Good morning! Thank you so much for all your wonderful birthday wishes. I was very touched π I had a great time (although there was a moment of migraine attack). Now, after just under a week of chilling out in general, I am back in the blog land proper.
Today I would like to show you some of the photos taken on my birthday. I made a Genoise birthday cake (from River Cottage Every Day
recipe) topped with lots of strawberries. It really was a success.
So super kindly, my friends got me a proper birthday cake as they thought I shouldn’t make my own BD cake and put candles π hehe. It was a little bit of a hard work blowing the candles… Wesley helped me a little towards the end (was he supposed to?). Can you see behind me in the photo that Wata is very subtly waiting to see if there are any food that he could eat from the table?
Since I have a mountain full of knitting books, this year I was give lots of baking books. Andrew and Angela gave me Bourke Street Bakery (BTW, this books is really amazing and I can’t wait to bake something from this book).
Wesley gave me lots of running gears. They are all very useful and this has equipped me properly for next week’s run π Now I can listen to my iPhone while running and drink my special energy water using this doughnut bottle!
Usually Kumo steals Wata’s toy but this time Wata got to the new toy first. Now it’s his and he is really proud and happy. Thank you so much for all your kind heart. Both my cats and I had a wonderful day… π
