Yay! I got some orders. So this week I will be gainfully employed making more bikinis for body builders. (Well, someone has to do it)
And Yay! I managed 30k on the weekend. It was 17k on Saturday followed by 13k on Sunday. There were twinges down my left hamstring and I could feel my hip tightening up on Saturday BUT on Sunday it stayed loose. My resident exercise physiologist and torturer has given me some strengthening exercises for my sloppy hips and core and I am being diligent.
And Yay! I made the most evil cupcakes ever on Friday. Chocolate mud filled with a toblerone/marscapone mix and topped with coffee buttercream and toblerone shavings. I'm calling it the PMS Cupcake.
This has given rise for the need to make an equally sexist cupcake for my dear hubby. I've been thinking about a cupcake filled with a chocolate ganache that's liberally laced with something alcoholic but being a non-drinker I'm not sure what and am open to suggestions. Then maybe espresso buttercream topped with a single blue M&M. I'll leave you to work out the significance of the candy topping. And this one I'll call The Mid-Life Crisis Cupcake.
I also came up with the Menopause Cupcake. Again it has to be chocolate but in the centre it comes with a hot flush of chilli/chocolate ganache.
See I need to be kept gainfully occupied or this is what I'm reduced to.
