Daisy's birthday party and a catch up!

Hi everyone

Well I can't believe that the summer holidays are over and it's back to nursery tomorrow. Back to routine and getting ready to be out the door in the morning. Daisy's birthday being on the 1st September means she will do another year of nursery before starting school. 

Yesterday was her birthday party. She'd asked for a tea party, so we put on our pretty dresses and decorated with balloons and bunting. Daisy invited a few little friends from nursery so I did a simple table of party food for little ones...


Everything here is dairy free so Daisy could enjoy anything she chose. 
Here's a few more photos from yesterday...








Here's a catch up in photos...



I made the pastry less quiche again but added mushrooms and spinach. 


Making time to paint my nails...


New things for Henry...I love mothercare!


New things for Daisy...Autumn preparation is underway!


New dresses for nursery...


I love this dress from little bird by Jools Oliver...


Cottage pie...


Flowers from my husband 


Rainy day fun...




New cardigans in the Lindy Bop sale for Daisy. I also bought myself some new dresses because they were so reasonably priced in the sale.


We had a new carpet fitted in Daisy's new bedroom! She's very happy with it.


A Cath Kidston delivery for Daisy...


And for Henry...


Gammon, mash, veg and parsley sauce!


Homemade chocolate sponge and chocolate custard...


I made the other chocolate sponge into a teatime cake...

Happy Birthday Daisy!

Hi everyone 

I'll catch up soon. Been so busy here! So just a quick post about today...

Today is Daisy's 4th birthday! We've had a lovely day. We bought Daisy her first bicycle so naturally needed to test it out! 



The sun was shining and we had a gentle stroll (ride for Daisy) around the reservoir. This was followed by a late lunch in the cafe there. 

Today has been a memory making kind of day :) happy times.

Now the party preparation begins!

Back soon
