He had a ball with his little friends and we had a great time catching up with their parents.
See, it is so well-loved, it is in pieces!
My mum gave me this book when Miss Butterfly was born as this was the one all mine and my brother and sister's birthday cakes were cooked from. It is so lovely to look through it each time there is another birthday and remember all the other birthdays for which the different cakes have been made.
The cake Cuddlepie chose was also the one I made for Miss Butterfly's first birthday, nearly 20 years ago!
It was a cold day here today, so the party was indoors. It was lovely to see all the kids just having fun playing. I didn't organise any games or activities, no bouncy castles or magicians, just plain old-fashioned playing! It is astonishing to me how competitive parents have become with birthday parties - it seems sometimes it is not even about the birthday child any more, but about doing one better than the last party.
We had a lovely time, and once everyone was gone and the noise had died down, the dog felt comfortable coming inside.
