Good afternoon, oh it is lovely being off and being able to do things when I want and not having to wait until I have had tea and tidied up.

Now one of our bloggers has been stamping her feet and making herself sick, (its that terrible Tarus birth sign, being one i know what its like). she just doesn't want to wait to see my finished project, so just for you Heather I have got it to a point that I can reveal what it is.        YES it's a BEER CAKE.     Another 50th one and he is so into his music, I was given a 7ins record, the little sugar craft discs and guitars and an a load of concert tickets photographed and sent to my iPad, with " Mum can you make Derek a beer cake please".  Yes it's for my  son- in-law.

Tammy has kindly said I could do it as a project to show it on my blog, also as Derek won't see my blog she has said it was ok to show it at this stage, there is just little bits to add and I will show that next month just before Derek's birthday.    So Heather and the rest of you here it is now.

 I can only fit in six beers but there is to be music master vouchers
Going in to, which Derek will be over the moon with - more concerts to go to.  He went to his first concert in 1978. That was Jethro Tull, he is still a big fan of him to this day.
 Oh I wish I could get my photos more closer together.  Never mind
At least you can see what I have done.  A lot of work but so worth it.
The record is a limited one out this year.Y

So folks that's what I have been up to.   Please feel free to leave comments on what you think of this one.   As I have said  there is a few little bits to add but they can't be done till next month.  

I am off out to see what I can get to put a gift order together in.  This is a wedding gift, and I have been given an idea of what is wanted.

Look forward to your comments, and thank you for all the lovely ones that you have already left.
