Sunny Sunday

Happy Easter Everyone, I hope youve all had a choctastic day.
It's been lovely having a long weekend, I really needed it.
So far we have done lot's in the garden, Gav came home from work at 5pm on Thursday night and promply started making a new garden table, he was finished by 9pm!

 He has been on a mission since we came back from holiday & has gardened every night after work.
I have been pottering, planting veggies and weeding.
I did howeve decide to finish restoring my vintage deck chair today, It has taken a while to do, removing the old torn canvas, sanding it down, teak oiling twice and then today redoing the fabric panel today.
 I used the vintage sanderson fabric I found at the CB last summer, such a bargain £3 for the whole bolt, plenty left to make some seat cushions for the garden chairs.

This afternoon we have built a composter out of old pallets to take over from the plastic tardis that we had.
Thanks for all the Birthday wishes, I shall be baking again tomorrow, Gav has requested Banana muffins for work next week.
I hope you all have a wonderful short week & another long weekend.

Birthday & Birthday Swaps..........

Hello My Lovelies
Sorry it's been a while, I have lots to tell you.
I have been on the most marvelious holiday to Cornwall.
Had the big 30 Birthday & some lovely pressies.
So First things first.
Thanks to all the lovely Birthday Swappers who sent me lovely gifts.
I opened them today as I wanted to do them all together and had to pick some up from the Post Office yesterday, So Tadaaaaaaaaaa

Here are all the lovelies I received.
They are all beautiful & I felt very spoilt, thanks fellow swappers xxxxx.
I also want to show you what I got for my birthday, I decided that as I was going to finally become an adult, I should have a big grown up mixer to prove it. So all my family gave me money towards this beauty.

She is my new best friend and my first make was birthday Whoopie Pies for the office.
I also received the new Hummingbird Bakery book and the recipe was in it so why not try a Whoopie.....

 They were delicious and soo much fun to make.

Our holiday was amazing and I have loads of photos to show you but blogger is being random with photos, they will have to wait until another day.
So it's movie night tonight so I must dash.
Have a lovely Sunny week.
