As the family’s resident expert baker, Irene insisted on making her own cake
It tastes even better than it looks–the butter cream and the juice from the sliced strawberries soak into the cake to produce a luscious result.
Irene, as you can see, has always loved cake
She has always thought that being alive was much cause for celebration–and she still does
We rented a camper van to explore Switzerland when Irene was 4. Here she thinks the bunks are really cool
Earmuffs make her really happy
After her first day of school–in England
At a garden party, at my old college, Somerville Oxford
