I hope today has been a better day all round for you all xx
Yes, thank you, much, much better x
Good to hear you are all ok, cupcakes look wonderful xx
The children certainly enjoyed them. They have all gone!
Those cupcakes look delicious. I've just caught up on your last post, oh my goodness! Thank you for posting this, some things can feel a little personal to write on a blog, but we won't educate our young people by shying away from what happens in the world. I read your post to Eleanor and she was really shocked by it, but as you say, you never know who will get drawn in to the world of drugs or who's taking them without your knowledge. I hope that Eleanor has learnt a lesson from your post. It must have been such a shock for them all, but I'm really pleased that the young lady concerned is ok now, it could have been so different. I hope Eden isn't too disappointed about her party, I'm sure she'll just be glad that her friend is ok.
She was sympathetic, now she knows the girl is OK she's angry. The girl has denied taking anything and the other party goers don't know whether to believe her or not.
Lovely for you to spend time with your boys and the cupcakes look yummy. On Friday I'm making vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting from an American recipe as part of a 'moving out' dinner for DD3and BF. The trouble is they are too tempting and I should really abstain as I put on weight this week...but surely 1 won't hurt?! How's Eden doing today?
It would be rude not to eat the cupcakes as it's a special occasion! Edens a bit confused as the girl in question is denying taking anything. She wants to believe her as she's her friend but the facts speak for themselves.
sounds like the perfect plan to me!enjoy your day with the boys!-melissa
I did thankyou x
I m sorry to hear about Edens party, what a shock, :(
Thanks Amanda, it most certainly was!
Hi, Bridget, as I'm nearly done with my first pair of socks please can I ask what stitch you use to sew them up? Wouldn't back stitch or mattress stitch be too bulky? I used a flat oversew stitch for the one I discarded which looked okay but I wondered how you finish them.
Hi Helen, I use a flat over stitch as you aren't going to see it unless you fold the cuff back and that's only for a couple of inches. You could sew the cuff from the inside so that when you turn it over the stitching is covered. I don't bother to do that because they are usually under trousers or scrunched down to the top of my walking boots. Hope that helps x
Thanks, Bridget, that's what I thought. I usually sew up the ribbed parts of garments with a flat stitch, so that's what I thought I'd use for the 1x1 ribbed socks, but I wasn't sure what to use when I progressed to the stocking stitch ones.
