That changed mid-week when I came home to find this:
Fashionista Sister had ordered a cake and had it sent to me as a surprise with the proceeds going to Islamic Relief's work in Syria. She had said it was to cheer me up and it really, really did.
Never underestimate the effect of good deed, no matter how big or small. To the person on the receiving end it can make such a difference.
The kids thoroughly enjoyed this, as did both our neighbours. I am eating sensibly at the moment, so made do with Darling's leftovers rather than a whole slice, but it was tasty nevertheless.
