Next bit of chaos was my daughter's fourth birthday. My little nine pound baby is four years old and I'm having trouble believing it!
|Four days old and getting some big brother love.|
|And now four years old and getting some plastic fantastic Barbie love.|
|A whale cake for Daycare.|
|And a fairy toadstool cake for home.|
It was always a tradition in my family that we got to pick our favourite meal for dinner and I've carried this on with my kids. Miss Four's pick? Mince and pasta :-) Gotta love it!
Anyway, after that little busy patch was over I had my own birthday to contend with. No baking my own cakes or choosing my own special dinner - instead I hightailed it out of there and holed up in a cabin at Camp Waipu Cove for the weekend. I took a good book, my sewing machine and quilting projects, a bottle of wine and some yummy food.
I walked on the beach each day and spent the rest of my time sewing and reading. And I felt really refreshed when it was time to come home - my own little retreat.
Today, however, I'm on an enforced go-slow - hence the extra long blog post. I had day surgery yesterday (don't worry, it was minor, elective girly stuff) but it still required a general anaesthetic (blurg) and I'm a bit sore. I'm pottering around with the quilting projects I was working on on the weekend and hopefully I'll get some photos to show you where I'm up to.
Ciao for now.
