Oh dear oh dear.
We have started writing the cookery book. It is to be filled with the most popular yummies that we make and bake. Well when I say ‘we’ are writing, I mean the sort of Royal ‘We’, that really means I waffle on, veer away from the point ever second sentence and poor Perky tries to make sense of what I am on about.
Perky, as we have already ascertained is really rather bossy and it appears organised. I say appears because I have in my time managed to pull off a slight aura of organised but it has never lasted long. I therefore await in trepidation for the Real Perky to appear in the near future.
See, I am veering from the point again.
Perky ‘the organised’ is entering the kitchen with us every morning looking exceptional as usual and sits serenely on a chair with a note book in hand. She valiantly attempts to take short hand of my waffle – and of course the interjections of Pinky which often amount to ‘shut up Mum’.
I have no idea what notes Perky is taking, probably evidence for my sectioning in the near future and nothing what so ever to do with cakes. This shorthand malarky is a professional writers opportunity to keep the masses away from what they really write and think – it seriously scary stuff and very unnerving.
However, Perky has managed to transfer some of her funny squiggles onto the computer so us mere mortals can read it.
It has turned out to be an over 15′s cookery book. Apparently talking about t**’s when discussing pancakes is not the ticket for a bog standard cookery book suitable for children.
This of course means that we also now have to sort out a version suitable for Great Aunt Hilda and the children.
We at Roody’s just seem to make life more difficult for ourselves – or more difficult for poor Perky who has to sort out the whole sorry saga.
Perky is no pessimist and is assuring Roody that all will be well and it will be ready very soon.
Roody will keep you updated on progress!
