The boy's birthday

Apologies to begin with that I abandoned the blog yet again for a holiday.  We've spent a week in Devon with my family and friends.  We've had a lovely time, but the days just seem to rush by.  We managed to spend a week in a seaside resort without once making it to the beach!  As for train rides lasting over eight hours with a baby and toddler in tow... regular snacks for toddler are essential.  I found the trip down relatively easy, though neither of them slept.  Little C was good as gold.  The return journey, after a week of disrupted sleep routine, when all three of us were tired, was less successful, but we all made it back in one piece and on time - without upsetting any of our fellow passengers, so it can't be all bad.

Anyway, skip back a week and a half to the birthday:

My Little C has turned two!

He came downstairs to find this from mummy and daddy and Little Sister - 
and these presents too - 
and spent the day playing with them and making cake - 

For birthday tea it was just the family, and we had Little C's choice of sausage and chips from the chip shop, followed by our home-made cake - 
What a lovely relaxing day!  I think all the demanding what cake/party/presents they want comes later, so for now we're just keeping it simple and enjoying his delight at his "Happy Birthday".


  1. It sounds and looks magical! Despite my birthday cake angst I am so excited about Mr Small's birthday party this weekend. I can't wait to see his little face.

  2. Love and hugs to you alllll :) x x x x x
