Words on Wednesday – A Catch-Up!

Wednesday (3)

I feel like I haven’t done a catch-up post in ages, and thanks to not having internet for a while I haven’t…. but, I am back today to share with you what I have been up to for the past few weeks.

I gathered a few friends for another Crafternoon a few weekends ago and we had a really lovely time being taught cake decoration by my friend Jez.  We had a brilliant time and raised some funds for Mind, a mental health charity (you can read more about Mind here).  If you would like to donate, you can do so via this link to my JustGiving page.

There were 5 of us in total and we got to decorate cupcakes that had been baked by Jez with different coloured butter icing and piping bags with different nozzle attachments, we then got to add all manner of different embellishments to finish them off!  I was really pleased with how mine turned out even though I hadn’t really thought about design and just wanted to try all the things!  Lol!

I bought some sparkly gin that I enjoyed one evening, it was raspberry trifle flavoured but wasn’t sickly sweet and was lovely with tonic water!

I bought some flowers that were on clearance in my local Tesco, it was the anniversary of my Grandma’s passing so I wanted to take some flowers up to my Grandpa and her grave, I ended up buying a few bunches for myself too!  They had been marked up at £10 per bunch but on clearance, they were only £2.70 which I thought was crazy as the buds hadn’t fully opened or anything.  It took them nearly 2 full weeks to fully bloom.

The weather has been really crazy here, lots of storms, high winds, rain, hail, sleet and snow.  Luckily none of the snow has stuck but lots of places have been affected by really bad flooding.  Roxy and I have spent a lot of time snuggled up and staying in, away from the bad weather.  I did treat myself to some icecream one evening and we sat and watched a few films together, Roxy is an excellent inspector of empty icecream containers!img_7221

Aside from that, I have been working on a few projects that I might reveal soon!  I have a few different plans and ideas that I want to work out and see what happens first though!

What have you all been up to?  I’d love to hear any news you may have or anything you have been up to in the comments!!!

  1. Hi Suzi you have been busy, as I said before, I love butter icing and those cakes look so tasty and for such a good cause.
    Our lab Ruby was ill for over a week with a form of gastro interitis that is about nation wide and making dog vomit and have diorreha, the Vet said it can last from three to ten days. Ruby needed two visits to the Vets, two injections and finally antibiotics which did the trick.
    We also had to travel to Barnstaple in Devon for the funeral of a dear friend…that day we had, rain , hail, snow and finally sun!
    Everything else has been the norm ..so that’s my last couple of weeks.
    I must say I could do with a glass of that gin and tonic it looks amazing 💜💜💜

    1. Hope ruby is on the mend now! So sorry to hear of the loss of your friend, sending lots of hugs! I spent lots of summer days in Barnstaple when I was younger, such a lovely place! It’s been raining loads here today, and it’s really cold too xxxx
