A Heart-felt Thank-you. If I Knew You Were Coming I'd Have Baked A Cake !

Hello gorgeous Picket Fence friends!
 Wow , it's been a big week in blog land :) So many visitors, I'm thrilled . This is really just a very quick thank-you to all that have visited my blog, my stats have soared and your beautiful comments make me look at my family and smile xx
I went to a garage sale this morning and found the sweetest little wire cake stand. Yay time to make another cake !
We made a basic sponge, you know, five eggs , some sugar and flour, a lot of air and a hot oven, if you want my recipe, let me know and I'll post it. In the mean time, I thought I'd share some photos of the Picket Fence Children cracking some eggs, the recipe called for 5 eggs  :) we went through 10. If there was a sound track here, it would be a chorus of giggles, with the odd Eeewwww to break the laughter! I love the way children break eggs, its a steep learning curve.


 We had fun with this alone... The cake was a bonus xx
 Add some icing, some cream, a Cadbury Flake, some hungry tummy's and yep, you have a recipe for a wonderful afternoon. Another, more wordy, post coming soon, I promise :) This lucky Picket Fence Mummy was given an award! More about that shortly.
Until then, enjoy your weekend, maybe even ( bad joke alert).....get cracking  xx

  11. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of
    any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you
    would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run
    into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  12. Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from
    somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements
    would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you
    got your design. Many thanks
