Happy Liberation Day

The Channel Islands were the only part of the British Isles occupied by the German Army during the Second World War. Life was very tough for the remaining islanders ( many were hurriedly evacuated) but one day after VE Day, 7 May 1945 (victory in Europe) the islands were liberated.

Two years ago, very early in my blogging days, I posted a Liberation Day themed cake which I had made for a friend who was throwing a party. So here is a picture of the cake bearing a replica of the Guernsey flag.

It's a dull cool day today with the prospect of rain but that won't dampen 70th anniversary spirits- Happy liberation Day!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
