At the halfway point and birthday girl

I have finally got to the halfway point on the Cornwall Cottage Sampler today.  The sixth page (apart from the very top of the letters on the alphabet) is complete.  Bad light has now stopped played but I am really pleased to have got this far.  I wonder how Barbi and Kati are getting on with their samplers?
Today is Elisha’s birthday – 6 today.  At the moment she is mad on unicorns and we bought her the light up plush unicorn she wanted (a bit like a cuddly buddy) and a unicorn money box which we added some money to.  We went to see her at the birthday party her mum and dad had organised for her and it was great to see them having so much fun, including face painting, pin the horn on the unicorn and all the traditional children’s games.
Vicky’s sister made this beautiful unicorn cake for Elisha.
Well our week off work is almost over unfortunately the weather hasn’t been that kind to us this week.  We have, however still enjoyed the rest and relaxation with the added bonus that tomorrow is a bank holiday so we don’t have to go back to work until Tuesday.  This means a short two day week for me – hooray!
