1. A damp and rainy day, perfect to stay in, keep warm and finish that book I've been reading.
2. The grandmother in the story bakes chocolate cake for the grandchildren. I am now craving the chocolate cake, so I bake one. I find the perfect recipes for the cake and the frosting and I am very pleased to have turned out the cake to suit my imagination.
3. When the afternoon starts to stretch out and turn long, I get out the ironing.
