Here we are again, I've been missing for a couple of weeks and this week's desk isn't crafty but it will be later!
So, at the front we have a cake box containing half of a huge cake which my M-I-L made for my joint birthday party on Saturday. The other half is at my brother's. In the middle is half a bag of goldfish crackers and at the back is a box of toys.
Explanations required?
On Saturday I had a party with my brother, he was 40 last week and I will be 50 in two weeks. My niece, her husband and her little boy came over for the event, hence the goldfish crackers. Yesterday I spent the day with them in Brighton and then they came back to mine for toad in the hole. Although my niece is American and has lived in the states for all but six weeks of her life, she absolutely loves English food and I have to cook all of her favourites whilst she is here.
The box of toys was half of the mess that Corbin and my two boys made while they were here. It was so lovely to see my boys actually playing with real toys rather than their IPhones!
My lovely niece came bearing gifts for us all including a DCWV paper pad for me and these little beauties
Just in case you are wondering, it is a FOUR pound jar of peanut butter and it is amazing on crumpets
OK, I have to go now but don't forget to pop by Julia's blog to travel around the world being nosy.
I'll leave you with a rather amusing shot of me at my party. I believe it was rather late on during my dancing hours!


  1. Hope your desk see's some craft action soon, all these pics of food has made me hungry so i'm off to find some for myself

  2. 4lbs of peanut butter?? Blimey, that's impressive :) The photo of you is fab, gorgeous dress btw, makes you look a foxy babe!
    I didn't think I had the patience to try your lovely ribbon trees, so thought of a quicker way to get a similar effect - instant gratification, that's what I'm all about *grin*
