Where has the last week gone? It's flown by!
Thank you to all the lovely visitors last week to my blog.
 I was very tied up with making a cake for my son and daughter in law's joint 40th birthday party last Saturday. I had a lot of trouble getting bottom tier baked properly. Long, long story - any way five bakes later I had a cake! Then to decorate!
 On top of that DH has been poorly - we were due to travel to Yorkshire on the Thursday for the party. Sadly he couldn't go at all so I went with youngest son and family on Saturday morning and came home on Sunday.
It was a fabulous party but it felt very strange not having DH there and he was so upset to have to miss it. He is still not properly well.

On my desk, aka dining table I still have my Craft Fair makes! It's a week today - eeeek! I will just be glad when it's done!

Also spread to the floor - this being just a fraction of makes waiting for finishing touches!

There was a photo booth at the party with lots of props for fun photos - lots of fun!

  1. Oh wow, Anne, that cake is amazing!! I adore the black/white theme and the whizzy things on the are so clever. I love the photos from the party too, especially the props :-) What a shame your DH couldn't make it, poor chap, he must have been miserable about that...but best for him to stay in the warm and get better.
    Hugs, LLJ 15 xx

  2. Good to hear you've been partying it but sorry to hear hubby wasn'r well enough to join you.....hope he's really well very soon.
    Gorgeous cake in the end so was well worth all the effort.
    Have a great week.
