Good enough to eat swap!!

I recently too part in the 'Good enough to eat swap' host by two lovely ladies:
Claire of Are we nearly there yet? and Em of Em's shabby shack.

I was partnered with Louise from Handmade in Gibralta.

Louise is a wonderfully kind and very clever lady!!

She sent me a fantastic swap parcel!

Look.....


Louise made the beautiful apron with the cupcake motive, her friend made the gorgeous smelling soap, and the coffee was from her local shop, she also sent me a photo of the coffee being ground too!!!
She also included that very pretty cupcake photograph stand and the gorgeous angel - one of my favourte things!! There was also the scrummy sounding Louise's Carrot cake recipe!!

What can I say, thank you so much Louise for the thought that you put in to this lovely parcel!!

I love everything

Kindest wishes anf love

Missing You!!

Every year in March we go to Orlando in Florida for a couple of weeks!!

Not for the parks so much now - I believe I told you that I hate the rides!!!

But I love being in them, it's such an exciting atmosphere!!




The weather is normally warm, sunny and sometimes cloudy too!!

I JUST LOVE IT!!

We always stay in a gorgeous house with it's own pool



We shop, we eat, we eat and shop!!!







But this year we didn't go because I was not allowed to fly!!

Orlando I've missed you!!

I will miss you all, as I have spent most days while I have been off in your company!!!

I'll now only be visiting during the evening !!

Thank you for your wonderful company!!
