cake and presents



we had a lovely weekend eating lots of J's birthday cake, this one with jelly tots on didn't last very long at all, so we had to make another one for our picnic tea at Temple Newsam - which is a lovely place, we wandered round the gardens, looked at all the farm animals, and had a cream tea with friends, but I forgot the camera........



cake no. 2 was a marble cake as we couldn't agree on another chocolate or a plain sponge..

and then although it wasn't MY birthday I got the most fantastic parcel from Zia koko, who had a giveaway on her blog, and she sent me this beautiful bag,



and inside was the most lovely fabric,



thankyou so much !
