Our Silver Wedding!

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 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!

Silver Wedding!


I met my DH Ian on a blind date at a super-bowl party. He is my best friend, my rock and I love him more than ever. Our journey has been full off love, laughter and some tears along the way. We have two beautiful children and today we will celebrate our Silver Wedding.
I'm off to the hairdressers and then we are going to lunch at my favourite restaurant. Family and friends will visit tonight for a little celebration. Looking forward to a great day.

My September Song - Me Time!

Life is still full on in the Main household and as well as our continuing every day stresses we have some happy events to look forward to this month. In a few weeks time my DH Ian and myself will be celebrating our Silver Wedding and a few days later I have my birthday. I;m looking forward to these events and a short holiday we will be having but once again I;m struggling to cope with everything that is going on here. I;m going to try and take as much time as possible for myself in the next month to re-charge my batteries. I will miss  you all especially my dear friends who keep in touch and give me so much love and support. I'm looking forward to stitching, reading and spending some time with my DH. Don't panic if your reading this and you have just signed up for the Fall into Halloween exchange. I'm going to have that up and running in the next week and then I will be able to have a break from the exchanges too.
Miss you already, will be back soon, hugs!
