One finished "Beer Cake"   It's finally  done and dusted, there was a change in when it was required so I left finishing it until I got back off holiday.   I ended up using Playmobil and Lego toys, Kevin is a big kid at heart and these things will appeal to him.   Now I just hope it meets the criteria of the order. 

16ins square cake board,  road is black sand paper, gravel and brick papers  are from a model shop, box holds six small beers,  and as I said motor bikes are from " playmobil" bricks  tyres and fence.  " "lego " ribbon round the edge is from stash and it came from " IKEA" 

Well holiday over for another year, and after 8 days of lovely sun shine it's back to British weather and warm clothes.   I don't sun worship and sit in the shade and have factor 50 on all the time, yet I have a bit of colour , not tanned just a slight colouring.   We were lucky as the owner has his villa in the grounds near the quiet pool so we were able to lie all the time in the shade of  the villa.   Oh these silly people who bake themselves.   I was so glad just to have some heat to my bones. 

Went and picked Beth up from school tonight as requested by her before I went away on holiday, big smiles and a lovely load of hugs.   Been requested to pick her up next week, mum is away next week and Beth asked if I could pick her up as its bad enough me not being there but worse as mum will be away too, so of course I said yes.  Anna was being reserved with her hugs tonight as she has a friend staying, so that was understandable.  

That's it for just now, I have a few things to do so hopefully I will be able to do a few posts.  
Thank you for calling in.

  9. Just saw Patricia's post where you getting ready for departure! So good to see from your post, that you've been on your fun trip, had a lovely time, with no sunburns, and safely back home again. You amaze me with the creativity you show in these projects that you do to order. Each tiny item just fits in so perfectly with the theme, and ends up looking wonderfully intricate & detailed! Glad to see you had a bit of time with your 'girls' again, and I'm sure they appreciate you even more now. Off to enjoy the photos I got a peek at, as I zipped in here. Happy wkend, and hope the weather is nice in your part of the world. TFS & Hugs
