Me on Monday - 2 March

Mmmmm birthday cake ...

oops, caught in the act ...
We had an early birthday celebration weekend over here for my son and just because you get to be 25 doesn't mean you're too old for your mum to cook you a birthday cake.  Covered in your favourite sweet things, Cadbury finger biscuits, fudge squares, M&Ms and Galaxy counters. It was lovely to see him, he had to come home in advance of the big day as he's off to Paris for a few days with his girlfriend for his actual birthday and one of his presents was Euros for spending in France.  I hope he spends them wisely, if he dares to come back with a beret, a stripey t shirt and a string of onions ...
So after a stressful morning at work, I think I deserve a bit of chocoholic sustenance. Oh yes, it's the day that primary school children hear which secondary school they've been allocated.  I had over 120 letters ready to be posted out to unsuccessful applicants.  I think my phone's going to be ringing off the hook tomorrow.  Must remember to take cake energy food into work for elevenses.
The weekend was busy, there was lots of cooking to be done to make sure that the birthday boy got some of his favourite foods for dinner, presents to wrap, kitchen brochures to be scrutinised, rugby to be watched (bad result), football cup finals to be watched (even worse result),dogs to be walked, then dogs to be bathed. 
Well, that's the first March Me on Monday - let's give a wave to Sian She's telling tales of astronauts, expanding gardens and librarian tendancies!

Ooh, that sounds stressful enough for a complete cake fest..all those envelopes? Gulp.

Happy Birthday to your boy!

The 20th birthday cake here is on a promise. A Malteser cake he has requested for his return.

That cake looks delicious Deb. I hope the next day was not too stressful for you, I used to work in a school so I know how it can be.

How can you possibly keep that in your house and not have it devoured?! ...though I'm guessing after all those irate parents, there's not much left of it now?! Xx

Not envying you those phone calls :(. Hope that delicious cake, or whatever else you have with you, helps. It looks scrumptious. And what a nice Mum who still goes to all the effort :).
