An old fashioned jolly was needed this weekend, so we planned a family birthday tea party, just without the birthday.
We had balloons, played pass the parcel, bingo with prizes and pin the tail on the donkey. It was a tasty tea - my favourite cheese and pineapple on sticks washed down with dolly mixtures. I love party teas and how cakes and sandwiches can all be eaten at the same time. I failed miserably to get the rabbit jelly out whole. It just plopped in a mess on the plate. Little Bun named it roadkill jelly, it tasted good all the same.
Now I'm slightly more bendy, today had to be a catch up on jobs that needed bendiness. I banished those grey hairs and cleaned out the hens and rabbits who were desperate for fresh straw and cuddles.
This evenings treat (apart from a very lovely Rufus Sewell in Zen and a Creme Egg) has been a flick through The Gentle Art of Quiltmaking by Jane Brocket. I'd not found a quilt book that worked for me before I got this. I really needed (or was it just wanted) a quilt book so I could work out how to do it all properly. Not just carry on in my usual get in there and have a go way. I've already picked up quite a few good tips and have plans a buzzing to cover our beds with glorious things.
Now talking of bed I think that's where I should be if I'm to keep my promise not to oversleep for a change. I really am not an early morning girl.
