My first proper cake!

It's Mr Yappy Dog's birthday today and I made a coffee/walnut cake - this is a major achievement as my cakes never ever rise - until this one!!!! and it tastes ok as well.

 I just must say some thankyous while I am here too - there have been random acts of kindness

Yesterday I received this wonderful smelling box of delicious dried orange, apple, berries and cinnamon sticks which was sent by Crafty Helen just because she felt like it - such a lovely surprise, it's to decorate the wreath I am making for Christmas. Thankyou so much Helen- I am so pleased with them, xxx

Nana Go Go some time ago sent me a fabulous dress very like the one in Brighton she knows I frequently admire - I didn't take a pic but it is like this in black and orange with a full black net skirt... it didn't fit me - but it did fit my friend's daughter and so has gone to a very happy home where it is loved and wanted. Nana wanted to do a random kindness act and she certainly did - but I think I must say a proper thankyou to you Nana. xxx

Off to work again and a round robin to drop some goodies for the collection I am doing for our soldiers in Afghanistan, I now have several boxes and carrier bags of toiletries and sweets/chocs to go in shoeboxes for going out to Afghanistan for Christmas and am taking them to our local co-ordinator.  There will be a lot more on Sunday so it's busy busy.

Will catch up at the weekend. xxx
