 This past week has been full of things to celebrate!
My daughter came back from Brighton for a few days and while she was home her Degree results came through. I am so proud as she received a  1st class with Honours!!She has worked so hard on her course, setting up an art magazine that she has sold all over the world she really does deserve it!
It was the Hubsters birthday too,  a double celebration so we went out for a family meal.This was my choice.Chicken and Smoky Bacon Cheesy Avocado bake, it was delicious!

 My daughter also made a Chocolate Brownie cake which my son decorated with fresh raspberries and   cream!A team effort!
One of my gifts to the Hubster was a day out in London. We went to the Titantic exhibition at The O2.An amazing experience, although very sad and  moving  too!We also visited here   which was fascinating! Not for the faint hearted though!
We nipped to Covent Garden for an icecream and a wander. Lots of people were buying the Paella, it smelt delicious!
We had already eaten here  the Mousakka was gorgeous! It really was a lovely day out!
Yesterday I went to an Open Gardens at a local village with my friend Karen!Here are some piccies from the event!                                                                                                                                                                                

I found out that I loved Philedelphus athlough I have not got a picture of it!
Must get me one of those!
Thank you for all the Pergola advice, you were all very helpful, I knew I could rely on you!
It has taken me ages to write this post, the text is all over the place, I have fiddled and faffed for ages but can't get it right!

Hi Rachel,

What a lovely weekend you must have had. Congratulations on your husbands birthday and your daughters degree!

The photo of your daughter made me realise we must be around the same age :-) What a pretty girl she is, and clever too! You must be very proud mum.

Have a lovely new week!
