My Wonderful Birthday Card from Michele xx
A disorder that we all suffer from at times!
Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
Oooh it has got sooooo Chilly!!!!
I was so cold in that big old bed all on my own, and Milo just would not settle, I think it was a combination of the howling wind and Paul not being in bed, Milo usually snuggles up on the bed next to Paul, which to me is so hilarious because Paul was the 'least keen' to have a cat when it was discussed, but he spends so much time playing with them and Milo is like Paul's 'shadow'! So I don't think I got 1 hour of complete sleep!
Now onto today's card, This fabulous card, designed by our Michele was very apt as we had just arrived home from holiday when I got to open my cards and the piles of ironing were a very prominent feature in our house, so this card did bring a smile to my face, I could just about squeeze the door shut and forget about the laundry for the day, so thank you Michele for such a fun card, it really bought a smile to my face xxxx
Michele also sent me this hilarious and very true poster, I know that I can spend a whole day in my craft room doing many different things yet have no 'card' to show for it at the end of the day, but I do have a basket full of PHD's (projects half done)! These are the days that we learn new things have a dabble into something new, getting your hands dirty! I think that there are a few of you ladies amongst us that turn their hands to many new things, we only have to look back at the Mixed craft days to see that!
Thanks for sending this in Michele xxxx
Our home has been smelling delicious this last week, what with Margaret P's Boiled fruit cake last weekend, which didn't last very long, I think I use that recipe for our Christmas cake, putting glazed fruit and nuts on top 'Genoa' cake style, which is generally preferred to the iced and marzipaned traditional cake in our house!
Friday night I made Margaret's P's Lemon & Coconut Drizzle cake (well in fact I made two) as the one that Margaret made me for my birthday didn't last long enough.
Tonight the smell of the bananas getting a little too ripe in the fruit bowl had me searching for Banana cake recipes, I found one on Pinterest for Crumble Topped Banana Muffins, you make the muffin mix and then make a cinnamon flavoured crumble topping to sprinkle on before baking, oh they smell yummy, a good way to used up the bananas too as I am not keen on them once they get past being 'green tinged', I don't like them when they start to get brown spots!
Do any of you have a tried and tested recipe for Viennese Fingers/Melting Moments please???? I haven't been able to find one for months and I am suffering withdrawals. x
Saba, I am hoping that you had a trouble free journey home, I am sure that Peter was so very pleased to have you back beside him, thank you so very much for making the retreat part of your scheduled visit home,
you have no idea how much in meant to me that you found the time to come, It was such an absolute pleasure to meet such a kind hearted, caring and totally hilarious lady xxxx
Thank you all for your continued support, I hope that you are all still enjoying your visits???
Love and Hugs to all,
ps.. Good luck to all of you in Sue's Launch drawer today! xxx
