Of course my most important numbers to announce are that it is now only 218 days till the Marillion convention next March in The Netherlands.
We celebrated 2 anniversaries this month - 20 years since we officially became a couple and 17 years since we got married. I liked last month how Julie did a comparison of two photos - so here are mine, taken 16 years apart.
17 years ago -
and 1 year ago -
Well I definitely have a lot more hair and poor old Mr P has very little now - I am pretty sure I know who he will blame the hair loss on!! Dad is even more white and distinguished and Mum still looking really lovely.
We did a round trip of 710 miles so that I could join the Frozen North crafters at their monthly crop in Holystone. I managed to make 5 layouts in 12 hours and took 1 coffee cake to share between 13 crafters (really not enough so have been asked to bring 2 cakes next time LOL!!!). We did also visit other friends whilst in the area and did some touristy stuff too.
It has been a productive month - 14 layouts, 10 pairs of earrings, 5 sets of wine glass charms and 8 cards made.
1 new cake recipe tried and 2 lemon dribble cakes made (and no that is not a typo' it is what we call drizzle cake in this house - I promise no saliva was included in the making of the cakes!!!!!). I used this recipe and it produced the lightest, fluffiest cake I have ever made.
And finally just to show how fast this year is disappearing, I saw this on Facebook on the 4th July
It is now actually only 149 days!!!!!!
