Tis nearly the season to be jolly, and in keeping with the festive season forward planning policy implemented by number one wife, it is the season to be making christmas cake. In fact, three cakes are to be provided for various grateful parts of the family, which means that at this time of year the house is full of the glorious smell of cake baking. And I can't eat any of them. This is so unfair. I've made arguments along the lines of quality control "We need to make sure that they are as good as last years" and been rebuffed. I've also been told that any evidence of cake tampering will be severely dealt with.
Never mind, only four more weeks.
