And just like that the babe is two, where did the time go? Whilst I mourn the passing of another year, the birthday celebrations and joy that they bring makes me forget my own woes.
Little Stanley had a wonderful birthday, we made him a balloon curtain which he just loved and has played with all day. His present was a trailer to go on the back of his favourite land rover (that was his Christmas present) it's a Britain's Big Farm toy, which are really life like and not extortionate prices. The cows are a bit plasticky but we can use our lovely Schleich farm animals instead.
His birthday cake this year was a bit of a short cut, with Easter and two birthdays close together and realising that I'm not supermum and just can't stay up all night baking, I bought a cheap supermarket gâteaux and hid it with an army of rabbits that were discounted Easter choc. It was a bit too chocolaty, if you can believe that is possible but was cheap, quick and easy to make.
His lovely godmother and grandparents came for afternoon tea, nice and simple and surrounded by his favourite people, it was a lovely day. Now onto birthday number two this week!
