We have friends joining us for dinner this evening so yesterday was a day for clearing and cleaning up - hubby went to Tesco's whilst I cracked on with that and then it was time for me to make dessert ..... one of my fave's. So, nothing particularly craft related but this little gem IS a work of art!
|Doesn't this look yummy? It certainly benefits from 24 hours in the fridge hence me making it yesterday/|
|Look at all those refreshments!!!|

And now for the Friday Funny - this week courtesy of Pat - thanks Pat. This week's funny has a cheeky punch line so, if you are easily offended then please don't read on - the rest of you ... ENJOY!
Ethel was a bit of a demon in her scooter and loved to charge around the nursing home, taking corners on one wheel and getting up to maximum speed on the long corridors.
Because the poor woman was one sandwich short of a picnic the other residents tolerated her and some of them actually joined in.
One day Ethel was speeding up one corridor when a door opened and Kooky Clarence stepped out with his arm outstretched.
As she took the corner near the TV lounge on one wheel, weird Harold popped out in front of her and shouted 'STOP! Have you proof of insurance?'
As Ethel neared the final corridor, Crazy Craig stepped out in front of her, Butt- Naked, and holding his 'You-Know- What' in his hand.
