That Was A Weekend That Was!!!

I think it's going to take me a week to catch my breath after the busy weekend we've had with our Miss Doodle.
We have had a lot of fun despite my plans being scuppered by the resident drivers. Things were just done differently but Ruby still had a great time including helping to make these.......


Strawberry cupcakes with strawberry frosting and tons of glitter.
The chocolate decorations are little Troll biscuits in the shapes of the characters.
We also had glitter jelly which we had found in the supermarket but trust me when I say....that is where it should have stayed. Ruby loved it but I shall not be partaking of that again....anytime let alone anytime soon....lol.

Today we met DS and the gorgeous Marlowe at the pub for lunch and to hand Ruby back. It's so much easier to do it on neutral ground as she does get a bit fractious when it's time to go home....not because she doesn't want to go home....I just think she doesn't want the fun to end and go back to the Sunday routine of bath, hairwash, reading practice and homework.
Never mind....over the next few weeks we will be planning what we are going to do when she comes to stay for the week at the end of August.

I am whacked...lol....so all I will be fit for now for the rest of the day is reading the papers and schlomping on the sofa to watch The Loch later on.

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend too.

    1. I've not done a scrap of housework while Doodle has been here so I'll have to make up for that today and dinner tonight will be as easy as I can make it-x-

  4. Sounds like a fun weekend, those cakes really do look good but despite never tasting it I am not fancying glitter jelly.

  5. The cakes look lovely Sheila. It's nice when little ones enjoy baking isn't it. Good fun while learning some good skills.

    Aww bless Ruby. If I spent a weekend at yours being spoilt rotten I probably wouldn't want to go home either and especially not to do homework. In my opinion it should be banned until High School. xx
