I have pondered recent news scares about online relationships, the loss of the art of social interaction. I have reached the conclusion that these moaning minnies are clearly not participating in the world of blogging that I inhabit. I have been privilleged enough to meet a few bloggy ladies now and always I have thoroughly enjoyed the warmth of their company. I get a huge sense of happiness that this strange soup called blogger has enabled me to meet like minded and creative individuals. And today was exceptional. Cake was eaten....Orange and Almond (and the jury is out as to whether this one will make it into my recipe book). Pretty gifts were exchanged..I made this for my friend...
and look what pretties she found to add to my collection! So beautiful!
Even the beautiful boy received a perfect gift and already he and daddy are planning which model to test first!
Can you guess who came to visit Norfolk today? Want a clue?
Ok so thats fairly obvious isn't it! The lovely Mr and Mrs Custard came down our way and we hope very much they'll be back soon for a longer stay! But before then Mrs Custard has far more important things to do!
I feel sure this event, the second Vintage and Handmade Fair organised by Michele and Jayne, will be a huge success. Lucky you if you live close enough to go along for some jolly shopping. Have a bun and a cuppa for me! I so wish I could be there!
Once our guests left us the beautiful boy and I had chores to do in town. Of course this is always an excuse to check out our favourite charity shops and the beautiful boy fell in love...
...with a HUGE tapestry picture of ships and seagulls and waves crashing on the rocks. (sorry, tricky to get a picture without reflections on the glass!). It's very kitsch. I loved it too and at the weekend we will have a shuffle around to find a space for it on his bedroom wall.
I found this lovely Finnish honey pot and snazzy metal tray....
and a few books with jolly summertime pictures.
All in all a perfect day.
Now, have you noticed what happens tomorrow?! Well, yes, we have the lovely journalist coming to visit for a chat and that's going to be such fun! Another virtual contact made real! But also, tomorrow is my blogiversary! There will certainly be cake! Cake and more. Do stop by and say hello! t.xx
