June is always busy for us; there have been two birthdays - mine and (moving swiftly on) Tall Small's. This year her birthday fell on a Friday which meant that by the time we had had the day itself, and her party on Sunday, it ended up being a birthweekend - which is as it should be when you're turning 7.
Seven? Those tiny time thieves have been at it again.
Still, it was a good excuse for bracelet making:
(we watched Beverley Hills Chihuahua, and the (recyclable!) boxes were filled with iced flower biscuit lollies, headbands from Heather Ross' Weekend Sewing, and homemade matching hair bobbles - one button covering kit plus some cheapo Boots hair elastics.)
And, of course, cake scoffing:
I was really pleased with the way this turned out - it's Nigella's custard birthday cake with unadulterated Belgian chocolate on the top, and those lollies are inspired by Bakerella but made with this recipe. Glitter and coloured flame candles, naturally. Yuuuuuum.
