A Big Birthday!

 My big boy Archie turned 10 yesterday. It is funny how the blog often goes quiet for a few days before an event like this hits.... Too much time spent baking and scheming methinks.
I included this photo of the cake just to show that not every cake is an amazing 6 tiered rainbow cake or  crenellated castles replete with jelly moats. Sometimes they are fall apart chocolate cakes grouted back together with icing. And it is always such a relief to see them all eaten with the exact same amount of gusto.
 10 year old boys can even light the candles on their cake!!!
 Such a milestone!
 By the way, this is Archie's new jumper that was knitted by his Gran Gran. It is incredible and is particularly cool with his teal skinny jeans and purple sneakers. 
Lots of love,
Kate xxooxx.
p.s. These school holidays we have decided to make life a little more low-tech... unfortunately this includes me which may mean that blogging will have to occur on the down low.... if I can sneak it in.

  6. Happy Birthday to Archie :-) Fall apart chocolate cakes are always the best, they have to be in my house lol. I must admit though that my daughter does more baking than me, she does a mean Lemon Drizzle cake :-) Rowen@Coastal Colours x
