Was in two minds about joining in as feeling a bit under the weather but had to miss last week as I was so busy - nothing new there then. I am also very late to the party this week!!!
Since I last blogged I've spent a day looking after my granddaughter who was poorly and couldn't go to school!
Then we had both granddaughters the weekend before last -overnight so their mummy and daddy could have a day out and a lie in! On the Sunday we all went out for Sunday lunch as part of eldest granddaughter's birthday celebrations. Also made a birthday cake for Ella.
 Then had my hair done, made a lot of cards, another cake for my eldest son and D.I.L. to celebrate their 10th Wedding Anniversary. We took ourselves off to have dinner out one evening as well - needed a break!!! :-)
Then last Thursday went to Yorkshire to celebrate our son and D.I.L's 10th Anniversary. They got a babysitter for the evening and we went out for a lovely dinner with them, my son's in laws and us. Champagne for starters! beautiful bread and olives and then beautiful food. had a starter and main but couldn't manage dessert but had an Irish coffee - delish. Then son and D.I.L. went away for the weekend and along with son's in laws we looked after our grandsons for the weekend. They were very good and at school on Friday and then went to a party on Saturday afternoon followed by a sleepover. As they didn't go to sleep until 4.30 am they were very quiet on Sunday!!! :-)
Lunch out yesterday and Sugar craft class today - phew.
Have been preparing for Saturday's class - 8/9 ladies coming!!!
Sorry Julia think I've gone on a bit!!!

Anyway my desk this morning- not very exciting.

It's tidier than this now as I sorted out all that scrap at the back.

Below colouring in on a Sunday morning with my granddaughters - at 7.30 am


Eldest son and dear D.I.L. last Thursday - their anniversary.

Below quick cake I made.

The happy couple ten years ago.

Their sons - our gorgeous grandsons.

Below a mug made out of paper. This was for a swap on theme of time - I put a twix and the options drink with a tag saying 'time for a break. (I sent it to lovely Sue who is also a WOYWWer :-)

 The One Direction cake I made for my granddaughter.

  11. Oh my goodness that is so much you have done, I thought I was a busy girl this last month but you run rings around me, nah only kidding. Love the cake with the hearts But On Direction I did security for them when they came to Australia last year, cocky little blighters they were. Ooopppsss should be careful shouldn't I. I do hope you get to have a rest.

  13. Wow! You've been busy! But they were all happy things you did. (although I don't know how happy you were, colouring at 7:30 in the morning....)
    The photos of the happy couple are great. That white cake (a quick cake?) is beautiful! I'm super impressed!
    I also liked the look of that paper mug. What a good idea! I have a friend who would like one of those. I might copy that idea if you don't mind.
    Have a good week.
    Thank you for letting me look over your shoulder.
