I had a lovely Birthday! Thank you to everyone who sent birthday wishes!
I got some wonderful gifts from people. From Mum and Dad I got three pairs of gorgeous earrings. I'm such an earring fiend. I also got a clear lip gloss and eyeshadow/blusher combipen, a gorgeous bunny USB flash drive thing (only you have to pull his head off to use him), a bunny air freshener, some chocolate raisins and cranberries and a blue jumper with 'The Angels have the phone box..." embroidered on it (Embroidery done by my brother's company Discofish Designs
I also got £10 from my Nan, and £10 from Jean and Ray, and a box of Malteasers and a spa bath set from Julie. OH and a lovely story from Monkie :)
Mum made me a lovely courgette and carrot cake with pink icing and sprinkles. It tastes so good.
Only downside to the day was having to work. Thursdays are always the worse because it's the night I buff the Hall floor.
In other news, I currently obsessed with Prisoner: Cell Block H. It's one of those things that was always around when I was a kid and wheneer I watched a movie we'd taped off TV there was nearly always an episode of PCBH after it. And now, Dad and I are doing a rewatch all the way through. We're on episode 19 so far out of 690+ The acting is a bit wooden and the quality is a bit naff but I love it. And I'm totally in love with Bea Smith!
Watching PCBH also made me reread UGH so now my Sen muse is awake... Damn.
I've started work on my brother's wedding cake. He and Dawn are getting married in November and so far I have the first tier baked. I still need to bake the second tier. Then they need pricking and brushing with brandy at least once a week until late October, then marzipaned, then a few days after the marzipan has settled they need icing and decorating. I'm pretty confident the cakes will be okay because it's the same recipe I use every Christmas. I'm just a little worried about getting the icing smooth - at least with a Christmas cake you can disguise any bumps as 'snow'.
I'm worried about my uncle Ray. He's been ill for a while now and I don't know all the details but there are some polyps and lumps in his bowel and the lumps are cancerous. They want to try and remove them but they're worried about bleeding because of his blood tablets. They're going to try and remove them in an op soon and if that doesn't work he may have to have a full colostomy and stoma. Sigh. I guess we'll just have to wait and see how things go...
I really need to update more. I always say so and never do. I miss you all and really should make more of an effort to post ♥
