Book of the week – Baking day
I found this book in the K-Mart Catalogue, and since we don’t have one anywhere near us there was no chance i would be getting it anytime soon. That was until i realised that Jack was going to Kalgoorlie for work, so i requested another book, and this one. Plus when they are advertising it for the price of $25.00 how can you pass that up.
