Birthdays and CAL

Hello to you...
It's been a busy and windy week!
I hope everyone is safe and well after that awful storm and haven't experienced too much damage? We were lucky and only had one large branch down that landed in a safe place... It didn't half make a loud thump when it dropped!
My daughter turned 8 yesterday. I know everyone says it, but where does the time go? I can believe it.
So I hope I will be forgiven for being a day late with my post this week?

Yesterday we a had a small tea party for my daughter, with family and school friends. She told me later that she'd had a lovely birthday - so spending my whole day-off baking and cooking was totally worth it!
I did enjoy decorating the cupcakes!
They seemed to be popular. I have one or two left that I've squirreled away...
I made a little felt dolly from a 'Molly Makes' back issue. It was a lovely evening project, sat on the sofa in front of the fire...
Meet the kitties!

I found these on my camera and wanted to share them.
My fiance gave me these today!
I don't usually go in for Valentines day but I love my flowers.

Joining in again with the lovely Marianne and Chrissie 
Pop over and see what they've been up to this week - you wont be disappointed.

I've been crocheting a blanket this week just a never ending granny square one.
 I know its not a very good picture, the light has been terrible today. Will hopefully be ready for its reveal next week...

I'm very excited as I've gained some lovely new followers! YAY! Thank you for joining me.
I hope you all enjoy a lovely weekend and stay safe and dry.

  5. Happy Birthday to your daughter, and Happy Valentines Day to you!! Glad to know that you are safe and sound. xx

  6. So nice you were able to give your little one such a lovely celebration. Happy Valentine's Day, your flowers are so beautiful.

  7. I could just eat one of those cupcakes. Kids certainly grow quickly my eldest daughter is 30 this year and I wonder where the time went.

  8. Your Kitty Cats are adorable. I too have decided to crochet a Granny, but I'm doing stripes instead of the never ending square. But it's just so nice to be able to sit of an evening and crochet without really thinking about. Needs more pics on your square next post.
    Have a good weekend.
