This was Princess Five's birthday cake. Please ignore the toaster in the background, only remembered to take a picture a the last minute. Please also refrain from commenting on how I've inadvertently given her the icing version of a Madonna cone bra. Didn't do that on purpose, I swear it.
This is Cherub Two's birthday cake. Okay, so after the creative masterpiece of the dolly cake the heart shaped two is a bit of a let down. Something better for her next year. At the moment she's impressed by the mere presence of cake. I could have served her anything and she would have squeeled with delight.
And THIS is what I did for myself for MY birthday. I finally managed to get myself an e reader and it's all red and pretty so I'm totally in love with it. I have been downloading books like mad, although I'll still be reading them into the new year I'm sure. But I LOVE this thing. Portable e books, hip... Access to cheaper backlist titles hip... Reading digital while curled up in bed... Hooray!!!
After all that cake and the takeaway consumed over the moving period, I put on 3kg. Gulp. So I've been back on my healthy eating plan for three weeks and have been doing fairly well. Thought I'd lost heaps only to discover my old mechanical scale is weighing me about 2kgs under what I actually am. Nice of it. Unfortunately the jeans don't lie.
This was just this morning. Halfway through a packet of cornflakes the Princess decides she'd rather have Weet-bix after all. As nothing goes to waste around here, I made cornflake cookies. There was enough to fill the whole tin when I made them but now the supply is looking pretty sad indeed. I'd been doing so well on that diet too...
