Monday morning blues!

Oh don’t we all have that sinking sensation on our stomach as Monday morning approaches! I’ve just had a wonderful weekend walking in the countryside, scrambling over rocks and best of all celebrating birthday parties! I’ve been baking  and trying to become a domestic goddess. Now one of the most traditional birthday cakes in England is the Victoria Sponge cake. It’s a simple recipe to follow and it’s absolutely delicious. It’s also a good way to practice your English by looking through food blogs! And even if you don’t fancy whipping up  a cake, there is some good imperatives which you can practice.

Vocabulario : Word up!
