Christmas on Sunday

I've scheduled this post as I'm off to Edinburgh today.  It is my friend's birthday next Sunday but I'm celebrating with her today by taking her to lunch then to a cupcake decorating class.  She is often found in the kitchen with her eldest granddaughter baking up a batch of cupcakes so next time they're creating she'll be able to show off her new skills!  She knows nothing about the surprise and that's the way it's going to stay until the last minute! 

Anyway, I've only one card to share with you as I was when I got home from the school fete yesterday but it was well worth it.  When I got home it was make tea, feet up, knitting out and TV on for NCIS. 

Enjoy your day whatever you're up to and hope to be back blogging on a regular basis again now that the fete is over.
