Yummy Things!


I bet that caught your attention! Have a look at the yummy Chocolate Brulee tarts that Marion made. Of course I had to bite into one, just for the right effect for the photo......mmmm I think that naughty Christina part of me must have eaten the rest of it when I wasn't looking.

Something else yummy - or so I think - is my no. 1 son doing some embroidery. It is the first time he has tried and he stitched the Olympic flag to go on top of his project. Don't you think he has done a good job for his first attempt? Of course sitting in MY stitching chair would have helped!
Have a great weekend - we collect our new puppy today - "Spike", so there is much excitement here.

Great job on your son's stitching, specially since it is your first attempt. My son keeps wanting me to show him and then he thinks he knows it all and wants to do it his way lets just say it is extreme prim to the max lol. I am not even going to look at those yummy deserts thought.
