pretty good so far.

The answer to 22 down is "JOB OFFER".

Possibly the best cake in the world, ever.

Hope you had lovely birthdays. Good cake, I have drunkenly volunteered to make a big fat chocolate wedding cake. Help me!

Can't help you there I'm afraid ... my secret is that <whisper> I'm not actually very good at making cakes. </whisper> I just have a couple of infallible cake recipes which I do every time, and then I put all the effort into the decoration. I'm good at precisely one type of decoration (edible pen/paint on flat white icing) and I stick to that; if you asked me to make big icing wedding-cake flowers, or anything involving spun sugar, or even those trendy thinly-shaved curls of chocolate (which I'm sure just involve having the right sort of grater, but I can't do them), I'd throw up my hands and call in an expert! :)
