Well, what did you all think of the Olympics Opening Ceremony?? I thought it was amazing and indeed reflected the spirit of our amazing country It’s times like this that I do appreciate where I live and how this fair land has made me very much the person I am today.. thanks to my parents floating over from Greece in the early sixties.
However, other than trying to watch the games, I have been VERY busy, not only trying to set up my new house and garden into a home and grotto for Alex but also looking after friends and family’s homes whilst they’ve been away..
So today I AM RESTING!!
The patio has been cleaned, the pool inflated, Alex re baptised and my darling Toy boy Richard yet another year older.
( I’m six months older than him heheheh)
As you can see, I’ve edged the bunting for Doodly Birds and sewed in all the pesky ends in the sunshine, making the most of the good light.. don’t they look amazing!
Again in between the Olympic fencing bouts I’ve also cut out the letters, ready to iron on to the pendants..
This bunting is going to be ultra eye catching I feel!
But but my concentration is a little lax today with Alex making more demands of my time than ever.. so I’ll continue tomorrow with the next stage whilst he’s out with respite.
Birthday parties and catering have been fun though with a little added mix of midnight fun in the garden thanks to my passion for all solar powered lights that glow. It’s like Christmas every night!
Alex thinks it wonderful and just stands in the garden watching the lights flicker in the breeze.. wind – chimes included.
He loves to have his senses stimulated with lights, touch and indeed sound.. don’t we all!
Now lets talk cooking.. how many of you remember Angel Delight??? Ok, you can put your hands down now as I introduce you to a new product. Angel Delight Ice Cream!!! .. we love as I add my own signature to the basic mix.. like extra choocy pieces, or honey comb or perhaps a drop of Irish Crème liqueur. It’s cheap,easy and fun to make with the kids.
Why not make a lovely pear, stilton and walnut quiche for a summer supper too…. find the link here
I added walnuts instead of the almonds but its your call.
Have fun over the weekend… I’ve got lots more to tell you about next week too, regarding a little knitting group I joined on Wednesday.
Sending you Olympic sized hugs and lots more xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
