Well I have had a wonderful birthday. 4 birthday cakes!! How lucky am I? (I have to admit one of them was made, well bought by me). Thank you to all my friends. I always think a birthday is not a birthday with out a cake. I did not manage to get a photo of the cake my husband gave me before it disappeared so I have photographed the left overs. (The pink one on the left).

I took a birthday cake to work yesterday. As I don't do baking I purchased a lemon tart from the supermarket and plonked a yellow rose on it from the garden on it. Pretty cute I thought. So many birthdays at this time of the year. My sister and I are 11 months and 3 weeks apart in age so we are the same age for a week every year.

It is my Greek friend Mena's "Name Day" this week. In Greek Orthodox tradition, nearly every day of the year is dedicated to a Christian saint or Martyr. When someone is named after a Saint, there is a big celebration on his/her name day. Traditionally food is given to celebrate the day. So... as I don't do cooking I decided to buy a cake and add my special touch by decorating it. It is the thought that counts isn't it?

I am still working on christmas card design for the Department where I work part time. It is always a challenge to design something that suits everybody. We have a combination of different styles, tastes and personalities. I personally don't like using the traditional colours red and green and others really like that combination, so usually I end up producing 3 or 4 different cards and then everybody is happy.
