Charlie's Bird

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

What a Weekend!

…I am officially shattered. The weekend was a go-go-go all the time, with barely a minute to be still!

Friday, DrHF arrived after I was done at work, then it was off to Charlotte’s 7th birthday party. TJ was super clever and organised an arty party with a planner (what a bloody good idea!) and they children had a blast! They made Tshirts – the planner got them to draw a picture with wax crayons on a piece of magic paper (actually fine grit sandpaper) which she then turned over and ironed onto white Tshirts, worked like a charm, so each little girl got a special personalised shirt to take home! So cool! IMG_5146 Check out the cake I made for Charlotte, cool, huh!

Then Saturday arrived. It was really going to be a big day! DrHF and I started early at woolies getting the last few things, then, it was home to do the final prep – we baked and iced a batch of cupcake, (To the shops out there, I am going to have a moan about the need to keep cupcake wrappers round, not squished! I had a total mare trying to force the papers to stay in the muffin tray, a mare trying to get the batter into them, and then some of it willed, some went skew, argh!!!!) made plenty of fruit skewers, and then the decor and set up was on. I’m still waiting for the professional pictures, but I’ll share one or 7 of ours…
