Our first born is 15 years old today:
H has had money for his gift and as such is richer than us (which isn't hard!!) In the box is a selection of junky sweetie treats as otherwise he wouldn't have had anything to open.
This afternoon H and Daddy (love that we're still Mummy & Daddy!!) went to spend a bit of his money on a new hard drive for H's PC and H got a KFC for his lunch. Next week we're going to The Warner Brothers Studios to tour the Harry Potter sets so that's the proper treat.
This afternoon I baked Mary Berry's chocolate obsession cake:
I will regretfully not be showing the finished article as although delicious the cakes have proven unmanageably crumbly and I have had to polyfilla them together with chocolate buttercream. Pretty they ain't!!
Crafty-wise I have been drawing more sketches and after our neighbour gave me a large canvas she was about to take to the tip W requested I do a picture Ezio from Assassins Creed!!:
Despite being a bit out of proportion W was chuffed with it!!
A dear friend got married last Friday (will do a separate post about that) so I have been crocheting a little garter for her:
Whipping up one of my home embroidery portraits as a wedding gift:
I added the address as finishing touch to this one but have blocked it out for privacy hence the grey blob!!
And making both a red petticoat (photo of that to come in next post) and a red anemone fascinator:
We have more celebrations to come next week as our youngest W becomes a teenager on Sunday!!
Hope you're all well, thanks for reading....
