Day 5

Dad's 70thToday my amazing Dad hit the ripe old age of 70 – I still think he is looking pretty young!

We had a little party for him. These days it feels like we should seize every opportunity to spend time together and celebrate the good things.

We had a fantastic night out at a local restaurant who could not have helped us more. Completely amazing…. and this fabulous cake topped off the evening.

So Dad, Happy birthday. You are truly an inspiration and we all love you very much… now onto Uganda for a trip with him and my sister to check out some This is Epic Charity projects. Amazing!

Birthday Chinese

Today is my birthday. 21 again of course!

This evening we went for a fantastic meal at a local Chinese restaurant with friend. It was lovely to eat non-Christmassy food, drink decent wine and cocktails and catch up with our friends. Happy days.

A year in pictures – Day 210

Party day

We had planned to have a little party in the garden at our house today but it has been absolutely torrential rain!

We decamped to my Dad’s house as he has a lovely spacious conservatory and a prize=winning garden that looks nice from inside!

The Little Miss had a lovely party and was happy to wear her party dress, accessorised in her own style of course!

2016 Project366 (Day 358)

Birthday walk

I have had the most brilliant birthday today – I think I enjoyed it even more than the big 4-0 last year maybe it was less of a big deal so it just felt lovely.

It has been the most beautiful day so this morning I walked to the beach and met my sister and cousin and the kids down there. We spend a good couple of hours walking the dog and the kids spent ages playing on the sand and jumping and rolling around. We then met my Dad for lunch at the local pub.

This evening The Mister and I went on the bus into town with my cousin Beccy and he husband Pierre to see my cousins band Clameur de Haro play. It was a fab night out and we even experienced the entertainment of the night bus home.

Thankyou for all your gifts, cards and best wishes. It has been a fabulous day!

2015 Project365 (Day 357)

Birthday girl

Today I reached the grand old age of 40. The date has been on the horizon for an entire year but to be honest I have been feeling fairly philosophical about it all!

I went out for lunch with my sister and her kids, and my Dad and The Mister and the kids and then I went and had my hair cut. It was fab to have a little bit of time to myself.

In the evening I had a party. I felt a bit like a drama queen insisting on having a party, especially as it is so close to Christmas but it was awesome to see so many people and to get the chance to catch up.

Of course the one person I wish could have been there is my Mum. 40 years ago today she brought me into the world and I would have loved her to be there to celebrate it me. Such is life though. I wore her locket so she was there in some way.

A massive thankyou to The Mister, my sister and my Dad for organising my party. It was fab and I appreciated it so much.

Such an awesome day and thanks to everyone who helped me to celebrate.

The Little MisterThree years ago today our lives changed in every way. This wonderful little boy made an appearance and he has continued to make us smile.

The Little Mister is funny and smart, opinionated and loving, kind and confident but shy around strangers and in situations he is unfamiliar with. He is becoming ever so chatty and I am starting to hear back the phrases I use with him all the time.

Happy birthday to my best boy. We love you so very much xxxx

2015 Project365 (Day 346)

Today you are 3

It has been such a busy day. I was up at 6.30am and was making egg sandwiches by 7am!

We had a party at my Dad’s house although he is actually in Madeira! The Little Mister had lots of friends over, we set up a big train track and I had made some little cupcakes which the kids decorated. We finished off with lunch and pass the parcel.

I can’t believe that my little boy is going to be three on Monday. Time has just flown by. He is such fun these days. He can be quite hard work at times but he is fun and smiley and loves jumping and running. He loves his little sister and his pussycats and nothing gladdens my hear more than seeing him and his Daddy snuggled up together in bed.

We are blessed so much and I am grateful for him and all that he teaches us. Life would certainly be less entertaining without him here! Love you Little Mister xxxx

Birthday cake

So, this is my attempt this year at a birthday cake for The Little Mister.

It’s certainly a rather mediocre attempt and next time I make one of these I will used ready rolled icing!

I hope he likes it though as his party is tomorrow! Can you guess what the theme is?

2015 Project365 (Day 209)

Birthday MissToday was The Little Miss’ first birthday.

Unfortunately I had to work but this evening we went for dinner with my Dad, sister, niece and nephew and my aunt and uncle, We had a lovely meal and it was so nice to spend some time together.

I cannot believe that a whole year has past since she made a swift and early arrival into this world. She is getting really funny and her character is developing really fast. I love to see her and her brother together. They really do adore each other, even if they also batter each other around the head a bit!

She really has completed our family and I am so grateful that we we have her in our lives. I so wish my Mum was here to see her though – Mum would have absolutely adored her!

So happy birthday to my beautiful baby girl. Your sweet smiles and happy giggles have made our hearts sing. Your presence in our world has reminded us that life goes on, that we have so much to live for and that we must be grateful for every single day we have.

Birthday cake

One of my jobs today was to make The Little Miss’ birthday cake. I was going to make a bog standard sponge but decided to ice it with some flowers.

I think it turned out OK although it isn’t very 1-year-old appropriate! I am sure there is plenty of time for cakes where I have to be more creative!
