I sent some of these in the post, early last week.
They arrived in record time, I was surprised. but ever so glad! It was the best feeling to send someone a home cooked pressie, from me to them. Just awesome.
I'm planning to do it again next month. Have you heard of #fucktober? I hope Eden likes baked goods ;)
