Singing In The Rain!

 I want to get as thin as my first husband's promises 
- Texas Guinan
Hi all πŸ‘
Since the last update...
Lots have happened...
I only had to write 3 more weeks of blog posts and then I can publish 4 months of blog! 
We celebrated our 12th Wedding Anniversary last month πŸ’• 
Then I had the bad news next day.
My lovely friend of 30 years had passed away :'(
I hadn't cried so much since my dad passed away three years ago.
I had the afternoon off from my lollipop job to attend her funeral.
It was a lovely service.
It has rained quite a bit since the funeral.
I put it down to me singing a lot more than usual.
Some of the parents said I should hum more...
There was a Macmilliam Coffee Morning in aid of my friend. I made two cakes for the cake competition.
 Pigs in Mud↓↓
 Rainbows and Unicorns↓↓
(6 colours and flavoured)
I put them into the cake competition.
There were 9 entries altogether.
After judging by the WI.
I won First Prize for Pigs in Mud.
I was in shock in winning, I was expecting the wooden spoon.
I dropped some cake around to my late friend's husband, saying:
 "This isn't no ordinary pieces of cake, they are winning pieces of  chocolate cake!" 
The Rainbow cake I am donating to the local Care Home :)
Hopefully by next month,
The blog will be truly up-to-date πŸ‘
