This weekend the family was at home, except the youngest member as she was away for a much needed break.
The reason for this gathering was the 30th birthday of eldest daughter. How did I get to have a daughter that old?!
She didn't want a big celebration, she just wanted the family together, along with her partner.
On Friday night we sat round chatting, just enjoying being together. Oh and some alcohol was consumed!
On Saturday we had a party lunch. This was made up of all the things we used to have at birthday teas when the children were small. You know the sort of thing, all the unhealthy stuff you don't let them eat the rest of the year. In the evening we had a take-away and some more alcohol was consumed, although not to much.
The thing that she enjoyed most I think was the birthday cake. I had asked her if she wanted anything in particular and she said she wanted the same cake that she had on her 3rd birthday.
So I spent Thursday evening baking it and Friday morning icing it, this is what she wanted.
He tasted really good, a piece was saved for youngest to enjoy when she gets home and the rest that was left after we had all tried it went back to Norwich. Bet he doesn't last long!
We had a lovely weekend and we will all be together again in a few weeks time for Christmas, minus the hedgehog.
Have a good week.
