The cake is gorgeous!!!!        And going back to little 'foibles' I like to buy a box of 15 eggs, rather than 6 or 12 - because I HAVE to move the eggs around so that the 'pattern' is symmetrical once I've used any.  And it's easier to do with a box of 15!  My husband's been known to move them around just to wind me up!
YES, YES, YES.  OMG!  This is exactly what I'd do. EXCEPT - now, I do a table in Word.  I have one column with the names of everyone I need to write gifts for. In the next column I write the gift. And if it's a joint gifts (like the year we bought the boys the X Box) then,  yes, I merge the cells! Then the third column is for how much it costs (I just like to keep a note of what I'm spending). The fourth column has the heading 'Bought'. The last column has the heading...
I've just looked it up and like so many people, I definitely don't have that but I  see a few traits that I can relate to (eg, if my list isn't neat, because I don't like my handwriting, I will do it again.)  Likewise, I've been known to completely strip a cake and start again because I was unhappy with it.  That's not to say my cakes are perfect, but I will do them to the absolutely best of MY ability. How does the OCPD manifest when you're working?  What age group do you...
Ground open up and swallow me!!!! It's a phrase my dad uses...  although, drop the H...  Sorry. 
Do you tick them off or cross them through? I'm a cross them through kind of girl.  I get great satisfaction from it. But I'm also a bit OCD about writing lists...  if they're not really neat, I'll get a new piece of paper and start again.  And if anyone dares to write on my list (ie to add to it) I will get a new piece of paper and start again.  I'm odd.  I have so many little foibles like that!Oh, and DO NOT write on my calender.  I don't throw that away, but there is a...
Tiddy - OMG...  I can't imagine how long it's taken to cut out a gazillion blossoms.  But such a lovely effect!  Can't wait to see the whole thing.   Newstreet - I wouldn't deliver the day before.  In fact, I like to find out what time the guests are due at the venue and then deliver about an hour before.  I like the room to be as set up as possible so that there's less chance of some Herbert knocking into the cake table and causing an accident!!!  (plus there's the...
This made me laugh... hope no-one is offended!   A SHORT... BUT BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY A man and a woman who had never met before, but both of whom were married to other people, found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a transcontinental train. Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly, he in the upper berth and she in the lower. At 1:00am, the man leaned down and gently woke the woman...
Hiya   I've had a quick shifty at the new messages since I last posted.   Some gorgeous cake pics!!    Tiddy - sorry to hear you're still not well.  I hope the docs can help with your headaches.   I've had a cake-free week.  I was going to get ahead and do some prep for cakes I've got coming up in the next few weeks.  But have I?  Have I heck!  Mrs Procrastination - that's me!!  I'll regret it later, of course.
Such a pretty birdcage cake!  You must be thrilled with it...  I'm sure your sister will be!!!
