Day to day fun

Have been going since 7am this morning. An hour and a half round trip to go to cakes around town and pick up a EXcel board, my new favorite thing in the whole world. Makes flower making so much easier, I now have 5 orchids wired and drying. Now on to rolling cake pops, which I have found out don't really like them that much :) Have been so involved in it all this morning that I almost forgot to eat. So am sitting at the moment having a little kip before I get back into it :)
