Firstly thank you to everyone who as either sent me well wishes or have asked after me.  I am feeling better than I have done in the past couple of weeks. My cold cleared up but I was left with terrible sore joints and mussels, then to crown it all I got an inner ear infection.  I had bloods taken to see what's going on and tablets for the ear thing. ( other wise I am falling apart. ) plus old age is setting in.

As my title says More Of  The Same,  I had a call last week from one of the nurses at the Chemo Unit   Asking if I could make up a baby girl gift. Took along three for them to choose, and they decided between them the Nappy Cake. It turns out it's for one of the nurses whom I got to know last year and liked. She is expecting baby No 4 and another girl.  This is what I made this one up like.

Guess who forgot to photograph it clinged up?   The " it's a girl " ribbon is one of the reels I bought from Michaels.
I love these Yankee Candles this one is " Baby Powder " and is just how I loved the smell of my babies after there bath, I know today they say not to use it, but it never did mine any harm.

While I was at the Unit I also managed to sell a few gifts and Oragami boxes, so that's some more pennies into the charity fund.  

Well I'd better start thinking about getting back to work, then pick up the girls, they have to get their ponies ready for Hunting tomorrow, so there will be a few " oh do we have to" oh happy days.
Have a good weekend what ever you may be doing.

    Sooooo cute. Have sadly never smelt a bathed baby, only ones that have been in dire need of a bathe following a deposit in their nappy lol!

  16. Hi Hazel,

    Glad your dog is curled up near you its a scary time for them isn't it? My two cats are not happy they have had to stay in, the male is not that bothered but the female is petrified of fireworks, or at least the noise they make bless her.

    Love & Hugs
