It's that time of the year again, cake making and present wrapping. I think birthdays are so important for littluns and I always want to do my best so that they have some good memories and some presents that they love.

a tiara from granny!

 a beautiful dress from Nao.

This year I bought P a little sewing machine of her own, with a bag filled with felt and fabric and a box of buttons and pins and things. And a book with some great ideas for kids making. 

We made a bat together, you can see more of her makes over on my instagram.

I also made a ginormous cake with chocolate icing.

and I was up till midnight putting up party decorations and making a cake flag ; )

I went all out on the sprinkles this time!!

We had a lovely party with just a few of her bestest friends and lots of family too.

On her actual birthday we visited Tapnell farm which is a place that we know she loves.

 We had quite a bit of fun there,..

We met the wallabies and the meerkats too, ahhhh!
...and, we had the bouncy pillow all to ourselves, perfect.

I think we are all a bit knackered now! xxx

autumnal london

Time for a bit of a catch up as I lost my blogging mojo for a few weeks ; )
We have been on a family trip to London, all four of us. It was tough at times, but the littlest one was as good as gold. We had some work and bits to do as usual, but the rest of the time we just enjoyed being in the big city.

Little L is at the age where he eyes up everything we eat. He is eating really well now actually, no teeth yet.

We visited Kempton market, on a crispy bright day. The little paper bag she has got is full of old marbles that she found.

We bought this amazing Europe sign for our house!

...and this beautiful old map of Britain, getting a bit too political in our decor perhaps ; )

I bought a couple of these french newspapers for displaying our jewellery.

Toastie break...

I LOVE these enamelled cups and saucers I found.

After that we went to Chiswick house. I often mention the same places on my blog but I love looking back and seeing the tots grow each time they visit...its like time-lapse.

It's a really stunning garden and there is a great cafe and playground and a big pond with ducks too!

Nao took P to the leather workshop and leather wholesaler where he has his leather goods made up. She loves going there!

We also went to the London Aquarium. May have to re-mortgage the house to pay for the entrance fee though : |

It was amazing in there though, little L squeaked and giggled all the way through it!

Some more posts coming up shortly! (hopefully)
