yet another birthday cake in the oven
The wedding went off very well although sadly every photo of me wearing the pipecleaner goggles somehow didn't work out. Funny about that. The bride looked beautiful, the groom handsome, and all the far-flung family gathered for the first time in about five years. It was a very very emotional day for many of us. Sadness in the midst of happiness oi vey. I tell you what though, dancing all night long at a wedding is the best form of exercise.
The eldest child turned 17 on St Valentine's Day and although I made a cake (with soccerball candles!) I had to rush out to a meeting (regarding the Unbloggable Ishews, which hopefully are on their way to being sorted out fingerscrossedohgodwehopeso) and when I returned I learned from the rest of the family that the cake had sunk in the middle and was almost inedible. Sigh. The candles were a hit though.
The youngest child turns 12 today! And to celebrate he is out playing a soccer match. Sigh. Meanwhile I am here sewing cushion covers for his classroom and baking another birthday cake which hopefully will not sink in the middle. Stupid recipe. We went out for a Devonshire Tea this afternoon to celebrate and he has requested Chinese food for dinner which means takeaway in this household. And more soccerball candles.
Don't forget there's still time to leave a comment on the giveaway post. I'll pull a winner out of the virtual hat at the end of next week.
