Birthday and Cabin Celebrations

During this past week have had good reason for celebrations around the cottage. Mothers Day last Sunday was a lovely day and made even better when Pete decided to lay pavers around the front of the house and around the cabin..... he ended up getting some help when Stace and John turned up!   Then early in  the week we got the results from follow up biopsies for my Hubbie was diagnosed with prostate cancer in mid February - seems the aggressive tumor has been downgraded.  Thankyou to all those who have had him in prayer.  No treatment or surgery at this stage, just a "Watch and Wait" which means follow up blood tests in 6 months time to keep a check on things.

On Friday I got to celebrate my birthday with a trip to the cinema with my daughter to see "The Other Woman" - hilarious!  We had chinese takeaway for a dinner treat and dear daughter had bought an ice cream cake we all enjoyed.  I thought I was well spoilt when a delivery van pulled up and unloaded a lovely chest freezer (something I really need around here as the freezer with the drawers just doesn't hold all I need it to when we harvest all our produce).  The next day Pete asked if I'd bothered to look inside - well I thought he meant had I read the booklet yet, but apparently I had missed the little white package which held a lovely pair of earings from the jewellers!!! 


Saturday afternoon, I had a few friends over to celebrate the cabin being finished - what better way to celebrate than with a coffee and craft afternoon!  It was lovely and we all enjoyed it!  I think there may have to be more of these.

This afternoon I moved my sewing machines out there and started on some sewing for swap I've joined up for....... I do think its coming out a little more life like than I had hoped, so sure hope it doesn't scare my poor swap partner lol........
