Sun, Rain, Hail & eve Snow !!!!

That's what we have had here in Co.Tipperary this week.  The last 3 weeks have been gorgeous with temps up in the high teens and then all of a sudden it got cold and windy and the hail & snow started falling again !!!

Still it gave me plenty of time to make some cards and have a spring clean of my Craft Room - I have a Page above with items that I have up for sale that I no longer use or have never used.

As well as my now weekly or twice weekly batch of Scones I made a yummy feather light Carrot Cake - didn't bother with the cream cheese icing because I was trying to stick to my diet as much as I could LOL

This year's Rhubarb is almost ready to pick so will have to come up with some nice recipes to use it up - I do love Rhubarb Crumble  & custard though :)

To finish here are a few pics taken in the last couple of weeks :)

WOW it's only April & we have Sunshine !!!

Can't believe this lovely weather we are having at the moment, it is gorgeous.  Although a little chilly at times - but my hubby tells me that it's only me that's cold.!! typical men.  Downside of this lovely weather is I am in the house on my own now all but one of my pets have gone - yes Robbie leaves me to spend the day in the garden with my hubby.  He does come in when it's time for food though LOL

Have been busy busy busy crafting and enjoying it.  Mostly making stock cards though, with the odd request thrown in :)

This shows how busy I have been - just look at the state of my desk !!!

Made another batch of scones this morning, to keep the hubby happy LOL, this is an old picture cos this morning I made 9 but they look just the same :)

Over the Easter weekend I actually won an Easter Egg with a draw on FB by MD Lock & Key Locksmiths in Clonmel, so off to Cashel we went to pick it up from their other shop and I couldn't believe the size of it.  Well the downside was I couldn't eat it due to my Diabetes but my hubby enjoyed every mouthful LOL

It was only when I saw the picture of myself hold this egg that I realised just what a difference the loss of 5 stone has made to me.  The first picture below is of me 2yrs ago on my 50th Birthday (with my Mum) the 2nd picture is of my now with the said egg.

The last picture is of the lovely flowers my hubby bought me for Easter in place of the egg :)
