Just popped on to let you all know that I am still around but seem to be struggling to fit everything in. I am still making cakes although things have gone a little quiet. I have had an enquiry for a wedding cake and made some samples over the weekend, they asked for a fruit cake, chocolate sponge and a vanilla sponge. These were collected today so will now need to see if they like them, if they do they will let me have some ideas on what decoration they want and how many tiers. I have some cake dummies as you know so can decorate them in the design they want so they can see it beforehand, that's if they go ahead. The Wedding is in September so that is a reasonable length of time as long as they don't leave it till last minute as I have to fit all this in around a full time job. So we shall see.
The weekend before we moved our son and his new family into a two up two down terrace away from the city centre and away from the horrible one bedroom apartment they were in. They have been in their new home for a week now and we saw them at the weekend. They needed help with curtains etc for the windows, so we went over. Hubby, son and daughter in law to be went out to see what they could get and guess what, little old me got to babysit. I had a wonderful time with our granddaughter and she wasn't phased at all about being left behind. She was a joy to keep an eye on. I managed to get a couple of pics in the bouncer that she has, I was told that when you put her in it and said bouncy bouncy, she did just that, she played in it for ages and then she had a nap in my arms while I watched TV. We took our dog with us to and she was very good around the little one in fact I think she was a little bit scared at seeing someone that is almost as small as her. Our granddaughter Luna is six months old this week and I think she is adorable.

This is work in progress, although hubby has promised he will be moving out today, he is in his room now doing the skirting and then it is clean up time and theeeeeen, I get my room back. He is a very noisy squatter and I like my space so I don't spend much time at my computer. I am not keen on the colour scheme but then he always likes to shock I am glad the rest of the house is not like this. Will post some photos when he has moved in and it is looking more like his room!
You know I said I had a craft room in a post way back, this was our son's old room now he has moved out we re-decorated and it has become my space and will be a spare room for visitors, I just need to get a sofa bed. However, I have a squatter, hubby decided he was doing out his study and so he moved in. Just to remind you here is a photo of before and after he moved in.
