Tea, Cake and lots of goodies :)

Hi every one :) hope this finds you all well and keeping warm ... lots of you are experiencing lots of the white stuff and we at the mouse house are expecting some too, even thought there is signs of spring arriving .... brrrrr .... any hoooo ... on to the good stuff ... cuppas and cake and not just the sponge kind either .... my lovely DD 2 made me a sweet cake .... how cool was that ... so pull up a chair grab your brew and a bit of cake or some sweeties and enjoy your visit ....
I have had a wonderful few birthday "days "..lol  I was taken out on Sunday for an early birthday meal to a very nice "posh " Italian restaurant by DH , and then on Tuesday my actual day I was up at the crack of dawn opening my  wee packages that have been arriving at the mouse house .... ooooing and aaaahhhing  at all the lovely cards and presents I have been given .... and there is some more on the way too ......I have bobbed the names up under the photos and links where they have a blog as it was soooo much easier..lol and I just love them all... thank you once again every one :)
Unfortunately I had to go to work but I did have a good day and got some lovely gifts from  work too :) and when I had finished DH took me to Meadowhall  and treated me to another lovely meal and bought me a gorgeous Swaroski  crystal necklace and a Cath Kidson handbag with matching purse how lucky am I :)
Talking of lucky I picked the winner of my celebration gift certificate but you will have to wait a wee while longer to find out heheheh .....
This last week I have been concentrating on Curly Q and am onto the last leg and can see the finishing line woooo hoooo ... and  drum roll please ♫♫♫♫♫ I have been doing some crochet... I have not done any in *Cough Cough* years and wanted to see if I could managed to do some .... soo with a wee bit of help from my friends I got started and you can see how well I have got on :)
Soooo do you want to see the photos ?????  I managed to remember to take a photo of the fabric stash from Grace and Favour from the other week ....
