Priorities

We're off on our holidays soon so this is likely to be the last post for a couple of weeks. Next week it is our 15th Wedding Anniversary. 15 years - blimey that's a long time. I hunted through all the card shops and yurk, what a load of sentimental old bunkum there! Nothing even remotely suitable (unless I wanted to pay a fortune). Now don't get me wrong, I am quite happy to spend plenty of money on husband, but when I feel I'm being ripped off, I'm not so happy. So decided to make a card instead. Not quite up to Piglottie's standards, but hey, I gave it my best shot!
And as we're going away - self catering - I thought I'd better do something to eat while we're there. So clockwise from bottom left corner we have chocolate chip flapjacks, chocolate coconut and cherry slice, fruit cake, bacon quiche and chocolate marshmallow tray bake. I have a sweet tooth - expect me to come back at least a stone heavier!
I feel my priorities are in the right order. Tomorrow I'll think about packing (first things first, decide on knitting projects to take) and wondering if we have enough clean clothes. Maybe even hunt for a suitcase. Husband has been in the garden since he got home from work - wants to make it all look perfect for when we're away. He's planted some grass seed, trimmed the hedges, dug the borders and even - get this people - swept the gravel drive. With a brush. Yes I know. Strange isn't it? See Monkee Maker, you aren't the only mad person around!!!
See you all in a couple of weeks. I'll miss you!

Why oh why oh why do people have the impression that I'm mad?? I simply can't understand it, I'm perfectly sane! *twitch*

I hope you have a smashing holiday, and Happy Anniversary! How marvellous to be able to spend it with your out-laws!!

And yes, of course I'll enter you into my forthcoming competition by proxy (but don't tell anyone else!)

...'snif...I'll miss you too. Have fun - and entertain the idea of sending us a post card - or seven.

ps: I'd totally pay a fortune for that card : )

oooh yummy! I would like the recipe for the chololate cherry slice please? You are such a lovely Mummy, I used to do all that when mine were younger, I hated spending money on horrid prepacked excessively additived food for my already exciteable children! Anyway, we need the spare money for nice things like yarn and stuff!

Happy holidays and a happy anniversary too - love the card. Looks like you're well prepared in the edibles department - they look and sound delicious. Look forward to hearing all about your break in a few weeks.
