Some more news

Whilst I am updating you all with what has been happening in my life, I thought I would also share this with you. Our son recently moved out, the time had come really I realise that he could not stay at home any longer, two strapping men in the house was just too much and son and dad quite often clashed. Phillip moved out some weeks ago (officially) but previously had been spending his time between here and his girlfriends. They recently got engaged which was great news but a few weeks ago they hinted that they may be expecting. Well I can tell you it is now official they visited us the other day and presented us with a photo of the scan, I am so happy for them and I am now looking forward to being a Gran or a Nana I don't really mind which as long as they are happy and everything goes well for them. I am having fun at the moment calling Kevin Granddad. I finally caught up with my sister yesterday and gave her the news that she will now be a Great Auntie, as I am to her granddaughter Susie (who is doing really well). I think I will have a busy time ahead of me and will have to dust off my knitting needles and crochet hooks. See you all soon. Sue x

Well, where do I start!

Life has been so hectic lately I have just not had time to do anything on my blog since my last post which was where we were fitting a new kitchen for Kevin's parents. Since then we have gutted our son's room who has now left home. This is to be my play room for my other crafts as well as space for visitors, I will up date you on that another time. I have also been baking (well there's a surprise I here you say.) A friend at work celebrated a birthday this week (she thought she could keep it quiet by not saying anything, however we have our ways) so I though I would give her a gift of one of my decorated cakes. I made a 4" square sponge cake and decorated it in white and lilac fondant with a matching ribbon and presented it to her in a cake box together with a card. Just to see the expression on her face gave me a real buzz. Here is a couple of pictures that I took.

I also have another order coming up for a colleague at work whose sister is soon to celebrate her 30th birthday so I am planning for the design of that next, the brieft is white with pink and butterflies. I have a cricut cake and so I thought I would cut some out on that. I managed it however I think I was a bit rough with them when I left them to dry so when I came to decorate them they disintegrated but at least I managed to produce some, I need to make some more and see what happens. Here are the pictures of my efforts. I am not the best at taking photo's so I apologise for the quality.
