How was your weekend/Monday?
As its birthday season here in the VV household, ours has passed in a mix of celebrations, cake making (again) and pressie wrapping. Its the smallest member of the households birthday today - little son has reached a new milestone - he's become a teenager. I think I started something when I made him a loud cake last year - had to think of something different for this birthday;
A mix of fondant icing, blue butter icing and a huge selection of his favourite sweets - lets just say the sugar high will be over by next weekend!!
Rewind to yesterday - in order to celebrate the 2 birthdays in the past week, we headed off out to our favourite carvery for Sunday lunch (think we did the same last year - we're creatures of habit) - here's the birthday boys with their overloaded plates - for once MrVV was defeated by a meal (a very rare occurrence);
Afterwards we headed to Southwold for a walk and a play on the arcades - big son had us in stitches as he attempted to "cross the motorway with a zimmer frame";
This morning started early - one excited new teenager who had no idea what he was getting from us - lucky little devil got a rather shiny new bike;
In between cake decorating, housework, sewing and watching 'Land Girls' this afternoon, I've managed to fit in a rather soggy cycle into town - found a couple of cracking bargains in the charity shops - but I'll share those next time.
