Tin Anniversary

Yesterday was our tenth anniversary.
A while ago I sewed somthing for Niamh from The Perfectionist Confectionist. We agreed that no money should change hands, but that she would make me a cake at some stage. We decided now was a good time.
Niamh thought that buttons and ribbons would be a good place to start, and I can't think of a better place!

Anniversary Cake

We cut this beautiful chocolate biscuit cake this evening...the children were so excited! C's sister was here too...she's a total chocoholic!

Anniversary Cake

It says "Love is all you need"!

We have had a busy week in the run up to our anniversary, my sister and her two children came to visit Monday to Thursday...it was so lovely to see them.
Today we had a site visit from our Architect and Structural Engineer...so interesting!
Tomorrow is swimming lessons as usual for the bigger children, but Sunday all 6 of us will get our glad-rags on and go for dinner...Italian maybe, just to celebrate all the changes that we have had to our lives over the last 10 years!

That's a lovely cake! The buttons are a neat touch. I hope the architect/structural engineer had nothing but good news for you all.:)

Happy Anniversary! That's a seriously good looking cake!

Joy said...

Happy Anniversary! That cake is amazing. And how nice of the engineer and architect to celebrate your anniversary, ha!

"Glad rags" has an entirely different meaning here...

Thank you very much everyone for your good wishes. We celebrated by going for dinner today with the children and then for a walk. It was a lovely day.

The Architect and Engineer are very enthusiastic about the house, which makes us feel that we are doing the right thing with it. (Lots of people have told us we should knock it!)

Joy...I hope it doesn't mean anything too bad!!!

Oh Millie, just seeing this now. Been to busy to go online. That is so nice. Yay. So glad you liked the cake as much as I like my apron - which, funnily enough, I am wearing now.

Millie said...

Thank you velosewer. It was really lovely.

Thanks Niamh...I'm so glad that you still like (and wear) your apron! Happy New Year dear!
