Cavalock and The Almost Easter Post

Hot-crossed buns! The Baker-at-Home bought these from Baker & Cook earlier this week, just in time for Easter. Yah, when I was growing up in the old family home eons ago, having a hot-crossed bun around this time of year is or was a thing when I was a wee lad.

Not bad but a little too much cinnamon for my liking. It seems like after moving out of the old family home back when I was still in primary school, we hardly celebrated Easter anymore. I remember one time me Dad brought me to a kids' party at Mandarin Hotel in Orchard cos it was down the road from the old family home, and I freaked out and started wailing when the giant costumed animals came out. I can say stuff like this cos only two people read this blog, you know who you are. ;) And thanks for dropping by.

Am hooked on this sci-fi horror novel The Wicked and The Damned right now. Two-thirds through and I'm loving it. Set in the popular Warhammer 40K universe although you don't need any prior knowledge of that setting, it started with three strangers meeting on a cemetery planet. Each has no memory of why he or she is there but they all have a story to tell and well, hopefully the ending makes sense. Fingers crossed.
