Today, we will make the Christmas cake.

Eggs were added.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-MDL9Qta3NXs/TuXmXzEmEJI/AAAAAAAAEu4/IhDUBusX30U/s500/cake4.jpg

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-NyseJn-5WQY/TuXmbc77GfI/AAAAAAAAEu8/u6eM16-2Zno/s500/cake5.jpg
The cake will take 4 hours in the oven, after our bedtimes. Maybe we'll have a photo with it when the cake is fed some more brandy.

Magna Science Adventure Centre, England - 2nd January 2012

By: miapearl

On our way home, we went via Magna, an industrial science museum set in an old steelworks near Rotherham/Sheffield.
The museum is in 4 sections. The first section we visited was Fire.

Then, onto water
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-QYkqLOA7siM/Twt7ZjhL4ZI/AAAAAAAAE2E/F-L9dUEKbRs/s500/magna13.jpg
Lots of possibilities to get wet but we didn't bring any towels, so will be careful.
