I can't believe it's two years since the light of my life came into the world! My Granddaughter Jessica has brought so much joy and yesterday was her second birthday. It was a beautiful day for an outdoor party, so we walked down to the little hall where she attends Music Bugs a sweet class for budding musicians, they had their party food inside and then went outside for a session of Music Bugs and to run around and play My son did a barbeque for the biggies (he is the King of barbeques) and a great time was had by all. Jessica is the most wonderfully affectionate little love bug, when it was time to go she ran up to me put her arms around my neck then took my face in her little hands and gave me a smacker on the lips! I took loads of photos with my swanky new camera that my brother bought me a new Nikon Cool Pix so here are a few from yesterday. There is a saying that I love (and you know how much I love jewellery).........The most precious jewels you will ever wear around your neck are the arms of your Grandchildren, sums it up!

Good friends are as rare as hare's teeth, those special friends who go that extra mile to cheer you when the going get's tough, I am so lucky to have a wonderful friend who lives thousands of miles away in the US but even those miles don't stop her being the most thoughtful, caring and special friend anyone could want. The last few weeks have been pretty tough, members of my family with a hip replacement, an op for a hernia and I have had some eye trouble which thankfully is not as serious as it was first thought. So over a couple of weeks beautiful, thoughtful gifts have been arriving, first a gorgeous Mug and then some seriously delicious tea for Sophie then the most beautiful cup and saucer and Vanilla Orchid tea for me, then our favourite delicious Macarons and today a wonderful book A Thousand Days in Venice. Thank you from the bottom of my heart dearest Paulette, not only a wonderful friend but one with the most exquisite taste!! You can see what wonderful taste she has by having a look at her stunning creations at www.papernosh.com I took a few pics of the lovely goodies we recieved.
