Happy birthday to my baby boy, he turned 8 today. He awoke all excited about what the day might bring. He enjoyed all his presents, even though I struggled with what to get him and in the end rushed out to get a few small bits and pieces just to pad things out. He ended up liking all the items I got him, even the fillers! My family came over for a smorgasboard lunch and gave him more gifts, he loved them all too! He requested a shop bought caramel mudcake (I'm not THAT bad a cook!) which I decorated like a cricket pitch, which he wanted. I also took the opportunity to make a yummy looking cookies and cream cake I'd been eyeing off since I saw the recipe in a supermarket catalogue. We were planning on eating out at a smorgasboard restaurant tonight, just the 4 of us, but we are all still full so have postponed that until lunch tomorrow. I will make him his favourite meal tonight instead, fettucini carbonara. Then we'll watch a movie of his choice or play a game or something.
