Week 2, Day 5: CAKE!

I hope you have been enjoying the tasks; I understand that busy lives mean you don't always get to prioritise yourself so well done for keeping it up. This is the last task before the weekend off (not from your nightly Yoga and diary entries, these should be completed everyday). Please use the time to go over anything you didn't have time to do or re-do anything you especially liked. Don't forget about your Pinterest boards and you can always add some new dreams in your book's spare pages. Hope you enjoy today's task, and we'll catch up on Monday. Xxx

Meet the neighbours

Growing up in childhood house at Fiveways in Brighton I knew all my neighbours. Not to sure what they thought of me, but I had no problems chatting to everyone. I had many friends who lived on my street, I did gardening and babysitting for many more and often called round for a juice and a biscuit with one particular lady called Primrose. Primrose lived on her own, she didn't go out much and had lived an extraordinary 90 years, but most of her friends has long since passed away and she was glad of the company.

She loved showing me photos of her glory days - she was a girl about town, stunningly beautiful with a fantastic wardrobe and many handsome suitors! I am not sure how it all started but I am very glad it did. I only realised that was not the norm when I moved away from home and when I had my first flat in Brighton, it was months before I even recognised the other residents in the building. Living in a village now, I know many people and know there must be more Primroses that I have yet to get to know. Today's task is two-fold: make a cake and take it round to a neighbour you don't know.

Below you will find a recipe for my banana bread, it's quick and easy and is simple to adapt for an alternative version for those (like me) that have food intolerances. Don't forget to double the ingredients if you are making one for yourself too!

Then all you have to do is wrap it up, go knock on the door and introduce yourself (please don't put yourself in a vulnerable position!) You never know where this act will lead you if nothing else, you've made some yummy cake and someone else's day a bit more exciting!
