Birthday bliss

Nothing like the excitement of a birthday - even if it's not yours! A card was carefully picked out (oh lordy it was sooooo 'old school' that I found myself repeating "is that the one you want to get for Dad?" over and over again). Messages were written - she spoke, I scribed ('I love you Daddy. And I love fairies. Happy Birthday').

The rest of the day was spent baking, decorating, re-decorating, tasting, sampling, touching, checking and re-checking the chocolate cake she made for her Dad. Seriously, you'd think we'd never baked before the way she obsessed over today's little chocolate creation. Between her and the cat eyeing it off all day I am amazed that the cake actually made it to the table in one piece. But, it did and little Miss was kind enough to share the candle-blowing with her Dad. Mind you, she still tried to polish off his slice once hers was finished!

My Kiddo on Modern Kiddo

Here's my gorgeous little miss on one of my absolute favourite blogs Modern Kiddo. Unfortunately she has a slight aversion to the camera and will generally manage to contort that gorgeous face of hers into something quite hideous (usually coupled with the phrase "ooooh, no more photos"). Just glad she managed to resist her usual urge to poke her tongue out!

Welcome to my world!


Introductions are always a little tricky don't you think? Since I have absolutely no clue where to start (and don't want to bore you with mindless facts about myself - at least not to begin with anyway) I thought I'd simply share a couple of pics from my local 'hood. A fav little cafe of mine and the gorgeous bay where my little miss loves to ride her scooter (on the footpath obviously - not in the water).
