Bella's birthday party is tomorrow (can you say 'excited' !!) but the two of us had a little party on her actual birthday.
Because I had been ill all weekend I hadn't been able to get out to get the bits and pieces that I wanted to decorate the house for her. So the night before I pulled out some vintage linens and tea sets, plus the bunting that I made for her first birthday and decorated for a pink tea party.
I also managed to make some chocolate cupcakes for her instead of a birthday cake (she's still unsure about the whole cake situation after not being able to eat it before).
Instead of tea I filled the tea cups with raisins, grapes and chocolates. And spread her pink wrapped parcels all around the kitchen.
When she came downstairs she was so shocked that she didn't want to go into the kitchen at first and just sat on the stairs (she's so much fun to decorate for).
After opening her presents and dancing around the kitchen (her, not me!), we spent the rest of the day playing with new toys and eating junk (me, not her).
On another lovely note, I've been the very proud recipient of a number of 'You Make My Day' Awards recently, but have been horribly slack in thanking the very kind people that have given it to me.
So thank you so much to:
I really appreciate it!
