Oh What a Day....

I have been absolutely flat out today! My nephews party was great fun. He really loved his train cake, and so did everyone else. Boy does it take some time to decorate a cake like that, I'm lucky that I baked the cakes last night, it took me 2.5 hours to decorate it this morning.

I ended up crocheting him a couple of finger puppets last night to go with his present. When he opened the apple one and I showed him how the worm worked, (you put your finger through the bottom of the apple and the worm pokes out), he nearly cried.... Not quite the reaction I was hoping for, but I'm sure that they'll grow on him, they're so cute.

Why is it so much easier to be down on ourselves than to celebrate the good stuff? I have decided that every day for the next 30 days I am going to list 1 tip a day on how to be a happier you!!!!
Todays tip is #1 - If you feel like chocolate, buy the best you can afford and share it with someone... Savour every mouthful...


  1. Hey Jode,
    Great tip especially if its dark chocolate which has the added benefits of plenty of antioxidents.

    I love ur new header its really u very brown and country.

    The cake looked fab. Very Thomas. I was thinking of u and the massive job that cake would have been today.

    I cant believe jordy cried when he saw the worm...too cute....You have to give me the pattern and the one for the finger puppets.....
