So another quickie update this week, as we’re going to watch The Walking Dead in half an hour or so!
It’s been a very busy week, but mostly because I’ve been making Lily’s cake every night after work. Monday was probably the quietest day of the week. I went to work but otherwise, the evening was spent chilling out with my friend Nat. Tuesday was work again and then I started on the first layer of Lily’s cake. More excitedly, I received my latest addition to my t-shirt collection.
Wednesday I continued with Lily’s cake in the evening, but I also made a chocolate caramel sandwich cake for someone I work with. It was their 30th birthday Thursday, so aside from 2 minutes of celebrating that at work, there wasn’t much else exciting happening then. I worked both daytime and evening on Thursday, so that felt like an especially long day.
By Friday I knew I had to get Lily’s cake finished as her party was Saturday. However mum had the kids and my brother was out for the evening, so Chris and I had somewhat of a date night. I got the cake finished (as you can see in my post here) and then took a bath. I used a hair stripper to finally get rid of all the black and I’m glad to say this actually worked!
Afterwards we treated ourselves to a M&S meal, where we had amazing steak followed by salted caramel cheesecake. We drank a bottle of wine and watched House at the end of the Street (it was awful!), snuggled up on the sofa.
Saturday I got up and made a few alterations to Lily’s cake, before taking Chris to work and then heading over to get the girls from mum’s house. We headed off to Lily’s party and I’m not going to lie, it was great. The venue was perfect and the organisers even better. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Lily dressed as Anna from Frozen and while I forgot to take a proper photo of her, she looked beautiful.
When we got home from the party, Lily opened all of her gifts and we wrote a list so that we could write thank you cards. We then spent the rest of the afternoon just chilling out and relaxing. I finished my February book “Love You More” and then we watched Ever After High and My Little Pony: Equestrian Girls on Netflix.
Sunday was busy but through choice and strangely that felt nice. After a bit of a lie-in, Chris headed to work and I blitzed the front room. It took me about 2 hours in total, but I hoovered and dusted thoroughly. It felt very satisfying! After lunch the girls and I headed upstairs to do their room. This was more tidying than cleaning but we blitzed their whole room too and that took about 3 hours in total. My mum called around briefly and at about 4pm we headed out to pick Chris up from work and grab a cheeky KFC again!
Sunday evening was perfect. We had a lovely dinner with the girls, laughed and giggled lots, before finally changing the bed covers on their bunk beds and then heading to bed. Chris and I sat and watched TV all evening, while I blogged a little and he rubbed my feet. Finally I started planning my next cake masterpiece, but unfortunately I can’t blog about that here!
I’m looking forward to a much calmer and quieter week this week. Lily’s birthday is on Wednesday but I’m all organised for that and so otherwise, it should be a fairly boring week!
