While the cat is away...

Hello friends
Another day of such wonderful comments and emails yesterday, you are all so supportive and 
it truly mean a great deal.
As mentioned, Elliott is drafting his own blog post - that will be coming along soon.
Talking of is he yesterday baking a cake for today's class!
I had to go up to my London job yesterday so I was running out of time.  
He offered to make a cake with the help of my Mum.
I will post a picture of the finished cake tomorrow and will let you know the taste verdict!
Also while I was at work someone had a bath...

 I wouldn't say she likes baths but she is well behaved in the bubbles.
This is in readiness for the special event of picking out a winner for yesterday's Ornate Squares!
That will be middle of next week.
Wishing you all a brilliant weekend - thank you for sharing your weekend details with me,
some really interesting things going on - enjoy! 
Take care.

Hi Christine, I'm sure the cake will be lovely. It looks like Elliott is enjoying himself baking, it's not something I could convince my son to do, although he cooks a lovely meal.
Have a good class, I'm looking forward to my one in May. Enjoy the test of the weekend

Hi Christine, lovely to see Elliott enjoying himself (at least he looks as if he is). What a brilliant young lad he is.
And isn't Bella good in the bath! Couldn't do that with my cat.

Hope your day went well and you all enjoyed the cake.

Have a good weekend - we're all routing for you.

Elliott looks completely in control there in the kitchen. Looking forward to seeing his finished masterpiece (if you get a piccie before it gets snaffled!) There's no way you could get our dog in the bath like that (mind you, she is 6 stone and random:) Have a great weekend, hugs Jenny x

Hi Christine. I think Elliott is a budding TV chef in the making. Bet it tastes great.

Can't believe Bella is so good in the bath. I have to put my mack on when I bath Gracie.

Have a good weekend.

Hi Christine,
What a good boy Elliott is baking for his Mum, does he do dinner too. Great pics of Bella, my dog dosn't like baths but loves a mad half hour running around after having one. It's so funny to watch it's worth giving her one.

Hi Christine

Great photos today. I wonder if you'll feel the cake tastes even better today as it's been cooked by Elliot. I know I feel other people's cooking is often better than mine!

Hope you have a lovely day with your class of ladies.

Hi Christine
Looks like you have a young Jamie Oliver in the making there.
And Bella, I would love to know what's she's thinking in the bottom photo, she's looking up a someone with some thought going through her mind....... could it be "I'd rather be sampling the cake that's cooking" ha ha
Hope the class today (and the cake) is a huge success

Wow, lucky you to have such a handsome cake-maker at home :)

Patricia Howarth said...

Hi Christine, Brilliant pics today of Elliott and Bella, I bet the cake was delicious, and I bet Bella looks more gorgeous than usual after her coiffure. I'm betting the lucky ladies had a brilliant time at your class, too, do let us know what they thought of the 'masterchef's cake'.
I'm exhausted after my craft show today, I did 4 make and takes, but still managed to spend money on Spellbinders ha ha, then when I got home, I did all the front garden and now my back is really aching, my hubby did the sweeping up for me and now we're both aching ha ha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

I'm just catching up with your blog today and hearing your news of Elliott. What a wonderful young man he is and with a wonderful attitude, it will make all the difference on his journey of healing. The doctors and hospitals can do so much these days. Myself and my family will include you all in our prayers. My older brother had a brain tumour removed 12 years ago when he was in his late 30's and he is in brilliant health today, he also has a very positive outlook on things. I wish you all well and thank you for including us.

Just read back a few posts and I'm sorry to hear that Elliot is having a tough time at the moment. How kind of him to bake a cake for you - I bet it was delicious too. I hope that all goes well for you both in the next few months and that there are many more cakes to follow!
