Tea Time

Can't believe I haven't been on here for nearly a month! Actually, I can.
Work has taken over lately and I only have 2 rubbish pictures to show for it. The school where I work is preparing for its annual year 6 production. This year it is Wind in the Willows.
This is the tea set I made for Badger but I have lots more to show you if I can ever remember to take my camera to work!

Icing on the Cake (or the doughnut)

I'm tired I'll keep it brief!
I iced so many doughnuts on Saturday and spent far too much money on sprinkles but I think the boy appreciated it. The party was the usual 2 hours of hectic madness and I was very glad when it was time to hand out the slices of cake and thank you gift. Phew! It's still not his actual birthday till Friday but that's the party done with for another year.

Today was another celebration, the football club awards ceremony. Here is my beautiful son with his trophies.

Night night xx

Party prep

More disco organising today. I have just finished making some little doughnut magnets as thank you gifts for Soren's friends to take home. I used shrink plastic and made tiny confetti using a hole punch and some tissue for the magnets to nestle in.

Before the rain came, Soren and I made some very quick doughnut bunting which is not the best but will look ok under the disco lights I think!

I took a picture of these Sweet Williams because they are making me happy every night as I collapse on the sofa to watch Spring Watch. They were a gift from the 2 teachers I support at school. I am really lucky to work in the classrooms of great teachers that are also lovely friends.

It's approaching my bedtime (9.30 because I am a lightweight this week) so I shall wish you a good night. It does feel wrong going to bed when it's still light though!

On Saturday Soren is having a birthday disco and I have been having a practice with some of the foody ideas. I saw this fab idea for Marshmallow Zombies on Pinterest and couldn't wait to try it. Not sure I love eating them but luckily the kids do!

We gave out the invitations 3 weeks ago and I have spent the evening chasing replies. I am having a moan on here, in the hope that you will agree that it is very rude not to reply! So annoying!

I have been making some other bits and bobs too, which I will hopefully show you soon. I just seem to have been extra busy at work and home lately, the sun comes out and suddenly the gardening goes on the never ending jobs list too! So apologies for my sporadic blogging and have a lovely week :)

Hello everyone! I went away again for a bit, no reason really, just having a bit of a lull.
So what has been happening around here of late? Not a great deal!

I finished another picture for a family that wanted terraced houses on a hill and their pet budgies to feature!

Morten has been poorly and been prescribed many tablets. He also 'helped' me clean the inside of Bertha. Did I ever tell you that my car is called Bertha?

I made a few cake flags and bunting for a friend on her last day at work. She had the same idea and so we had so much cake! Oddly we had both made Nigella's Guinness Gingerbread. It really is the best cake, especially if you need to make it in advance, it just gets stickier.

My Maisy dyed her hair 'black cherry' and it looks gorgeous. (Gorgeous but grown up!)

The sweet peas have been planted out and the rest of the garden is slowly coming round to the idea that it is safe (ish) to bloom. My feet decided to come out of sock hibernation too and I got some new spotty trousers from Uniqlo....£9 bargain!

Happy Birthday Lovely Jamie!

And what could be better than a hamster cage cake??
