Happy Birthday 'Sweet' 16!!

Good afternoon

Yep another birthday! This time its big sons and he's reached the milestone of 16 - sweet in his own very special way!!

One cake has been made and is awaiting his return much later today;

A continuation of this years chocolate cake and icing theme!!

The day started early, very early - this early (note the light on the AM bit);


Why?? A school trip - a GCSE History revision day at a University in London - they were leaving school at 6.30am prompt - so we were awake early for big son to get showered, fed, down a couple of cups of coffee and open some cards & pressies too.

We've even got to wait till early evening till we can sample the cake!!

Not heading out tonight instead we are off for a meal tomorrow - someone is looking forward to being allowed a pint of cider with his curry!!

Have a good weekend all - I shall be avoiding the ice and staying in with the rugby and a basket of body parts to turn into mini-raggies!

See you soon

fab cake. I too am avoiding the outside as i have picked up a nasty virus. I have no energy and no appetite. I am sure the cake will taste as good as it looks.

Happy Birthday - I haven't sent a card because a) I really didn't think he would notice if I did or not!
and b) am only making essential trips out on icy roads.
Actually, it is much better today and much less slippy.
Maybe we should make a date for coffee next week?

five minutes ago I thought that having a 16 year old was hundreds of years away. Now it's just around the corner. HOW?!
Enjoy your celebrations.
Now, curry and a pint of cider? Mmmmmm!
