My Happy Little Girl!!

Our little tea party with Ruby last night was just such a special couple of hours.
Tea was very simple....just her favourite sandwiches with some carrot sticks and crisps but all laid on the table in pretty dishes.
A surprise sundae of mint chocolate ice cream with Mars bar sauce and squirty cream followed by a beautiful pink sparkly birthday cake with candles.....I was forgiven for fibbing about the tomato soup....lol.
She was so thrilled with her gifts. Besides the bed I had bought an outfit with pyjamas, slippers and a teddy bear and another one of a onesie. Then there was the new doll to add to the collection.......

 This is Ava......and I so want that hair.

Aunty DD had bought her some items from another favourite collection called Top Model.....books containing body shapes and stickers for you to create outfits.
So all in all a very successful time and one very happy little girl.

Andy has okay'ed the price for the conversion to oil and the plumber will be here next Monday to measure up and hopefully the outside work will start by the end of the week or the following week so I am glad the little bit of snow we got last night didn't amount to anything as we now have a piece of ground we need to level, a base to lay and a shed to empty and move from it's current position onto the new base to make way for the oil tank.
I must admit that I hadn't expected things to move so quickly so it may be a little hectic here this weekend.

I'm just about to put some mince and onions on to cook for a cottage pie for our evening meal. It's pretty cold this morning so a good old fashioned rib sticker should go down well today.
After that I will be looking at my fabric stash for the tiny quilts and will maybe make a start on those.

Hope you are all keeping warm today.

  2. It must be lovely to make things for someone who really appreciates them. I am currently making some teatowel/potholders with my voluntary class. One of the ladies went to Canada on holiday and brought back a sample so I am figuring how to do it from upcycled materials and the ladies will bring their own towel. Think it may snow here soon but fingers crossed for not.Catriona

    1. Even though she is only seven Ruby does really appreciate hand made things.
      The teatowel potholders sound very interesting.
      We've just had a little smattering of the tiniest snowflakes I have ever seen so I don't think we'll be getting snowed in.

    1. I hope I am making good memories for her. That would mean a lot to me.
      It's really raw here today.
      I made a big pot of Garbage Broth the other day. Sounds awful but it's just all the leftover veg with a good glug of stock. My pair nearly took the bottom out of the pan. They took it for pack up at work and had it for lunches here. I prefer leek and Potato though-x-

  5. Precious memories for you all, it doesn't get better than that. Thrilled to hear about the oil, they are certainly not hanging about.

  6. Bet Ruby was tickled pink with her surprise tea and presents.

    Glad the work will be started sooner rather than later, nothing worse then deciding you're doing something then having to hang around waiting for it to happen. xx
