Let them eat cake

Yesterday I made a cake with wee one.

I have had one small slice!

This is how much cake is left today.

Do you think I should make cakes more or less often?
And yes it is a bit of a whacky Alice in Wonderlandesque coloured cake. Dusty pink sponge and violet buttercream icing. Well why not? :D

Man it's getting chilly. I think this winter is going to be a long one. The smalls, well mostly big one to be fair, have been asking when the heating is going on and I've told them not until we get back from our holiday at the end of October. Not a popular answer. LOL

Right I have some lovely pictures of the lovely goodies I recieved from a certain lovely lady called Em over at Garden Peas and Fleas.

I was feeling a bit poorly sick when it arrived so it was a proper little pick me up opening it all up in my sick bed.

There is lots and lots of pictures as Em spoilt me - thank you so much Em.

The box is a pretty colour.

Now what can be in here?

Ooooh pretty paper. :)

I'm loving this card, I'm going to look for a frame so I can put it up on my kitchen wall.

This brooch is so pretty. I'm guessing you made it Em - clever girl. ;)

This wee tin is too cute and perfect if you remember the tile I bought from my local charity shop a while back.

And it's full of buttons. I LOVE buttons!

Gorgeous smelling candles that I'm saving for the right winter's evening. ;)

A cute wee jug which has pride of place on my kitchen dresser.

Fabulous spotty material.

How fab is this wee chalk board?

A bookmark which is great as even though I have several I always end up losing them and using a bit of paper. This one will NOT get lost. It is a bookmark isn't it Em?

The whole glorious shebang.

Thank you soooo much Em and everyone else please pop over to her blog and say hello and see her fantabulous (yes that is a word) crochet skills.

I am still here

It's been a quiet over here at Ratbagville, well the blog anyway, lately.
I've had a few health issues since I got back from my Wales trip, the wonderful old gall bladder has been kicking off big time and I seem to be falling for just about every bug going.

Thank you all for your comments on my timed posts while I was away.

Big one did brilliantly in her exams - I am so proud of her but I have been banned from speaking about it anymore. Apparently I was too proud and telling too many people, so I'll just whisper that she got top marks in everything and leave it at that. ;)

What with coming home to a location I really don't want to be anymore and then getting poorly I've hit a bit of a wall of the poor me variety. But bear with me and normal service will be back on a screen near you soon. Oh and I have a box of lovely things to share with you all that I won from Em on her giveaway
Thank you so much Em, it was lovely sat in bed feeling like it was my birthday. xxx
