I have been tagged several times to do the Seven Meme but I am going to cheat and just post a picture of my little man who was seven yesterday. Here he is with his cake (note cat in background cuddling a Pokemon toy!).

Happy Birthday Alfie.

Here are all three of my lovelies. I can't believe how they are growing. They are now 17, 7 and 2 and I am constantly amazed that they came from me. I think they are my finest work!

The last few days have been crazy for me. Since the Sunday Times published my phone number I have had loads of phone calls from fabric people, mostly wanting to sell ME fabric! Luckily I have also had a few sales. I have had to list lots more fabrics to replace the ones sold. Business is looking good and the feedback I have had from customers has been wonderful. It makes it all worthwhile.

Well it's Bank Holiday Weekend here again so I guess that means more rain. Last weekend was lovely, bright and sunny. We spent the day at the beach with Paul's brother and son, building sandcastles, crab fishing and watching the sunset.

Whatever you do this weekend, rain or shine, have a good one. x Pin It

Happy Birthday Alfie!!

I know what you mean about not believing they came from you. Everyday I consider the luck of my life that I get to know Z!

Hi Donna,

A belated 'Happy Birthday' to Alfie!

I love your tabby cat - he/she looks like a lovely cuddly old thing - I have a soft spot for tabbies!

What gorgeous children you have by the way!

Glad to hear you're nice and busy with the website.

Good job you had that weekend on the beach last weekend - aren't we having some awful weather today?!

Lovely post Dons. I really enjoyed the photos.
