Moving Along With A Halloween Party

Good Morning my lovely bloggers and hasn't it been glorious these last few days? Summer has returned and it's put a smile on every ones face again.
I had an amazing time at The Ritz yesterday, my how the other half live!! We ate so much food for our 'tea' that I couldn't eat anything else all day! All washed down with 2 glasses of lovely champagne - Yum! The pianist played Happy Birthday and they appeared with a cake for me (only 1 candle fortunately) and everyone clapped - I was so embarrassed

As it's Thursday already this week it's time for a brand new challenge at
