The Tobacco Lords and someone’s birthday

flowers 2

What a gorgeous day it’s turned out. The sun is out and it’s not too cold outside. It’s nice to have some good weather for a change. Although hubby and I did have a good weekend weather wise last weekend. Sigh…seems like a long time ago.

So how have you been? How’s your week been? Mine has been pretty busy so it’s nice to have five minutes to sit down and do this blog post…with some colourful images of flowers. I put them in because they are so cheerful.

I haven’t been doing a lot since I last posted. Mainly working and looking after the kids. However, I am back into writing…hooray!! And I’m reading The Tobacco Lords by Margaret Thomson Davis. It’s one of my mum’s favourite books, so I’ve borrowed the copy I bought her ages ago. I’m enjoying it. It’s one of those books you can’t put down.

Just want to do a quick shout out to my stepson whose birthday it is on Saturday. Happy birthday J!! Ooh that reminds me, I must go and put on my muffins. I always make him and his sister cake for their birthdays…it’s kind of my wee tradition. I don’t see that them often – they are all grown up – so it’s nice to do.

Got another cake to make next week, this time for my girl who turns ten. Can’t believe she’s that age already. One minute she’s this tiny wee baby with impressive reflux (she was a puker!) and now she’s up to my shoulders with the opinions and attitude of a 20-year-old. Sigh. Life really does pass by too quickly!

Anyway, I don’t have a lot else┬áto report this week (I know – I’m a boring fart!), and I have those muffins to make, so I will say adieu just now. Til next time!
