Super Saturday, Soggy Sunday and Windy Monday!

At long last the Doodly Birds flew their way up North into the gentle hands of Lynn .. I understand she’s really pleased with the result and couldn’t wait to have them put on show on her stall .


Lynn’s Doodly Birds Stall full of all her Doodly Goodies.


You can personally visit Lynn on one of many exhibition days or why not visit her “virtual 24 hr store online”! linked here… she has lots of goodies on offer at excellent prices.

As for me, I’m sitting on my idle hands at the moment making a few African flowers to pass the time away. I’ve been considering making a bag for my niece to take up to University with her.


And wondering if  we are ever going to get another chance to enjoy the good old outdoors again.. floods have effected many parts of the country again and the only comfort I get is sitting under my gazebo at night watching my lights and my bunting flapping in the wind.


So lets finish on a sweet note of muffins made with Belgian chocolate and love


Yummy… link here for recipe .. mixed, baked and eaten within half an hour!!!

Have a great rest of the week xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx helen xxxxxxxxxxxxx

  1. I hope you are away from the flooded areas in your part of Cardiff Helen 😉
    The Doodly Bird bunting is just fabulous!! 😀 I also love the bunting you have around your gazebo – very colourful 🙂 Also, from what I can see, you have a beautiful garden there full of colourful shrubs and trees 😉 You’re a wonderful baker Helen, those muffins look so lush! I’m not surprised they went quickly 😉
