Time Off

Barry and I are staying with my Mum this week. The intention is to find her an outfit to wear to our wedding. The weather here has been so wet and windy that going from shop to shop has been a nightmare. We did manage to spend some time in a lovely kitchen equipment shop mind you. I got one of those Madeleine cake tins, it's not a tin though, it's that non-stick rubber stuff. I have hankered after one of those for ages. I love the little cakes sandwiched together with butter cream and raspberry jam, yum!

This evening, we are going out for a meal with Mum, my brother, his wife and their daughter. Should be a good evening. The restaurant knows Matt, he has made them a website. Part of the reason for going is so that Matt can take some photos of some food prepared at the restaurant to put on the website.

Tomorrow, we are all going up to Matt's place and he is going to cook us a steak on his barbecue, so we are being spoilt rotten, Barry is going to make some of James Martin's marshmallows I think, well, he bought a sugar thermometer yesterday so I guess that is his intention...

It's great to get away from the madness of the wedding preparations and recharge the batteries. I think that most things are organised now, the money is dripping out of our fingers at an alarming rate but what the heck, this is a very special occasion!

I'll leave you with this darling shot of Sully with his Mum....apparently, at just three months old, Sullivan is now moving around whilst lying on his back by pushing himself with his feet...ooohoh...here comes trouble!! Couldn't you just snuggle him up?Hope you all have a lovely weekend, I just know this little break will fly by....we'll soon be back home where my diary is full of appointments right up to 18th of April and I am loving every minute of it!

Oh and I just wanted to wish my friend Alice from Socktopus all the very best wishes as she is departing for Canada today where she is going to get married! Hope you remember to keep your knitting handy Alice!

Sullivan is changing so much, this morning I asked him for a kiss, he opened his mouth put it near mine and the smiled when I kissed him!
