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...


Jelly and custard for Daisy 

Homemade sausage rolls...made by Daisy!

Another delivery, another dress! This one is from Next. I love smocking!! Daisy wore this one on her birthday.

More little bird clothes...

Now it's time to think about my Christmas preparations!! 

Finally, thank you to Jenny and Phyllis for your comments :)
