That Was The Week That Was

You know how some weeks seem a bit slow and others pack in soooo much that you really don't know how it actually all fitted? Well this has been one of those weeks...
I have baked (nothing new there I hear you shout)...
 140 shortbread foxes.
 1 Very large chocolate cake.
 1 Coconut cake that had better get out of here before I eat it. It smells too good.
 120 mini cup cakes in silver and purple (Birthday cake).

 6 Christmas Puddings wrapped and ready to go.
 6 small Christmas cakes also ready for dispatch.

I have shopped and bought 1 suit and 1 pair of trousers that not only fit D. (not easy when he's got a 28 inch waist and 34 inch legs and is VERY fussy).

I have been thrilled and excited about the same D getting an interview at Cambridge and about me passing my first practical exam, only 3 left to go now.

The painter has arrived.
The rug is chosen and ordered.
The chair is sitting in the shop ready for delivery.

The fire guard and companion set are sitting beside me as I write and the basket is on it's way.

Took this picture and just couldn't resist... choices choices....

have a good week..xx


  1. You make me tired just thinking about what you have accomplished. Wow love that chair, and if anyone deserves a swanky new Kitchen Aid mixer it's you.

  2. ooh I feel like singing..." and a Partridge in a Pear tree " to your list !

    My your cakes look wonderful - so pretty. I have a friend who keeps saying, " Busy Busy Busy ! " You certianly are !

  3. All sounds very exhausting but FUN. Good Luck to D for his interview; punting on the Cam sounds like a potential new pastime!
