Cake I had such hopes of being sophisticated when writing this blog – but quite frankly who doesn’t like cake!
There’s a [lovely cake shop](http://www.konditorandcook.com/) round the corner from D’s office, a friend and I once skipped dinner and went straight onto cake from there.. that was a good tea!!
Chinese embroidery I should really have put books under B – I love books and am never without one in my handbag. Last year some good friends bought me [Chinese Embroidery Traditional techniques by Josiane Bertin-Guest](http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/087349718X/ref=sib_rdr_dp/026-6103629-3615642) which is a beautiful book which covers the history of Chinese embroidery as well as giving some great projects and inspiration!
Curly I was discussing my list of C’s with D on the train this morning and his first suggestion was curly! I have very curly ginger hair, only controllable (on a good day) with John Frieda’s [Frizzease](http://www.johnfrieda.com/products/products_main.asp?section=products&subSection=frizzEase&lineID=4) products!!
