Half-Birthday Celebrations

I love birthdays and because they only come round once a year, I like to celebrate half-birthdays as well.  Why not?

Yesterday was my half-birthday, so I made myself some yummy scones.

But that leads to the difficult decision of which flavour jam do I want.

The apricot is irresistible - it's made in Sheffield, Grace bought it for me in her local market.  It's so fruity - I'll be ordering some more from her.  I also have a weakness for plum jam.

Perfect.  Now what other little treats can I give myself?

How about trying some machine embroidery?  Why not?  I'll let you know how I get on.


  1. Happy half birthday, your scones look delicious. I am rather partial to strawberry jam.

  2. Hi Janet, Ha ha Happy half birthday-umm love a scone with jam and CREAM!!, bit of an indulgence I admit.
    Your photos of the bike race are brilliant, Liverpool is stunning, what a showcase for your wonderful city, it does reflect that you are all proud of the city and the hard work investing in the dock area and Liverpool one-immaculate.
    I was also impressed with the water features that the little people can play in on a summery day, fun indeed.
    Look forward to the machine embroidery project.

    1. Hi Helen,
      Thank you for your message. It's good to hear other people saying nice things about Liverpool.
      Best wishes,


Thank you for visiting Yellow Pink and Sparkly. I'd love to hear from you, so please feel free to leave a comment.
