Well, last weekend we had our little boy's 9th Birthday party, which was very enjoyable, lots of friends came round for games, rounders, football and penalty shoot outs, followed by a Birthday tea.
I had been looking on a friend's blog and was inspired by her beautiful hand-made cakes, so thought I would have a go myself. I have always liked baking and, with a little advice from friends and a lot of gusto, I proceeded to create a Chocolate Chocolate Cake. What child wouldn't like that!
A couple of days before though I had a silly accident where I sprained my ankle - ouch! Thought I would have been laid up for said party, but thankfully after a visit to A & E and x-ray, it started to feel a little bit better, so party went off as planned. But as I was walking to school yesterday, my ankle gave way and I ended up on the deck AGAIN with a ripped pair of jeans, blood pouring down my leg and feeling very silly. Fortunately a lovely off-duty fireman was nearby and came to my rescue, escorted me home and tended to my wound! Thanks lovely fireman x
My boy hoovering after my second fall (doing it for £1 and then said "is it £2 if I do two rooms!)
I am now nursing a sprained ankle and cut knee, but spirits are still high and my love of crafting is still as strong as ever - now I can sit and crochet with a good excuse!
