Today was my dad's birthday. I often struggle when it comes to making cards for my dad... not this time! I knew straight away what I wanted to do. It was the perfect opportunity to practise some paper cutting without feeling that I was indulging myself, and as his birthday present was a new wheelbarrow, so the card had to be allotment related.
It was quite a bit more adventurous than the card that I did for the Fairy's birthday, and although the writing caused me a few problems (it was too small, and therefore too fiddly), I thoroughly enjoyed doing it.
And then there was the cake. I love to make cakes, as you have probably already noticed, but this week I have simply made too many, and eaten to many pieces! This was delicious though... a simple sponge filled with jam, cream and strawberries. Yum!
The little Tinker is beginning to think it is a daily task, asking today if he can make another. I think it will have to be bread I will be making with the children over the holidays rather than cake otherwise I am going to end up being huge by the end of the summer!
