Sunny Friday :)

Good afternoon

How has your week been?  Its been a lovely sunny week here in Suffolk - proper springlike.

Washing has been hung outside and come in a few hours later, dry and with that wonderful linedried smell :)

The sunny weather has made everyone happy - MrVV hasn't felt cold in his office all week and the boys have been happy as they've not needed coats for school.

We've a busy weekend planned here in the VV household - a birthday party for me tomorrow, lunch out & a trip to Southwold on Sunday and then my actual birthday on Monday (and another lunch out).

Today I've been baking towards the party tomorrow - one of my little nieces asked last weekend if there would be pretty cakes at the party? So of course I've obliged;

Lemon cupcakes with lemon icing topped with a mini-egg (well its almost Easter).

When I was out with Country Girl for afternoon tea in the week, these vintage inspired postcards jumped out at me & at just 25p each it would have been madness not to get a whole set. They remind me of sunny, summer days spent at the beach;



Here's hoping you all have a good weekend and we all get some more sunshine.

See you next week

PS - Don't forget to enter my giveaway ;)

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend. I am all in favour of dragging out a birthday so that it lasts for as many days as possible!
Enjoy yourself ;-)
