Today I thought I would get ahead and prepare everything in advance for daughter's birthday cake before I go to sing at the Bridgewater Hall this afternoon. Her birthday is on Friday and with Choir rehearsal on Tuesday, another Parents' Evening this Wednesday (I'm sure that's the 37th Parents' Evening I've done this year) and piano lesson and Brownies on Thursday, I just won't have much time during the week.
I baked the cake, which I can freeze, I made the buttercream which is now in the fridge and I decided to check the colours of regal ice I had for the decorations. I needed two more colours and thought I'd nip to the cake shop and buy them rather than waste time making them.
I hopped into my car, turned it on, took the handbrake off and.............. my car wouldn't move.
Checked again, yes, handbrake is off.
Car won't move.
Have now booked my car into garage on Tuesday. Fingers crossed it will manage to get around tomorrow (I'm doing a chocolate course) and Monday (need it to take daughter and friend to choir rehearsals after school).
What else can conspire to make my life even busier than it already is?
