|my "fryed' hand.|
On Tuesday my sister Pam and her daughter and grand kids came to NZ to do a surprise afternoon tea for my mum who turned 80 on 13th dec. We took her to a hall up the rd and had her friends meet us there and try to surprise her. She got surprised and really enjoyed herself. She doesn't really bother to celebrate big '0' birthdays or anything much. I made the cake and ended up doing a fruit cake which i have made before...it is actully my christmas cake recipe i make out of the edmonds cook book. It was nice and moist not dry like i thought it would be as i cooked it in the wrong size tin! If i had left it in the oven for the full time i think it would be dry though, So when i make our one today i think i will make the same size and cut down the time... In the last year she has had about 6 of her close friends die. So it was a good turnout for her.
|this is the cake i made for mum...very plain and simple but very yummy!|
I made a beaded bauble and showed everyone and miss Tallulah thought it was pretty enough to hang from her ear lol! I am going to make some more of these hopefully over the xmas break. There was a drama when i was making this but will tell you about that another time.
|Do you like my lovely earring?|
...don't know if i will be back here till after xmas so I hope everyone has a great xmas .
