"Ahoy there me hearties"




Well here is the cake. It was pretty easy to make, it is amazing what skewers/kebab sticks can do to hold a cake together. Joel was very happy with it and at the end of the day that is what is important. The pirates came from a toy which Joel has had for some time and I also added a treasure chest with some of Caitlyn's toy jewellery.
If you are a religious person could you please keep this young girl, Georgina, in your thoughts. She was struck down by a mystery illness over a year ago and was placed in a medically induced coma. Whenever the coma drugs were eased off, she would begin fitting. I learnt of her blog at our old church not long after she became ill and have followed her plight via the blog set up by her father and a family friend. In his most recent post her father has particularly asked for patience.

Hi Joanne
Thanks for the link to Georgina. Had not heard of her before however had an occasion to take my grandson to Westmead a couple of weeks ago with an asthma-like attack - it's an amazing place. I'll be saying a prayer for her now I know of her. I'm also a stitcher and love seeing what others are achieving.
Blessings!

The cake turned out very cute! Good job!

I'm so sorry to hear about Georgina. I can't imagine how difficult her situation is for her parents to bear. She will be in my prayers.

I don't think you need to be a particularly religious person to send good thoughts to someone. I hope everyone will take a moment to wish Georgina back to good health.
