Hot Right Now

(Psst......Can I just say the below post has taken all day to write, in between dealing with pesky kids, chores and a spot of sun bathing. I started it at 9am, it's now 3pm.........)

It's hot today. Like proper bo baking hot and it's only 9am. I've been up since 5am with Sweet Child who decides she likes that time of day to sing loudly (and badly) at the top of her voice.

So we came downstairs early, I watched bad Channel 5 films which I'd recorded for moments like this, and now at 9am I am ready for lunch.

Everyone else has just come down for breakfast. It's kinda awkward. Wish I had some brunch. I could murder eggs and bacon right now.

So onto Cherry Tree treasures. I took three bagfuls of clothes to a charity shop and found this gorgeous Rochas outfit for Sweet Child while I was in there, it's too cute and frilly and everything I love about girlie clothes.

It was only £1.50 and so was this gorgeous dress.

She has just discovered the toy TV and loves it!

I barely look for Cherry Tree clothes for me these days, its all about the baby. The clothes are nearly always brand new or barely worn, dead cheap and there are some lovely brands out there if you search.

In other news, the Prince turned five on Thursday and we threw him a little party yesterday. He only wanted six boys, he wanted a football and Star Wars theme and he wanted a square chocolate cake.

But I decided to try a football pitch, to fit in with his theme.

Cake baking isn't my forte and I shall leave it there. Rest assured I will buy one next year. Kids just don't appreciate the effort at that age. They don't care whether Marks & Spencer or Mum made it.

"So is it a good bake?" I kept demanding.

Everyone just mumbled through their cake holes, I think it tasted OK, and hopefully better than it looked.

There were lots of traditional party games, all the boys attacked the Husband with their light sabres and I think a good time was had by all (except possibly the Husband, due to said light sabre violence).

It's going to be a beach day today. I love a coastal breeze when its warm.

Oh and finally, I wean the baby in two weeks time, when she will be 6 months old. How can she be 6 months old?

She is still the cutest dolly, more vocal and has a sense of humour already. I am more than smitten and I have made some great friends since having her which is a huge bonus.

There are plans in place to go to the mum and baby cinema session next week, baby yoga, walks to the sea and lunches out. It's definitely been the most pleasant maternity leave I've had. Having a baby by the sea totally rocks.

Oh back to the Prince and being five, here he is from the start. Where it all began.

A day old
A year old

Turning two

Now we are three

Hitting the big 4

Can't believe he's five. Opening his first football kit! THE JOY!!!
Absolutely love his face in this!
 Aw, maybe I will turn out another bake for his 6th birthday next year. Soggy bottom or not.
