Fortune Cookies – Great British Bake Off Bloggers’ 2017

Fortune Cookies

We were going to try making a board game for this week’s bake off challenge. We ran out of time, again, and decided to make fortune cookies instead.
They’re fun and we’ve never made them before so it was more of a challenge.

Last Week Kaycee made Cherry Cake but Ant’s having to make the fortune cookies this week due to time constraints.

Here are some of the fortunes Ant put in the cookies. I did wonder whether he was going to write out some Tim Vine jokes and put those in. He has a Tim Vine joke book with lots of cheesy jokes that make the girls groan!

He decided to Google some fortunes and print them out instead to make life easier. I have to mention that we have a new printer. It’s a wifi printer and he was excited that he was able to print from his phone!

Fairies Of Fryfam – Agatha Raisin #10 – Book Review #37

Fairies Of Fryfam

Agatha Raisin and the fairies of Fryfam is the 10th book in the series. I don’t know if I’ll be going on to read number 11. The more I read the more I find them a bit annoying. Things people say and the way they say them quite often don’t ring true.

I read them when I want a nice easy read but I’m just not able to ignore the things that are annoying me anymore!
I spent the whole book wondering where the cat was that she’d taken home at the end of the previous book. The question was answered at the end of the book by her asking her cleaner how the cat was. It was explained that she hadn’t got on well with three cats so had given it to the cleaner.
It felt like the author had forgotten all about the third cat then someone reminded her at the end.

Agatha rented a cottage in Fryfam because a fortune teller in the previous book had said she’d find true love in Norfolk. Instead, she found strange twinkling lights at the bottom of the garden and murder in the manor house.

Her obsession with James is getting annoying and I was pleased Sir Charles featured with Aggie this time. James wasn’t in it much which didn’t bother me at all!
I was annoyed at the end when Aggie went home and James was there. The ending felt rushed and contrived so she had something to write about for the next book.

This book, more than any others, annoyed me and I’ll be leaving it a while before trying the next one.
