Hi there everyone. Hope you are all well and that you enjoyed a good weekend.
I had a very productive weekend in the garden. As well as the general gardening work, I also rubbed down all the benches, using hubby's new sander machine, and then painted them pretty colours. Of course, hubby being a man, had to spend half an hour explaining to me how to use this little machine. Golly gosh, I just don't know what I would do without him, always looking over my shoulder to make sure that I'm doing things properly. (I don't know whether my American friends will recognize the irony (or even sarcasm!) in that remark!!!).
I have received an order for yet another birthday cake, for someone who has a birthday today. Yes, that's you, DESIREE, over at Driftwood Ramblings. I only met Desiree recently through Carol over at Facing50withhumour, but we all seem to have the same sense of humour, which is great. Also, she is my first Follower from South Africa, a really beautiful country.
Carol (Facing50etc.etc.) has created (drew it all herself apparently. Ooooh!!) a Blog Button as a surprise for Desiree for her birthday, whilst my good friend Katherine from Katherines Corner and Made It For You very kindly agreed to make the Grab My Button bit to go with the picture. I was supposed to be showing you Carol's brilliant creation here but, unfortunately, it won't let me save the picture that she e=mailed me. Sorry about that Carol, but I'm sure everyone will be rushing over to Desiree's Blog page to see it for themselves!!
Ooops! Nearly forgot to show you the wonderful birthday cake that I have created. I am now looking for premises and will be opening up my own select little cake shop very soon, and orders are now being taken!! I do think that I've surpassed myself with this latest creation, even if I do say so myself. Are you ready? Ta da!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DESIREE!!
The magnolias are now out in our garden and I'm feeling very happy at the moment, which probably has something to do with the fact that my daughter and family (not forgetting the puppy, Alfred!) are coming over here to stay with us for a week soon. Can't wait, as we haven't seen them since Christmas.
