Hello...hope you are having a lovely day....and Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there....in UK anyway, I know the dates are different in other countries :)
I have travelled up to my daughters today to spend the day with my little family and my parents came too....it has been lovely...lovely lunch and super strawberry and cream cake...and a couple of cheeky glasses of Fizz...nothing better :)
My daughter and the 3 munchkins :)
I've had some lovely gifts too...a little pretty pink plant and plant pot from the munchkins....which is sitting on the bathroom window ledge....
And a gorgeous hand painted (by my daughter) motto sign which will be hanging on a wall...once I've decided which one...I have pranced around the house this tea time trying to decide where it looks best :)
I'm so pleased that the crafty bug is rubbing off onto another generation :)
It has been mighty cold this week...which has made for some lovely frosty walks and very red and rosy cheeks! We drove through snow...rain and brilliant sunshine today so I know various parts of England have had very different weather!
It has been our Anniversary this week so I baked a Banana & Carrot Cake...I'm not really a lover of Carrot Cake but I thought this might be nice with the banana in...and it was...
the cream cheese frosting was gorgeous...like runny cheesecake :)
Again this week I have been spending a lot of time on Family Tree research....and I'm very happy to report....a break through! I have found my Granddad and his family!!!! It was amazing....one census just popped up and there they were...I could believe it! I thought I was imagining it as it was 11:30pm and I was so tired...but now I have addresses...dates and professions...he and his father were Publicans...which we had suspected....and I think I'm almost back another generation as well...so it has been a really good week on the search...I can't tell you how satisfying it has been...and a relief....I was becoming a little obsessed!
Not a lot of craftiness has occurred due to one thing and another...and my family tree search obsession...but I have joined another row of daily squares....
and I am determined to finish my stripes and square blanket this week...I have decided what my next crochet project is going to be...and the colours...and I'm itching to get started.... :)
Well I think its going to be a short and sweet diary entry this week....I don't seem to have been up to much :) I did find this on Pinterest or was it Facebook...it doesn't really matter....I thought it was a great idea for a present of wine/fizz and chocolates but presented in such a great and different way...
How brilliant is that! A wine and chocolate pineapple! Just a great idea :)
I have forgotten to show you my hyacinths from last week...look how they have grown and opened....
they fill the room with that heady scent...amazing :)
So that's it....I will leave you with this weeks vintage photo....
Were you an Angel Delight person or Instant Whip? Or maybe you liked both? I was definitely an Instant Whip fan...it was one of my favourite "after tea" pudding...it had to be strawberry flavour and I had sliced banana in it too...ooo the memories ha ha :)
