and now for "the cake" .. .. .. how could I not share it!!!
Don't split your sides laughing.
We had a lovely evening celebrating our friend's birthday and then the cake made its appearance.
This is what everyone saw ............
The emblem is of his fav football team - perhaps if it had been a bit bigger it might have turned out better.
The birthday boy was well pleased (and very polite) and his wife explained how I had helped with the decoration as she couldn't manage with her poorly wrist.
I then instantly apologised and said how sorry I was that it wasn't a very good job but the birthday boy made me feel so much better because he said that at the end of the day it doesn't really matter what it looks like .. .. it is the love and thought that has gone into it. The love his wife had put into making the cake in the first place and the love I had put into icing it. (Isn't he lovely).
All the good icing bits - my friend had managed to do prior to me making my mark with all the black bits. Don't blow the picture up any bigger .. .. it only looks worse LOL!!! It looks like he is 20 not 70!!!
Then finally .. .. good news!!!
My lappy has come home. Yay!!!
They have put me a new hard drive in and a new battery .. .. all under the warranty that only has another month left on it .. .. yippee .. .. it feels like Christmas. So my lovely hubby is now installing and up-dating everything for me so hopefully I will be back up and running properly by tomorrow evening.
OK dry your eyes now and stop laughing .. .. you have other blogs to go and visit!! LOL!!
Take care everyone. See you tomorrow.
