This weekend consisted of cake, cake and more cake! Both my daughter and niece celebrated their birthdays. Megan turned 12 and my niece Olivia turned 4.

While we were at it, my partners birthday was last Tuesday, but as he is away during the week he thought he’d gotten away with it! But alas, he was surprised with a cake by my sister and also had to endure a rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ by everyone at the restaurant!

Megan had decided that this year she wanted to make her own cake and that she did! The heart shaped zebra-striped number was all the work of my gorgeous girl!

I’m still trying to come to terms with the fact I’m the mother of a 12 year old! Many of you will know that she has ASD and makes me so proud with what she overcomes and achieves every day.

Sunday was the turn of my beautiful niece Olivia. She is a born star and makes us laugh so much. My sister is a singer and studied musical theatre at university. This little one is a chip off the old block and loves nothing more than belting out a number from Wicked, Frozen or her all time favourite Mary Poppins. She knows all the words, dances and does all the the accents and I’m so glad that she loves this film as it’s one of my favourites. Her birthday cake was a masterpiece and made by one of my sisters friends. It was worth every single penny as she was delighted! The theme continued with a custom made Mary Poppins dress and a plush doll bought by moi!

I’m so proud of all our children (and of Tim who does his best to stay out of the limelight – the photo above is very rare!).
What little that was left of rest of the weekend was spent cuddled up on the sofa, watching the F1 and films. We’re all exhausted now but it was most definitely worth spending time as a family. Due to Tim’s job, time together is short and precious and he’s not usually able to attend family days / evenings out.

I hope you all had fun aswell! 🙂

    What a lovely cake Megan made – she is very clever !!!! And I love the Mary Poppins cake too – I bet Olivia squealed when she saw it !!!
    Partners who work away are very special people – it's hard being away from your loved ones for long periods of time – just as it's hard for those left trying to run the family home.
    So glad you got to share these birthdays together. Have the best day !
