I was spoilt for 4 days for my 30th Birthday this year! It all started with a Harry Potter mud cake at work and my favourite chicken & mushroom risotto for dinner shared with 5 of my favourite Duncan boys. Stu also made a chocolate tart with butterscotch sauce and double cream. It was delicious.
The Motbey's had a shared party with Oscar and Uncle Mike. We had a party food feast.
Jack had a terrible night with pain in his ear. His ear drum burst in the morning but after a full day of antibiotics he was feeling well enough to party on Saturday night.
Th highlight of the party was a margarita machine. Everyone came with masks, Stu made ribs and chicken wings. We drank margaritas till midnight and still had some left for the next day.
Jules made the Masquerade cake and it was a masterpiece. I was wondering why I waited 9 years since the last birthday party I had so I've already put the margarita machine on hold for next year!
Here is a portrait of my 4 year old preschooler. His teacher says he loves to learn and he is always sitting up the front and asking good questions. I have been so proud since his Dad went away that he has been dressing himself, feeding the dog and helping clean up after dinner. He has grown 5cms in the last 6 months and his teacher tells me he is certainly ready for school.
It makes me a bit sad that I am letting him go. 5 whole days a week! I won't be there to hug him when he falls or open his popper juice so that it doesn't spill. Who will his friends be and what will he learn? It's still 6 months away but it seems too soon. When did my baby get to be so tall?
