"The O.B.E"

Hello and welcome to my little corner of Blogland.
Hope you are all well.
Thank you so much for continuing to support me on my Blogging Journey.
Welcome to my new follower Mary, so glad you have decided to join the happy band.
Please keep calling by, I do hope you enjoy what you see.
Hazel and I did our Craft Fair along at the Tearoom today.  I was very busy, we did very well.  As usual the things we thought we would sell did not.  Hazel had done a couple of "BIG" Gift baskets, they sold almost immediately.  Sold lots of the Origami Boxes, some the Gift Bags, pendants and a few other bits and pieces.  Oh! my Homemade Truffles went very well, especially the ones with the Bailey!s Irish Cream in them.........................!!!!!
I thought I would indulge myself and be the proud parent.  Hope you don`t mind, this sort of thing does not happen every day.
Here are John & Audrey at Buckingham Palace with John`s O.B.E

Right folks I am off to bed, I am full of the cold.  Do not know where it came from but it is here "full on".  I have not had a cold for about 4 years.  I think they have been gathering and have come all at once.
I might be gone for a couple of days the way I feel at the moment.  I felt it while we did the Craft Fair but it has really hit me since I got back home.
Be good till I get back
Thank you for calling I really do appreciate it
Till next time

  1. Oh how nice the picture you put up. Oh they look darling.. You must get this book called The Tearberry Stangler.

    Not as bad as it's title. Real mystry. As the lady wit the tearoom gets involved in tryint to solve the mystry bit I loved her story in the tearoom.

    Like your in the kitchen as a server preparing.

    Brew yourself a nice pot of tea and enjoy the book.

    By Laura Childs.

    It indails a neat tearoom. Hawaiian Tea sandwiches, Almond Devonshire Cream,Butterscotch Scones and many more.

    I so loved the read in her book.

    oh my so many nice flav teas.

  2. So Glad to hear you did well at the Craft Fair Patricia.. You have every right to be a proud parent and an OBE in the family definately deserves some form of celebration I would think. Sorry to hear about the awful cold that seems to be doing it rounds at the moment. It took me a while to get over it and I never had a cold in all the years i worked. Comforting Hugs. Rita xxxx
