Her Majesty's Theatre

Outside the Theatre [in pink]

The waiting

The Ticket
In McDonald's


On Sunday my eldest Granddaughter, Abigail age 9, performed on stage at Her Majesty's Theatre London.
The show called Bobby Dazzlers was to showcase dancegroups from around the country.
Chris and I met up with the family [Richard, Jacquline, Eleanor and Abigail] in McDonald's where the group went to eat before the performance, as they had been rehearsing all day.
It was a wonderful evening and one we would not have missed for anything, even though it cost £36 in the car park!!!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

My Entry
I belong to a ladies gym called Curves and this month they are doing a lot to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Charity.
On Fridays we are asked to wear pink !
Buy a box of smarties and fill it with 20p coins.
Cake stalls, cookery demos, make up are all some of the events they are holding, plus a "decorate a  bra " competition.
This is my entry for the bra competition, and being rather large in that department it took a LOT of flower petals!
I managed to find a machine embroidery pattern for the Charity logo to add to the strap.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Hot from the oven
I am the first to admit I am not known for my cooking.. yes I can cook a meal that is edible, but I would sooner be in my Happy Room sewing!
However Judy Laquidara printed this recipe on her blog http://www.patchworktimes.com/2009/09/30/pumpkin-gingerbread/ 
and it looked so good I thought I would try it.. the two loaves have just come out of the oven and they smell so good, so it's Pumpkin Gingerbread for tea tonight.
