Mam's birthday...

Yesterday was mam's 74th birthday, and after she'd opened all her presents and cards, (forgot to take any piccies) or I should say Alexa opened them for her!! we all went to Peter Barrats garden center for our lunch.

Some of us had lamb casserole with dumplings and some of us the fluffiest cheese and onion quiche I've ever tasted, then we sampled the sweet trolley!!

hmmm what shall it be???

OK scones all round then, I felt round when I'd eaten it!! But it was a birthday treat so what the heck...

Then we did a bit of shopping, well why not hehe.

They've had a huge change around in there and they now stock some Cath Kidston (which is what everyone wants) and Emma Bridgewater goodies, another favourite of mine.

Some pretty pots, string and baskets,

how gorgeous are these gardening gloves???

Alexa chose this E.B. set with little dancing mice on,

and Dylan chose a C.K. cowboy mug, my grandchildren have such good taste don't you agree???

All the plants were so pretty it got me in the mood for gardening after the long winter,

and what could be nicer than this little green frog watering can to water your indoor plant's with eh.

After paying for all our purchases we spotted these cushions on the way out.

I'm so glad it's had a makeover there's much nicer goodies in there now but I think I'll  take Mr  Lucey next time as he has a much bigger wallet than me hehe.

I'm off to look for some pretty fabrics for my swaps and to try and think of some "makes"

Bye for now,

Love Lucey xx

Looks like that could be very dangerous on the purse. That was a scone and a half!
