Toffee Failure!!!

I tried to make toffee today and failed miserably!!
I have never had this problem before and I blame Marks Mum (God rest her soul). Whilst I was preparing for the great event Mark recalled his mothers attempts at toffee making and how she failed on more than one occasion! To be honest she was not a good cook at all, according to her beloved son!
I have made varying types of toffee for many years, including when I was at catering college! I have NEVER failed, until now.
Why I still have no idea!!
So all ingredients into the pan

Boiled to the correct temperature using a sugar thermometer...

Poured into a greased tin..

You can see its not quite right here...

and definately not here, it is all sugary in the middle, which I do not understand

so mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, back to the drawing board I think!!!

Had the same thing with my fudge last week. Made it for a few years and it was so easy, even without a sugar thermometer. This year it is honey fudge sauce!

However it turns out - if it is sweet the family love it.
