What a hectic week it was!!!

Absolutely no crafting for the last week...was been busy working, socializing and preparing...
Yesterday, was quite sunny and i had promised some friends to take them and have a look around for fields of Tulips or Daffodills here on the island...wasn't much compared to years before. I am sure in abundance somewhere on the mainland especially around Northern part of The Netherlands. Below picture was taken from the camera...looks much better... than the one from my Iphone.

This one was taken from my Iphone. I think it's because it is old as i've seen some taken from the boys phone(new ones) were looking much better.
Hubby should be the one standing here as it was for his birthday...saturday! But he's been busy going back and forth to the ferry picking up friends or chatting with friends. Was quite an organization for me to prepare everything for his birthday as i had been working too wed.-till friday so i only have the time for grocery and cooking in the evening...but i did and sure happy to hear all the lovely compliments after the meal. Kind of a challenge as well as i love cooking and wanted to see what i can...About 30 people joined us for the meal, didn't expected it myself..so glad the food was just enough otherwise there are quite some i've made for small bites too.
I've made tarts/cakes, small bites and the main meal.
 Friday evening..Chris with his band had a competition with different students of the Music school they are in for their lessons. From the 22 groups that joined in they ended up as third. So proud Mum here...
 
 Wednesday the 9th was hubby's birthday, it's during weekdays and he preferred to celebrate it with family and friends during the weekend so after work we head out for a meal just the two of us. Kind of a special restaurant and Chris being very choosy with food we've rather made what he wants at home. Grace away during weekdays at University.
 
Wish you all a happy week!!

Preparing for a party of 30 and cooking all the food yourself is quite the undertaking. Lots of work and it all looks delicious!

The tulips are gorgeous. They don't grow tulips commercially around here, only daffodils, but the daffs have been spectacular this year.
Happy Birthday to your husband

Every spring I wait for your pictures of all the great and colourful tulip fields on your island. They are looking so great. Thanks for sharing.

Oh my Mylene, you were a busy lady preparing all the food for your husband's birthday celebration. Your DH and your guests must have been more than satisfied. It looks like a wonderful feast.
