Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.

It’s Friday again

…let the good times begin. I just have to get through this work day, and then the weekend begins, and it is sure to be a busy one. On Sunday, Thandi is being christened (baptised/dedicated – whatever term you prefer), wearing her mom’s and uncles’ old christening gown. There is a lot of preparation to do, since our friends and family will be joining us for tea afterwards, and the service begins at 08h00! Oy! Early start for me. We have kept the top tier of our wedding cake, which has slowly been defrosting since Wednesday, and looks great, so that will be quite something to share with friends and family. I am planning some strawberry cupcakes; scones served with my strawberry jam, some fresh strawb’s and some savouries (sandwiches and the likes), so lots of kitchen time for me tomorrow, but all good therapy for a long year! There’ll also be some decorating, I’ve borrowed some bunting from MJ, loads of fresh flowers, some old vases and things from my birth, a nice vintage occasion. Sunday should be fun, now if the weather will cooperate, it’ll be perfect!

And what are you all getting up to this weekend?
