Counting The Good Things

There have been some very sad, heart breaking events in the past week or so. Things I am not able to talk about here because they concern others. Although I have cried, life with small people has to carry on in as normal a fashion as we are able.

I am trying to count the good things.

Fresh baked scones in my new cake stand;

A new wall, although the delight was not in having a wall but watching my big and littlest man 'work';

Finding pretty mosaics when stuck in Oldham waiting for Simon on a work mission;

And baking chocolate cake for our friend's 12th birthday, happy birthday Lily;

Hope things improve for you soon, children can be a great distraction when times are difficult.

Your cake stand is gorgeous especially piled with yummy home baked scones.

I'm sorry to hear you are having sad times. You have your gorgeous family to keep you sane . I cant believe how grown up your baby looks. It doesn't seem possible.
Its lovely to hear from you..I know you appreciate the cost involved in making things of your own.
