Every Friday morning my children’s school are holding coffee mornings for each class in the year to showcase their work and what they are up to that week! I am helping out every week by baking the cakes and then helping out on the actual mornings, we did one before the holidays and I made a chocolate fudge cake and I made a carrot and walnut cake and a Victoria sponge (I don’t have a picture of this one though as one of the teachers took it for herself haha!)
Do in preparation for today – although I should be revising– I had a baking evening yesterday. I fully intended on it being a baking day so I could relax the evening as I had my exam today but the school asked me to help with their sponsored walk in the morning and the weather was so nice that we went for a day out at the local river for a picnic and football so I was baking from 7pm when the kids went to bed till 12.30am this morning making lemon drizzle cake, coffee and walnut cake and carrot cake!!
I can add recipes if anyone would like them 🙂 and if anyone has any yummy cake recipes please link me to them!! I am hoping to change it up every week!
It has been a while since I have joined in with Wicked Wednesday’s but I love it so I have no idea why I stopped! It’s a great way to embarrass our kids and remember it forever ;)!
This week on the way to Morris Dancing I let the big kids go on their scooters so Harry asked to go on his bike! Little did I know that he would rather push and carry that bike than actually ride it!! It took us AGES to get there!
With my birthday just 2 weeks away I have been thinking about my birthday as a mum and that it is so much different than when I was a child, or even when I was an adult pre babies!! I used to look forward to my birthday, having a day where I got completely spoilt and waited on hand and foot – now I have three little people that demand attention throughout the day too and make me do things for them 🙂
I wouldn’t have it any other way and I know the other 364 days of the year would be completely boring without them – plus the extra cash that we used to spend on our birthdays now goes on three other special birthdays throughout the year so it is just impossible to do something. But I do still spoil hubby on his birthday – he does so much for us and he works hard for me to be able to stay at home with the kids and never asks for anything in return so I do like to spoil him with little tea parties on his birthday and little gifts.
Although birthdays are different, they seem to be that extra but more special! Lily is super creative and every year she will come out of school the last school day before my birthday and say “You can’t look in my bag today mum” and the morning of my birthday I will always wake up to breakfast in bed (whatever we have in the cupboard that the kids what to make for me – with hubby of course) and that special card that Lily has made specially for me in school it makes my morning. Then normally hubby is in work and the kids are in school and my day continues as normal – there is the odd occasion that it is on the weekend but hubby still works so it is just like a normal day but of course I have the kids at home too!
Things have been super quiet on the blog recently!! I have an exam on Friday to end my 2nd year of my uni course and it is a major stress right now! I have hardly read half of the books and I really need to crack on with the revising and there has been a half term since my last post on our Bank Holiday Weekend fun! I have a few posts that I have started and need to finish and I just need to get this exam out the way then I will be back finishing those posts and lots more!!
For now I will get back to the books!!
