Birthday week


Abbey had a lovely birthday, a special birthday lunch out at our fav Taste of Country Garden Cafe'.

It has been a birthday week of celebrations. She started the week off with a friend staying the night in a POSH hotel in Wellington - it even had a pillow menu.



 They had fun with room service and were surprized with mocktails being delivered to their room by her godmother.  They made lots of memories! Plus of course her highlight of publishing her first knitting pattern.


Birthday tea was salmon fillets and salad, A toblerone cheesecake as her cake and desert  Well it is her 21st so a special treat. Interestingly enough when you don't usually eat cakes and puddings your taste buds do change and you do notice how much you actually don't miss them.


James eats his pudding/cake in style - right out of the packet with dairy free chocolate shavings.


A quite night at home playing Catan - a much loved board game by our family. We all get a tad competitive at times.


Farm Stay Guests...
 There was no witnesses to this vandalism. 

"Nope, it wasn't me" said Sterling - 'I don't recall doing that" said Coco and Omar said "It must have been a stray cat that did it".

  1. Great to see the Birthday week has gone well! Yummo, a Toblerone Cheesecake does sound good! Cats do have a knack for acting all innocent don't they?!

    1. Yes very innocent indeed. To think they have a scratching pole inside plus a centre wooden pole to scratch on - but no they wanted the corner of their chalet. CATS!

  2. Happiest of 21st birthday wishes to Abbey. So glad she had such a great time time with her friend. The pillow menu made me laugh, but then it was a swanky hotel so they should cater to your every need. Congratulations go out to Abbey for publishing her 1st original knitting pattern. I love the design & everything else about those socks. The color of the yarn is so rich & luscious. Abbey should be so proud of her accomplishment & I am sure this is just the start with many more patterns to come.

    Oh my! A first I thought maybe a bear had clawed your wall, but then I scrolled down to see your kitty guests were the likely culprits. Someone gave their claws quite a workout on your poor wall. No treats or mince for any of the guests until the guilty party comes forward & takes responsibility for the dastardly deed (good luck on that).
