I guess you could say that I have been mostly missing in action this week. I am finally feeling a lot better and getting back on the blogging horse, but I still owe a lot of emails – apologies if you have not had a reply from me. I was really excited to have all the comments on my logos, I will be sure to keep you up to date when the committee chooses one for me to finesse, next month.
Thursday found me on my own for the afternoon (finally no sick children at home), and I managed to get my hair cut. I am pretty pleased with the result.
This is the shortest it has been in quite a while, (see here for a “before” from earlier in the year) and I am enjoying feeling lighter and bouncier!
This morning we had Amelia’s birthday party with her friends, which is a whole other post, but while on the topic of hair you have to check out this groovy do…..
Amelia has wanted a cake like this for a few years, and I think ours turned out even better than the Women’s Weekly Kid’s Cakes version.
Ours was certainly a team effort. I made the cake. Luke applied the skin, the collar and the eyebrow ring. I sculpted the facial features and all three kids applied the hair.
She was quite popular at the party, so hopefully I am on a roll, because this evening I will be icing a ladybird. Under strict instructions from tomorrow’s birthday girl (Michaela) I am going to make this ladybird pink, not red. I will be sure to post photos. After Michaela’s 3rd birthday tomorrow, life might return to some semblance of normal. Bring on Spring.
