Christmas Cakes!

Hi hope you enjoyed my last post.
 I had a blast writing it, it brought back all those wonderful memories of happy family times. I cherish them hugely, nothing is more important than family and they should always know how special they are. 
One of my favourite things about Christmas is being able to kick back and spend lazy days together enjoying the little things that make us happy. 
Long lunches, chilly walks, hot chocolates and pyjamas, games and late night chats putting the world to rights and dreaming dreams together. 
Lovely, can't wait.
Anyway lets talk cake shall we.
I love Christmas cake and always make mine in October half term to give it plenty of time to mature.
And I love decorating my Christmas cake. 
Deciding what artistic theme I'll be having and generally going to town on the festive design.
Here is a selection of some of them.
  The problem is with everything building up before the Big Day it often gets left to the last minute...........the very last minute. Then one year disaster struck, flu and TIME RAN OUT!!!!
Oh No!
 Everything came to a halt. 
This is where one of our favourite Christmas traditions was born.
 "Don't worry Mum" said the lovely children, "We'll decorate the cake, you'll love it!" 
And so they did, and I did! 

So here are some of my favourite creations, they are.............not ummmm............traditional! 
It's not the first time they've been on these pages but they make me laugh so much I just needed to share them again.
But I think you'll agree they have their own charm LOL!

So now we don't worry about RUNNING OUT OF TIME or FLU or anything, the in house artists have got it covered. Who knows what we'll get this year. 
We wait with bated breath.
Hope you have enjoyed my little snapshot of Christmas here in Baffins.
I'm off to feed my cake.
See you soon


  1. I fed my cake yesterday, but I haven't given any thought as to the decoration yet - but I have some ideas now! Or perhaps you can send your decorating crew round when they have finished with your cake, they do a great job!! xx

    1. They certainly do, I do have to pay them though, with copious amouts of food and drink LOL!

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer

Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

Five Photo Friday

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.

I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!

Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥
Finlay's birthday cake. Just so you all know, I'm never making a Thomas cake again, fiendishly tricky!

 We also spent some time checking out Storm Brian. Very stunning he was too.

That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! Love ♥Sue♥
