This weekend we celebrated my 31st birthday!!
My lovely husband and Mia had planned a “fantasy tea party” on Saturday to celebrate. This was an idea they had come up with between them, the “fantasy” part referring to the cake. They were up bright and early and off to Tesco by 9.am and returned with a bag full of the most sweet, sugary but unbelievably delicious toppings and decorations, with strict instructions to myself not to peek!
They baked all morning, and produced a lovely jam and cream sponge, decorated with all of Mia’s “fantasy” toppings; white chocolate, milk chocolate, hundreds and thousands, strawberry buttons, cream, and the most lovely little chocolate rabbit and toadstool toppers;
We had a lovely tea-party with sandwiches and sausage rolls, and shared another of Mia’s creations; a hot melted chocolate, cream and curly wurly drink!;
I could only manage a few sips but it was very nice!! We sat in our cosy dining room, watching the rain beating on the windows, and were glad to be warm indoors!
I had a lovely day, and some beautiful cards and gifts;
Mia had bought me this beautiful little owl bookmark, this will come in very handy as I always have a book on the go;
I also had money from Hubby and the rest of the family to treat myself this Saturday as I’m off to the Builth Wells Antiques Fair…I’m very excited! I’m not after anything in particular, but it’s nice to think I’ve got a bit of extra money in my purse in case I see anything I fancy.
Finally, I want to say thank you to you all for such lovely comments on my last post, especially regarding my return to work. I have now been back for 2 days. We have found it hard, but Baby Boy appears to be having a lovely time!! (which is the main thing!) – he has a little playmate at the childminders, being her own 13 month old little girl, and was absolutely exhausted when he came home yesterday – which resulted in a good nights sleep! Just one more day of work tomorrow and then the rest of the week off, which I’m looking forward to.
I hope you are all having a good week, I'm just off to have another slice of that cake!
