August 28. Day 240. Let them eat cake

Never let the truth get in the way of a good story. Did you hear that, party poopers? Was it so bad when we were allowed to believe that Marie Antoinette once said the solution for peasants starving because there was no bread was to "let them eat cake". She's been dead since 1793 so it's not like she's going to be subjected to a social media hate campaign for her hideous insensitivity any time soon. Advising people to eat cake is, in fact, quite a sage thing to do, provided of course they are not living in dire poverty. Cake does make things better. Today was my mum's birthday and that has to mean cake. A crazy busy week meant that the celebration may have been delayed until tomorrow until I learned that my vet friend Megan had baked cupcakes as an RSPCA cupcake day fundraiser. The stars had aligned and were telling me just one thing - eat cake. And as the photos show there's another great saying that must be considered here - you can choose your friends but not your family. Clearly we are all crazy - about cake at least
