A lot of frustration! With an international move coming up just after Christmas, I seem to be continually chasing my tail. I have had 1 whole week of no sewing and there are 4 or 5 things on my sewing table, which I know just need 1 or 2 days each to be "done done".

However, not all is lost. I did manage to make a cake for my sons' birthday and have far too many 6 and 7 year olds in my house for a party. Just 30 mins after the party ended, the sky dumped an inch or so of snow all over the place.

Here is the cake. The gold and silver balls on the cake, the kids thought were real, so they were stealing them to take home - vbg........

And, here is our back garden at 6:00pm. Completely dark and full of snow.......

Time for some strong coffee and to face the rest of the day. :)

Oh wow!! I can't believe DS1 is seven. *sniff*

That's so cute the kids were pinching the balls off the cake. Nice cake. Mmmm.. cake.. have been trying to be good.

I heard it snowed in Koln. My DH's MIL chats on the net with friends in Koln every day. :)

Can't wait to see you!!

Yep, he sure is. The cake thing was really funny - it was like treasure!

The snow has melted now and everything is just wet. I started making the cookie bag last night. I think it will be really pretty. Just need to assemble all the bits together........
