Another Gorgeous Birthday gift x
We had a very relaxed saturday afternoon, the girls were exhausted from football, they do the full 90 minutes now, you can see towards the very end of the game they were all really flagging, but they managed to prevent the other team scoring, although it was a close call at times, plus the other team had subs so could keep changing players and for the past couple of matches we have had none, so the girls are really working hard, thankfully Sophie and Lucy kept up their fitness on holiday, they swam for hours each day and did all kinds of ball games, you can really tell which girls have bothered and which girls spent the summer sitting on their backside in front a lap top!
Now onto today's stunning card, it was my birthday card from Patricia, it was in a beautiful box, the keyring is a cute little gift that was packed in with the card, Paul must have thought it was part of the card! The oriental papers that Patricia has used are just divine and match perfectly, to me it reminds me of the Willow Pattern that my Nan had on great big china plates in her cabinet, she used to tell us the story of the pattern, I remember it started ''two birds, flying by' but the rest eludes me for now.
Patricia has embellished this card with her 'signature' hand made flowers, so pretty and made in matching papers. I am not too sure what the foliage die is that Patricia has used, but it is so lovely, delicate and not too overbearing, I would love to know please Patricia, they card was beautifully finished off with a Super Pretty Bow.
Thank you so very much Patricia, It really was a 'WOW' moment when i opened the box xxxx
I am hoping for another relaxed day tomorrow, I am going to make Millionare's Shortbread and maybe some brownies with the girls.
Paul went and picked another good pound and a half of Raspberries from the allotment on the way home from work, we must have had a good 5 or 6 pounds of raspberries altogether, which is fine with me as \I prefer them to strawberries. We have been freezing them on trays and then bagging them up, they are then perfect for our smoothies, Soph and I have been living on them, they include, Kale, frozen fruit (blackberries, raspberries, black and red currants), some frozen pineapple, fresh apple, pear and a banana, a scoop of oats and then some plain greek yoghurt and a little pure juice, I prefer cranberry, but Soph like pure orange juice! I know she is getting her 5 a day now atleast, they are yummy though and really make you feel full and ready to start the day!
Maybe I will bring the juicer into the cafe and you could all make your own?
That's all from me for now,
Love and hugs
