The shade, sponge cake and a man knows the lining of his own coat.

1. A very cheap paper lampshade makes such a different to the bedroom -- although it takes a lot of swearing and cursing to get the old shade down because age has welded it to the light fitting.

2. I paste my mother's sponge cake recipe into my Dodo Book for Cooks. I've been out and bought some margarine specially. The cake comes out much better than the one I baked using butter.

3. The lining of her coat is printed with butterflies.
