Guilty Pleasures

I went out to for a lunch date yesterday at a friend's house in Chichester with some other friends, She made Indonesian food and spoilt us with delicious cakes that she made herself, dark chocolate roulade and white chocolate roulade drizzled with raspberry coulie and lemon drizzled cake, they're insanely delicious, totally Heaven!

I just gotta ask for the recipes! she said she left out the flour when making the roulade and what a difference in the taste! I got home quite late only to receive a disappointing message from my friend who supposed to be the guest in our house next week, to cut a long story short, she changed her plan and will be staying in a Hotel in London and will try to take a train to my place for a day trip to meet me and spend a day with me. I guess disappointment is an understatement but i can't blame her, after all London is a much interesting place for tourists :(

Thankfully I haven't canceled my craft fayre and i still can go to see The Saturdays' concert in Brighton with my friends, so i'm not that upset :) but i guess now i can resume to making more craft things to sell and not worrying about anything else and besides I now like the clean and tidy look of my spare bedroom :)


  1. Wow those cakes look delicious! Would you be willing to share the recipes!?

    Yay you're still doing your craft fair! Good luck, you'll do great! My next one is tomorrow! xxx

  2. Hi Susan,

    Those roulade's look seriously good!

    The spare room looks so pretty and cosy :) I like the bunting cushion on the bed..

    I hope it goes well for you at the Craft fair, and have a fun time at the concert!
    Have a great weekend..

  3. Oh my! Those are some seriously yummy-looking cakes!! I'd definitely be interested in the Lemon Drizzle recipe if your friend gives it to you - I'm always trying to perfect mine :-)

    I'm sorry to hear that your guest won't be stopping by any more - especially as you've made such efforts to make the room lovely, but I'm really glad your Saturdays concert and craft fair can still go ahead. I'm sure you'll have a brilliant time at both!

  4. I love the look of your spare bedroom. I really wish my spare room was this lovely xxx

  5. Oh, Susan, the cakes look so delicious and how wonderful of your friend to invite everyone to share. I know you are always looking for ways to maintain your weight, so here's a tip for you. Even though you don't like to get out and walk, another good way is to turn some music on and just dance around inside your house, OR you can watch some tv and walk in place. You will find it makes a BIG difference, then you don't have to feel so guilty when you eat a little cake. LOL...
    I am sorry that your friend will not get to spend much time with you, but looks like your situation worked out pretty good. You still get to see her for a day, you still get to do what you want by attending your craft fair and concert, and your spare room is all clean! Things worked out just fine. And your friend gets to see beautiful London!
    I can't wait to hear about your craft fair!
    Have a love day!

  6. Oh, the "spoils" look positively delicious!! Gosh I like desserts. What a fun time you must have had.

    See? Everything turned out for the good of everyone in perfect harmony. Gosh, this is a lesson for us all. Worrying is futile. You got a clean room, still get to go to the fair and concert, and have a day with your friend. Big Sigh! All is well.

  8. Yummy cakes! It's the holiday season so guilt is NOT allowed!!! Eat up!

    Sorry to hear about your friend but like everyone else says, you have the room organized now! I hope she can at least make it for a night or two:)

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. Those cakes look amazing! Sorry you won't have your friend staying, but it's probably worked out for the best, you can still see her and do your craft fair x

  10. Ohh those look super yummy! Sorry about your friend but you can still see her right?
