Cupcakes, a little birdie and a Wedding...

About 18 months ago, I answered a plea from a very lovely lady. She had seen a picture of a little silver birdie clipped to the top of a cake stand and wanted to find one of those birds for her own Wedding Cake display. As I was reading her blog post http://mollycupcakes.blogspot.com/2008/12/calling-for-help.html I had the exact elusive bird sitting on my windowsill waiting to be packed away into the loft for safekeeping until the following Christmas... Well, of course I sent it to Catherine, and our friendship began...

Today my Family was delighted to be invited to celebrate with Catherine, her Handsome Husband Ben, and gorgeous Cupcake family...
And after partying, there seems to be a funny face competition...!!

Wishing Catherine & Ben Happy Ever After and lots of love...

Holiday, Volcanic Ash & a Computer Virus...

Oh, what a month... April turned out to be even more fabulous than we hoped, what with a wonderful trip across the Ocean to catch up with friends. We packed lots into our two week holiday which then turned into three and a half weeks due to the Volcanic Ash!!!

As you can see, there was much brother burying on trips to the beach...


trips on boats...

free tickets to Busch Gardens for stranded passengers ;0)

double Birthday celebrations (hubby and my Birthday on the same day!)

And a little bit of homework, a 3d cat (which we were very proud of!!)

Then almost as soon as we had got home and turned on the laptop, we were invaded with a nasty computer virus :0( Luckily that enabled lots of sewing time (ie I couldn't be distracted!!), and now life is slowly returning to normal (whatever that is...!!)
