Hello everyone! It's so nice to have a post about something nice for a change. The last few weeks have been great and Ian and myself would like to thank everyone for the cards, gifts and kind thoughts on the occassion of our Silver Wedding. Our wonderful son and daughter organised a lovely day for us both.
We started our day with lunch at our favourite restaurant in the Cornhill House Hotel. Tablet ice-cream with caramel sauce my day was complete already..lol. When we returned home Craig had decorated the house with a few banners, balloons and this "small" one he had been hiding in his bedroom for two days.
Family and friends joined us in the evening for a small buffet with champagne and two beautiful cakes.
Craig and Heather had a local cake maker do this one. Purple is our favourite colour. Isn;t it beautiful.
My dear 75 year old Mum made this gorgeous cake for us too. Though it looks black in the photograph it;s glitter that's on the cake.
We received so many beautiful cards and gifts. A number of people also gave us money and we bought the glass vase and poppy pottery jug while on holiday. We;re hoping to use the rest of the money to buy new doors for our newly decorated living-room. Ian and I were also both so touched when we received this beautiful stitched pillow from June and Ron. The stitched piece at the top of the post, I did start weeks ago but sadly with my limited stitching time these days I didn;t get it finished on time. Thank you again to everyone who made this day so special for us.
I will be back in a few days time with another post on our holiday, my birthday treats and maybe even a little stitching. Hugs!
