Its been a while.

Its been a while since i have posted anything,as you will see with the pictures this little thug has kept me busy,this is Rex he is the latest addition to the family he came to live with me as a friend's daughter bought him then became ill and could not keep him,my other dogs get on well with him,its just taking a bit longer to train him as he very willfull,but if you take a dog on you have to put all the hard work to make it work.Germand shepherds take longer to train you seem to take 1 step forward and 2 back,he is a devil for the cats he loves to chase them,he has been scratched and told off so many times ,we will get there one day with him it just takes time, i do love him to bits he acts just like a naughty child. I had to include these pictures of my bargain flowers i bought from tescos they were 50p for 6 bunches i was so pleased,i love flowers they lasted for 2 weeks so that was a great bargain.

There has been lots of celebrations this summer,it was my friends birthday,the cake was made by her niece, she bought the cake tin from Lakeland.Then its was Ruby's 3rd burthday,this is Ruby with her big sister,so that was another party to go to and more cake and tea.

Of course a summer wedding to attend,the bride and friends did a lot of work making lots of little gifts for the table and favours for the guests,Bev had a heart theme for the wedding,there were heart tea lights,home made toffee hearts in little bags,the bride and bridemaids had little heart diamond slides in their hair and even little diamond hearts in her bouquet.The sun shone, every thing went to plan it was a great day.

The wedding cake heart shaped of course even had her 2 cats on the cake Bev loves her kitties so felt they had to be included.

And of course my blog would not be complete with out a picture of my handsome grandson,he will be 3 on the 1st of October he goes to school nursery after October,where does the time go to.So another party to go to.Well thats all my news for now hopefully i will not be a way for so long.I have been reading everyones blogs and picking up on all tips on books to read and cakes and meals to cook.Take Care~Kate~

Happy New Year.

Happy New Year to you all in blogland,i have been a bad blogger but hopefully this year i will be good and post at least once a week.I know i am late with my christmas pictures but here are a few of some of my favourite christmas goodies,this santa and reindeer were from Au Natural a few years ago for 50p each and the sledge was from the Pier the card came from the states.

This is a picture taken nearly 3 weeks ago of my old collie Rollo as you can see she is not to happy bless her the other dogs were rolling about out of shot and enjoying themselves.

This is Tykee who is always up high somewhere she shouldn't be next to my Heartwoodcreek nativity scene i love heartwood creek they make lots of different santas snowmen and animals even walt disney items,i will post pictures later of my collection,the pictures are folk art christmas cards.

This picture was taken the Tuesday before christmas,my daughter-in-law got stuck in a bad traffic jam because of the snow after taking my son to work so she popped in for breakfast and stopped with me for a couple of hours until the snow stopped and its been like this ever since, i am managing to get out with my sons trusty escort and it holds the roads really well.

This was after it had stopped snowing as you can see there was a lot,then the next few days it became so icy it was lethal to walk on,but we have made it so far with no injuries.Thats all for now but i will post a few pictures of my christmas presents.I also have been having computer problems i.e my last one crashing then changing to windows vista and my service providor driving me and my daughter-in-law mad with instructions,but i am up and running and finding my way with the laptop.Hope everyone in blogland is keeping safe with the snow .~Take Care Kate~
