Happy St David's Day from a Very Happy Welshie

St David is the patron Saint of Wales.
The 1st of March is the day the Welsh celebrate his life and the Welsh culture 

I have something to celebrate on this Welshie day

A Card, and who do you think this is this from?

Not just a card.

Gifts from the one I love "Stanzie"

A Dragon, a Heart and photo album to keep under my pillow

Love you Stanzie always. 
Thanks for making one Welshie's
St David's Day so special

Stanzie say's they will be making Welsh Cake's
Here's my recipe


George the Lad's Welsh Cakes

125g of butter
250g of self rising flour
75g of castor sugar (super fine)
Pinch of mixed spices
100g of currants/sultanas/raisins
1 egg beaten

Mix together the butter and flour
Add the egg
Put the sugar, spice and fruit into the mixture
Put the mixture into the fridge to cool for 30 minutes
Roll out the mixture to 1 cm thick
Cut into circles
Cook the cakes in a frying pan or on a bakestone WITHOUT using oil or butter until they are browned on both sides. (don't have it to hot they will burn before being cooked!!)
Sprinkle with sugar and serve, they also taste nice with butter on them.
Best when warm or reheated in microwave!


Happy St David's Day Everyone

Love and Hugs George and Tess xxx

Hello and welcome to the February Tess

The Awaited Visit

Me and George finely got to visit Gran and Granpops new home

"Its got a big garden George"

"The apple tree's are over there Tess"

We are looking forward to getting some apple pie later in the year.
"Dad could make cider!"

Not a bad view from the front

"Lets have a look around the back"

A veggie garden

A stream runs at the back, but we can't get to it.

The Snowdrops are flowering

We like Granny and Granpops new home and they are happy to.


Snow days

 We had a great three days in the snow
Day One

Colin joined us for a walk

Lots of running about

Day Two

Our friend Tuffy joined us on the same walk

More running around

Day Three

We had to put a weather report on Fuzz Book

To show our friends Roxy and Roger what the roads where like, as they said they would love to pop over and walk our local hood.

The main roads where OK but our road was snowy

But they made it

Ben and Jenny also walked with us.

plus Tuffy and Colin

We had a great three days playing with our friends.

Farewell to a Fishy Friend

The pond is missing one of our favourite fish

He as gone to the pond in the sky, we had many happy times with him

He was always the first to come and see us

He was on most of the photos with us sitting on the pond, check out our header photo he's on that.

 He was the fish that got me into trouble because you thought I'd pushed Colin in the pond! Colin just wanted to catch him.

We miss you
