Hi blogger buddies
Hope you are all keeping well.
This last week or two has been a bit hectic at Winnibriggs Towers. Finally finished the bits for my giveaway, made my grandson a Fireman Sam outfit to wear to nursery to raise funds for a local hospice charity and celebrated his 4th birthday....

He makes a great fireman!.... coat reconstructed from charity shop mac and trousers made from waterproof kite fabric........

His birthday was actually on Monday, but as this was a nursery day, he started celebrating (and opening presents....soooo many!) on Sunday.
He had a lovely day out at Twin Lakes, with some little friends and then a birthday tea at home with the family.
His very talented mum from Giddy Kipper, (no apologies for the shameless plug there!) made him a fabulous birthday cake and it went perfectly with his table setting......

I think I can safely say he had a great time....well done mum!......
I'll be back tomorrow to show some lovely things the postie has bought, but for now..
