I had a phone call this morning with some sad news that a lady I know from the market and another WI had been rushed into hospital. At the time, it was not known what is the matter with her, and I certainly wouldn't like to guess with the symptoms I've been told. I was asked if I would mind making some scones, and a few other items. Although my cert hasn't arrived yet, they are willing to over look that under the circumstances. At such short notice, all I could do was 32 scones - half are cheese and half are fruit.
After the phone call, it wasn't too long before I needed to start thinking about what to do Mary-Jane for her lunch. After that I had to take Ian to sign on and do the recycling, and pick up some flour etc for baking. So I started baking at around 3. Mary-Jane has her tea about 4.30. I don't think I did too bad, to say it was dropped on me. I really intended to do much more planning, about what I was going to make and in what order. Wrapping the scones up and writing the labels took a bit of time as well. I've not stuck the labels on yet as I couldn't remember what corner they are to go on. I'm also taking a few dozen eggs as well. If I sell everything that I take, I shall end up with about £6.50 profit. It's a start.
