It's almost like living in a bakery.
With a couple of grandsons (and their Papa) arriving today, Lady Magnon is taking her grandmotherly duties very seriously, and she's been baking to her little heart's content.
Yesterday it was yet more Mince Pies, and an Apple and Cinnamon Cake; her efforts were boundless.
One thing's for certain; they'll be no shortage of buns, pies, or cakes, when the boys are here.
I just hope they appreciate all her efforts;...... of course they will.
I'm off to the airport after lunch; they'll be here in time for tea.
How wonderful! I know how excited you must be to see them!ReplyDelete
Can't wait; I hope they're be getting excited too.Delete
Looks good - I can almost smell that cake.ReplyDelete
Please say hello to my nephew and great nephews.
What a wonderful feeling.ReplyDelete
A week of fun ahead of us.Delete
Sensible Granny. Now everything is ready in advance for the arrival of the boys and papa.ReplyDelete
She's been very excited.... making beds, baking, etc. She loves it.Delete
Of course the cakes and buns and pies will all be enjoyed....they were made with love....and you must be so excited about the visit..have fun.ReplyDelete
We will, thanks Libby.Delete
We hope Lady M will take time to enjoy the visit too. It all looks delicious - what lucky boys !ReplyDelete
They're pampered; and so they should be. If grandparents can't make a big fuss of them; who can?Delete
It's been a while since their last visit - it will be a great reunion and I bet the pies and cakes will go down a treat - good old Lady M.ReplyDelete
We haven't seen them for ages. I think they look forward to all the cakes, etc.Delete
Getting the baking done in advance will free up time to enjoy their stay. Very sensible.ReplyDelete
That apple and cinnamon cake sounds lovely.
It smelt wonderful when baking; no doubt it will taste as good.Delete
Enjoy your boys - and the cakes!ReplyDelete
Horrible weather here, Sue, and it's forecast to continue for another week (at least). Still, you can't have everything.Delete
No swimming then! Enjoy the visit.ReplyDelete
The option will be on the table; but I doubt if it'll be accepted.Delete
I like a home where mince pies aren't saved just for Christmas. xReplyDelete
It's essential in this house; I demand Mince Pies all year round.Delete
I would....if I wasn't the person making them!Delete
Tea being the operative word by the looks of it Cro. Don't expect it will last that long with two hungry boys.ReplyDelete
She has more in reserve, in the freezer.Delete
How exciting! It is a grandparents job to spoil their grandchildren. EnjoyxxxxReplyDelete
Whether spoiling or bribing, I do it to get them to come home though I'm exhausted afterward. It is sweet that you both are excited. I think my husband gets more excited than I do - probably due to which one has to do most of the work.ReplyDelete
I'm just back from the airport! Boys very excited.Delete
What a loving "nonna" lady M is, and Cro, I hope you have you been practicing your table tennis? Greetings Maria xReplyDelete
...sorry a "you" too manyReplyDelete
We've already had a game. They love it.Delete
I'm guessing that by the time I type this, you all might be happily gathered together round the tea table. How wonderful to be welcomed by Lady M's delicious baking. There was once a commercial with a tune that said, "nothin' says lovin' like something from the oven." I think that there's still truth in that notion.ReplyDelete
Best wishes to you all.
Yes, the first thing they did was to eat buns and play Ping Pong. They're now taking Bok for a walk before supper.Delete
It is what we do. We did not give our own kids lots of sugar, but when we become grandparents, the sugar factory went into overtime.ReplyDelete
The winter blues will be on hold while your grandchildren and son visit. Have fun!
It's fun time for a week. Lovely to have them here.Delete
Who wouldn't appreciate the effort! Sounds heavenly.ReplyDelete
They've already been tucking-in; I think she'll have to bake a lot more.Delete
A week of baked goods and family .... what could be better. Enjoy every minute Cro. XXXXReplyDelete
A week of pleasure for all. Lovely.Delete
