No it is not my birthday again at least not till next year....
But I just have to show you these photo's taken from Kathryn's blog of the men in her life making me a birthday cake....
Now Kathryn is doing some studying for a few papers to boost her qualifications ... her first paper was due on the weekend of my birthday and as I had been invited for tea ... a cake had to be made, Kathryn was busy finishing her assignment so over to the boys to make a cake from a packet.
I just love the management levels going on here, obviously Ben was in charge of reading the instructions on the packet....
I have to tell you the secrete about the cake ... It was supposed to be chocolate but they bought a vanilla sponge oh well! white or brown it is a cake .....now it was cooked beautifully ... But they forgot to buy cream or something for the middle ... No sweat for the boys large and small ... they knew I liked chocolate so they used Hazelnut Chocolate spread ... must admit it was ingenious and different.
It is these little moments that tug at a Grandma's heart strings.
Stay a while and browse I chat about all nature of things mainly quilting and embroidery,but also life around us the fields, the flowers and family
Copying things from my blog
I am quite happy for people to use anything that I publish on my blog, if you wish to copy that is just great by me, I would treat that as a compliment, if it goes to a good cause then that is a double bonus.
Me. I am 70 yrs young, I finally went to university when I was in my 40's and received my diploma the same year as my daughter received hers. So there was life in the old gal.
I have been a follower and followed my then husband around the world, he working and me..I had a wonderful time and would not have changed a thing the experiences are 100 fold, I really must get around to writing a book. We have lived in France, USA, UK, Spain, Kuwait, Jordan, Philippines, China, Bahrain, Dubai and NZ to name but a few.
My nomadic life began in 1977 when my then husband was offered a job in Kuwait / Dubai Our wanderings continued and finally we ended up again in Dubai in 2006/9.. 30yrs later, so life has been in a full circle.
Stitching and Quilting kept me sane in all these years and are now my best friends. 2013 now sees me at home in New Zealand with my children and grand children and my last move from these shores. Vacations apart of course.
