We are having a mad time of it this week and there seems to be no let up. I have been full on at my return to teaching course in Leeds and at my placement school. Today has been my first at home day. So what have I been up to? Well a dear friend is unwell and celebrating her birthday tomorrow so I made a few of these
  cakes and candles      cupcake
All pink and girly. Hope she likes them. I have also made this small token to house a lip balm. As always from ravelry and for free no less. I urge my hooky chums to have a go as they make in seconds and are useful as they can be made to attach to a key ring. Here is the link

The DH is also birthdaying on Saturday and I have been promised a closed kitchen with lots of eating out. Can’t wait. I will let you know how it goes. Thomas is off tomorrow on a training day (I know he only got back on Monday) so we are off getting secret things.
I may well join you briefly tomorrow as its St Georges day and we like to get flaggy here in Lou land. Can I leave you with this? Not a summer but the hope of one.
