Ask Aunty S

Dear Aunty S
Do you have a recipe for an easy chocolate cake?
I am a useless cook but my daughter has a friend coming to stay next week and has asked if I would bake her a cake.

Aunty S Responds:
Here’s my easy chocolate cake recipe. I have used this recipe for over 30 years so it is definitely tried and trusted!

Sandra’s Chocolate Cake

Put the following in a bowl.

1 cup sugar
1 egg
¼ cup milk

Life without Internet

What a 24 hours I have had!!!
No telephone and internet connection. Ah ah ah ah!!!!!!!
You may be wondering why.
Let me tell you why.
A bloke drove down the road in a height induced vehicle, hooked, and broke my telephone cable that hung across the road.
Did he stop and ask for my forgiveness for this violent act of accidental vandalism?
No he did not!
What did he do, I hear you ask.
This is what he did…absolutely nothing…he just tootled on his merry way…
I am expecting a dozen cream buns in my mailbox within the next twenty-four hours as way of an apology or I will be staring at your telephone pole with a deranged look in my eyes!
P.S. I hope you had a sleepless night worrying about Sandra’s inability to check the daily newspapers, weather updates, general gossip of overseas stars, Liam Neeson’s love life and more importantly, what if the end of this world occurred during this period of isolation from the world.
I would have been the last person to know and how would you have felt about that!!!

P.S.  Apparently a couple of you think that I am being seriously. I assure you that this is not the case as it is written as satire.
No worries though, I have contacted them and they have withdrawn their comments.
