We are fast approaching the busiest time of year for parties in the lifetimeofdiy household. Here in Wales (not sure if it’s the same elsewhere?) the children who will be he oldest in the school year start school part time at 3. In little lady’s case it was those with birthdays between September and December. There were 10 that started and these 10 have become very close friends. As you can imagine little lady gets a number of party invites during this time. Plus we have 4 family birthdays before Christmas. It could be very expensive but we try to be sensible and limit our spending. Within the family a handmade card is the best present ever. We love all things handmade and would rather a homemade cake with fingerprints in the icing (baby D I am looking at you!) than a shop bought one.
The first birthday is my sister’s. Little lady calls her Anti. She has never added her name to the end like with the other aunties. She is just Anti. As a side note my brother is called Uncle 🙂 he doesn’t have a name attached to the end either 😉
So Anti’s birthday. Little lady and I made a cake. A pink cake.
