Katie’s birthday and Ryan’s show







Well she loved the cake and loved dismantling it and eating it too!! Just had to share the beautiful photos of my 3 daughters as well as my beautiful grandaughter. We went on from our meal to see Ryan in his production at the Hawth and he won a trophy for his overall commitment and improvement. He was so good in the show too, so it rounded off a lovely day.

Katie’s Princess castle cake


I made this for Katie’s 6th birthday today and hope she likes it! It was a labour of love but I am pleased with how it turned out. We are having a birthday meal later for her and she has no idea what the cake looks like so I can’t wait to see her face!

Rottingdean Beach






The grandchildren had an INSET day yesterday so despite it being cloudy my DD said it looked better at the coast, so we headed for Rottingdean which is a gorgeous little beach. We arrived and it was so blowy and cold and covered with sea mist so we sat in the car and ate our picnic and by the time we had finished, the mist had cleared and the sky was glorious. We sat on the beach for 4 hours and had it all to ourselves. It was Liam’s first experience of sand and the sea and seagulls which fascinated him!! He loved every minute of it and even ate his strawberries with sandy hands (my DD had cleaned them but there was the odd bit!!) He did not stop for one minute and wore himself out, so much so by the time we put him in his seat in the car, he just closed his eyes and went to sleep!!

Liam’s 1st haircut



Liam had his hair cut last night. All his little curls have gone – well most of them are in Mummy’s, Nanna’s and Grandad’s keepsake boxes now!! He was so good and looks like a proper little man now and even more like his Daddy!
