The answer to "The Ultimate Question Of Life, The Universe, And Everything".
Why it is 42, of course.
So this should be a very good year I think.
I am rather looking forward to it, the best thing about being 42 is that I am so very far away from my next significant birthday and therefore feel positively young for someone in her forties.
Tilly and I worked together on the cake. I chose the recipe and would not be persuaded of any other option.
At 42 you know what you like when it comes to cake.
Actually, in my book, this may be The Ultimate Cake, the cake to rule all others.
Raspberry Mascarpone Layer Cake. The answer to everything. Recipe from the excellent Gorgeous Cakes (Gorgeous Series)
Incidentally, it's about twenty-five years since I first listened to The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, I recall that the radio series was a marvellous distraction whilst revising for exams and having re-listened recently I still found it as fresh and quirky as the first time around. My listening peaked Dylan's interest and he has been galloping his way through the books .
