We have been a house of lurgy this week. General misery all round and my husband is suggesting we all go and live in the desert or a yacht to avoid ever catching such a horrible cold again. Anyway, in a bid to boost our immune systems and another excuse to eat cake I made a beetroot chocolate cake. We ate it for brunch this morning with handfuls of superfood blueberries, raspberries and redcurrants. Oh and a bit if cream - well that's calcium ticked. Now that I'm fuelled on coffee and cake I'm off to help out with grouting in the sunshine.
