OMG have you seen the bedding !!!!

With a matter of months before the London 2012 Olympic Games The merchandise is on sale and i am loving it. Whether you are lucky enough like me to be going to the Olympics this year there is a  great range of merchandise on sale. I am lucky enough to be seeing water Polo in August thanks to Cadburys ... so i am sure i will be buying some merchandise soon enough the hard part is choosing what i want as i love pretty much all of it and below is some of my favourites from the selection currently on sale now.

These towels are just fab so even if you find yourself not going the Olympics sporting these at your local sports centre will show everyone how you are supporting the  Team GB and if you not as lucky as me to have Tom Daley practising at your Local Swimming pool then i am sure other people will like them too. Wont be long before my kids will be using these i am sure just need to save my pennies first as £18 they are not cheap for a mum on a budget like me.
Now these are just a mere few of my favs so far coming in sizes single double in the Flag linen ranging from £30, £45 and in the Wenlock Queens Gaurd Linen coming in size single only at £30.00 .... But i have found quite a few stocklist around is worth shopping around as prices can vary quite a bit

Herman The German Friendship Cake

Hello, my name is Herman.
I am a sourdough cake. I’m supposed to sit on your worktop for 10 days without a lid on.
You CANNOT put me in the fridge or I will die. If I stop bubbling, I am dead.
Day1: Put me in a large mixing bowl and cover loosely with a tea towel.
Day 2: Stir well
Day 3: Stir well
Day 4: Herman is hungry. Add 1 cup each of plain flour, sugar and milk. Stir well.
Day 5: Stir well
Day 6: Stir well
Day 7: Stir well
Day 8: Stir well
Day 9: Add the same as day 4 and stir well. Divide into 4 equal portions and give away to friends with a copy of these instructions. Keep the fourth portion.
Day 10: Now you are ready to make the cake. Stir well and add the following:
  •  1 cup sugar
  •  half tsp (teaspoon) salt
  •  2 cups plain flour
  •  2/3 (two thirds) cup of cooking oil
  •  2 eggs
  •  2 tsp vanilla essence
  •  2 cooking apples cut into chunks
  •  1 cup raisins
  •  2 heaped tsp cinnamon
  •  2 heaped tsp baking powder
Mix everything together and put into a large greased baking tin. Sprinkle with a quarter of a cup of brown sugar and a quarter of a cup of melted butter. Bake for 45 minutes at 170 ‐ 180C.
When cold cut into finger pieces. The cake freezes well and is also delicious warm
with cream or ice‐cream.
