We went out for dinner with friends last weekened and with family this weekend, the advantage of having birthdays so close together is that we can spread out the celebrations and I can claim them all as my birthday!!
Andy has been poorly again this week, this time with man flu, so once he was better I made his favourite dessert, a chocolate orange torte. I base it on a pampered chef receipe for a mint torte but change the chocolate and essence and here is the result:

This time though we tidied up with a different style as we are preparing the lounge for its make over. So although the lounge is tidier than it has been it is barer in places and the rest of the house is hosting displaced lounge items!!
With the rest of half term we went on an outing to Beaulieu to see the James Bond vehicle collection. We went with friends and had a lovely, if a little chilly, day out. Josh enjoyed it the most as this combined his favourite pasttimes - James Bond and cars (with Top Gear thrown in as well!).

Bless those who persecute you;
bless and do not curse.
Our prayer this week is with our family as we come to terms with our loss and for my Mum and her brothers as they make the necessary arrangements.
With God's blessings from my family to yours x
