Painting The Cake Red!

I am a doormat in a world of boots - Jean Rhys
I woke up earlier than I normally do during the week! I left Sleeping Beauty to have a lie-in. I had things to do!
I had the cup of tea....
Sorted out the cloths for work for the final time!
I wrote out my son's Birthday Card.
Hubby rose from his warm pit.
We had breakfast.
The Birthday Boy got up and opened his Birthday Cards. He had his breakfast.
Hubby dropped him off at work.
I got out Kenny and started to make his Birthday cake.
Once that was in the oven, I had some catching up with paperwork that had come during the week.
Hubby came back with a much needed coffee and bacon baguette.
We sat outside to eat it :)
Now to add some 17th Birthday Balloons to the bunting.
The cake was finished!
The Birthday Boy came home from work early.
He really liked the cake!
He brought back the hand I bought last week from Omega.
We had a special treat of ordering another Chinese Takeway.
I then had to carry on writing blog posts from last Sunday.....
I watched two episodes of "Dragon's Den" while doing so.
I will write the remaining two blog posts brain was closing down on me.....
Sleep tea time!
Another Birthday to celebrate at the end of the month!
(Not forgetting Father's Day a week on Sunday!)
Now to enjoy the bed!

We caught up with Law and Order season 11 for the week.Only to find the ending was being cut off!!! Before we could see if they were been found innocent or guilty. We are going to watch it off Universal TV channel instead, as it is showing Season 11 as well as 5*USA channel.
 The new curtains in our bedroom are looking nice and keeping the bedroom warm.

Getting The P-A-R-T-Y Started!

Welcome to the 28th June.
My youngest son is 13 years old tomorrow.
Loads more sunshine, and cake to make
 While the final 3 sponges were in the oven.
I added some bunting to the garden, all ready for tomorrow...
 Sat in the shade to enjoy the sunshine!
 Pumped up the balloons...
Had a quick cup of coffee before adding chocolate frosting to the small 9 cakes..
(Which have been coloured in the colours of the German flag) 
 Needed a cold drink as the chocolate was melting...↓↓
 I finished decorating the 9 small cakes.
The big cake needed decorating...
The heat from the oven and the hot weather was helping me with the chocolate....
I finally finished the cake.
Hubby pumped up the remaining balloons.
So while the soon to be teen-ager went to bed early. We added the balloons outside.
 All ready to P-A-R-T-Y tomorrow!
