Happy Birthday Sandy

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted, we have been away, no crafting has been done and for the most part I've had no Internet. Our daughter Emma was offered a job in the country, with three weeks notice and Easter in the middle! We went down to Mt Gambier for four days to look for a house to rent - most agents didn't return our calls and none that we talked to and said we were coming down mentioned that they don't work weekends! So we came home without a house - on Thursday afternoon an agent rang and said a house she had for sale had just come off the market and was now for rent - there were lots of photos so Emma took a punt and signed up for it. We left for the Flinders Ranges the next morning for a few days - leaving Emma to pack her stuff, we arrived home Tuesday night, spent Wednesday buying furniture, fridge, washer etc, hired a truck and left Thursday morning for Mt Gambier, we got her moved in, unpacked and left Sunday to return the truck - on the way home we had a tyre blow out so that added another two hours to the trip home - we were both exhausted after that - luckily my mum had tea waiting for us!

Still no craft, but as today is Sandy's birthday we went out for lunch and visited a couple of craft shops - a real hardship! Sandy has been very busy card making so check out her blog here and wish her a happy birthday while your there.

Instead of a card, I'm sharing a photo of the cake we had while we were out to celebrate Sandy's birthday. I'm also looking forward to catching up with Shirley for some card making this weekend - it seems ages since I've seen her.

Chocolate Mocha Cake from Endue - yummy ( sorry about the reflection but it was behind glass).

Just happy to read that you have a safe place for Emma to live while working in SE of our state. Great that you were able to celebrate with Sandy and that cake looks wickedly delish .
See you Sunday ..
