Look out, I’ve blogged! This post has been sitting in my draft file for the last 2 weeks, just waiting for me to bother uploading photos! Lets hope I can get back into this blogging gig.
Jairah turned 5 a couple of weeks ago. Such a happy, cheeky chappy he is. He certainly lives life to the fullest. He thoroughly enjoyed his day with a swimming lesson in the morning, followed by going to a local party shop to choose out balloons. He’d requested a green aeroplane cake, that seemed like a bit of a challenge, but I think I pulled it off (it’s from the Woman’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cake book). The cake itself was chocolate. I used Hopper’s natural colouring to dye the icing. They use natural extracts for the colouring. Their products are fantastic. He was pretty chuffed with the end result. I collected the girls early from school so we could have lunch together with my mum, before I had to drop her to the train station.
Jairah requested pizza for dinner and of course we had cake to end the day with. It was a very full day, but he didn’t stop smiling all day long. Presents were gleefully unwrapped and he had a lovely time playing with new toys and gadgets. He had asked for a robot toy, but in all my searching I couldn’t find the perfect robot friend, however, I remembered a while back that Jairah had spied a knitting pattern for a robot and had tried to walk out of the shop with it. I went back and thankfully they still had the pattern, now, lets see if I can get it finished before his 6th birthday!
