Yesterday was busy but lovely (mostly). the one not-lovely thing was that George, the lovely young man who gives me one hour a week of gardening, will be having to work on Saturdays soon so can't continue beyond the next two months. George started helping me out when he was 13 so I've had a good long time of help from him but I knew he's be off at some point. I need to look around for someone else now.
The good things were that it was Alex's family party and, bless him, he wanted a Chinese takeaway which we all enjoyed very much. I'm amazed how much food we managed to work our way through. I thought there would be loads left but there wasn't. He organised a few games too, one of which was Book Reviews which was very funny in places.
During the day he and Beth went to Lakeside (his treat!) and came back with a box of doughnuts in lieu of a birthday cake. Oh, my, they were lovely. I had ordered some cookies from Honeycat Cookies which is a small business run by an OU friend who is a very talented artist. Her iced cookies are true works of art. If you click on this link, it will take you to her site. I took some photos but they don't do the cookies justice so I will wait until hers come onto Facebook and ask if I can borrow a few.
|They tasted as good as they looked!|
Have a lovely day.
