Then again, I’m not sure how strong a flavour you do want on a Battenburg. I’ll rewatch the Great British Bake Off and see what they did, and then emulate some of those.

Perhaps surprisingly, I didn’t wake up in agony today, sore from yesterday’s climb. Perhaps that means the delayed onset muscle soreness arrives tomorrow, or I dodged it. I did have both kids sleeping in my bed last night, while my wife was downstairs on the sofa. Now, with her passed out upstairs the roles are reversed. As it gets colder, we’ll need to huddle together for warmth again …
