Happy Birthday LummyLonglegs!

Evening

Oh yes (said in best Churchill the dog voice) tis the turn of No1 son to have a birthday - seems the first 1/4 of the year involves an awful lot of cake making and decorating. Now the old brain cells are struggling at the moment and it took me a while to find any inspiration for what to put on his cake. However during a rare dusting session I happened upon a tub of magnets which get used very rarely now by small visiting people.  After a quick rummage I came up with enough letters for this;

The squirrel is a current injoke which was started by school friends and has spread.

One happy smiling face as he gets to blow the candles out;

Annoying parent in the background ;)

He was also smiley this morning whilst he opened his pressies - a snazzy new camera, tickets for a comedy show (Tim Vine) and good selection of sweets, clothes and money. Its been tested fully - taking a new facebook profile pic;

He keep trying to take pics of me too - testing out all the fancy settings;


We are off out on Sunday for a birthday meal somewhere and so the money that's currently burning a hole in his wallet can be invested and boost the high streets takings - I think I shall leave him to do that alone and go and investigate some far nicer shops - really the Apple Store and Top Man do nothing for me - give me Paperchase & White Stuff ;)

Thanks for the comments on his room - if you say its tidy then I shall believe you - am sure big son would too after all the last thing he wants to do is too tidy up when he could be slaying dragons or messing around with his new camera. I really don't think I should comment on his muddle having spent ages this morning looking for something in our room - it was there, just buried under a heap of clean washing waiting to go away!!

Oh the postie appeared today with a parcel for me - my Spread the Bloggy Love Swap parcel from Sue - I've opened the outer layer but the parcels are now hidden up until Monday;

Ok so my spotty conservatory table wasn't the best place but the light here today has been truly awful - here's hoping the sunshine comes out tomorrow.

See you soon

Love the cake! Cola bottles are one of my (ahem) guilty pleasures - yummy!

You are being good, keeping your swap parcels for Monday. I know others haven't been so good, so I definitely think you should give your halo a polish!! Looking forward to seeing what you've got! x

Awww a Happy Birthday to your wee man. How cool that we have youngsters with the same birthday.
His cake looks great :D

Oh and his room - if my 16 year olds room looked like that I would burst with happiness - I have forgotten what colour her floor is and now just hand her clean sheets etc to change the bed as I refuse to play 'walk the mine field' to get to the bed. LOL
