Hello my ‘dearest’ friends

Firstly, my heartfelt thanks to you all for all your best wishes and concerns whist I have been feeling unwell! I am SO pleased to *see* the back of July this year as it has been one thing after another with visiting various consultants and my G.P. for various tests etc, I don’t wish to boar you all with the details and I am just so pleased to be back with you all now.

On a brighter note for July 08 I have been having a new kitchen fitted and it’s still an ongoing project at the moment. As I type I am having my new tiles added to the walls and it will be great to get the whole project finished and not looking and feeling as if I am living on a building site lol.

Danish pastries Daring Bakers Junes Challenge
I know I am way behind in posting my Junes challenge for Daring Bakers but I wanted to share with you what I had baked. I really enjoyed this challenge because it is something I have never baked before and it was such fun. He filling consisted for the large pastry an apple filling; the small pastries were filled with an apricot filling. A great success with my family and they didn’t last very long before the last morsel was eaten *giggle*.

Hi Rosie, It's lovely to have you back! I suspected that you were unwell - I do hope that you are on the mend and feeling much better. You were sorely missed. I dropped in every now and again to see if you were back, and was very excited to receive your comment today.

Rosie said...

Thank you everyone & many thanks for your concerns since my illness - I do value your support very much :)

Still have a few tests this month to have i.e. a 24hr ECG tape box & a heart scan. Getting used to new medication for other problems but really on the up now and it feels great to be back with you all :)

Best wishes Rosie x
