It has been school holidays this week and we have had a pretty nice time. It has been lovely for me because I had a week's annual leave, it has been so nice to not think about work, and it has been a special week for Charlie because it was her 16th birthday yesterday. The day started with a full-on breakfast of hash-browns, bacon, breakfast sausages and eggs, then she and a friend went to a local pottery studio and painted a plate each. The day finished with dinner out at a restaurant. Charlotte shares her birthday with my two sisters, who are twins, so one of my sisters and her family joined us for dinner. Instead of a birthday cake I made an easy version of cake pops, using mini cupcakes, which Charlie loved. Happy birthday sweet Charlotte, I'm glad you had such a special day!
The week has been pretty wet so one of the days Charlie treated us to her delicious home-made fudge and I let the kids choose a DVD each. Movies and fudge, just the thing for a wet day! I also got some sewing done this week so I will share that once I get some photos of it, Wendy xx
