I have popped in and out this week, posted a few little msgs,and have lurked and read quite a few posts, and have noticed things seem to have got a little fraught this week....

DH in bed, cats asleep, tv off!

soooo I thought a few glasses of wine brew and cupcake for anyone driving/tea total smile

The wine is on the left as you walk in, brew and [cupcakes] on the right, coffee is in the perculator next to the microwave, just help yourselves, plenty of soft seating and cushions scattered around, some nibbles on the table.....




should be enough to go round smile

enjoy your evening, tomorrow is a new day gringrin

merlotgran Fri 31-Aug-12 21:35:54

I would, biker but b,b,and b has it draped across her lap. She might think I'm a bit odd shock

Greatnan Fri 31-Aug-12 21:39:35

Good job it is a big garden or the neighbours would be coming round to complain about the singing.

Butternut Fri 31-Aug-12 21:41:50
