Hello I thought I should put something....anything on here before I give up all together, I found this I made a while back and never bothered blogging, so here it is. 

Crafters companion EF some washie tape and a metal thingy bob for the sentiment which was a set from Craft Stash a couple of TH word die cut from washie tape  and a chippie balloon which has been far to long in a box, ribbon from stash.


About a week or so ago we had a baking day again, this time I made this gorgeous Banoffee pie/cake whatever you want to call it, it was for the kids as they love it, I am not the biggest fan but thats ok, guess who forgot to take a picture, the only one I managed was when it was in the fridge and I snapped it and sent it to my son to say, hey, look what mamma made, haha, but on the up side it was yummy and I have the recipe also.
Sorry about the fridge but you get the gist.
Here is the extra easy recipe

Hope you can read this ok, if you roll over it should enlarge.
Thats it for today, we are having a busy weekend here, its my most precious and only granddaughters 18th birthday on monday, but the celebrations began last night with a wonderful get together at my daughters house, the food was wonderful and the family and little ones had so much fun, Mia is very much a home body, which will make going to uni a hard 'to do' for her, but she is also looking to her future, she truly is the sweetest and I was blessed the day she came into our lives really. I have made something for her and will show it next week, until then have a lovely weekend my

oh what a lovely tag and yummy did you not save me abit. Mia will blossom when she goes to uni I was the same with jake but considering the year he has had I think he has done ok. saying that we cant seem to find out when he is coming home. Mia has had a good start learning from her Nan she will be fine and not that far away.
