Baking is my favourite pastime, even though I cannot eat because I am tube fed. Why? All my life people have done things for me; by baking I can make others happy and nothing gives me greater pleasure.
Recently I held a coffee morning in aid of Tearfund, you can read the extraordinary figure I rose in the article below. Here is a baking poem:
Filling, beating, stirring, pouring,
Baking beauty life restoring,
Dripping goodness love in sharing,
Aromatic health repairing,
Pleasant parcels held with pleasure,
Tantalising tastes to treasure.
