Like the Queen, this year Ellie had two birthdays. One last weekend on her actual birthday and one this weekend. She decided she didn't want friends round on her actual birthday as she had just got back from a week in Germany with the school and would be too tired. So yesterday we had four noisy giggly teenagers in the house from about 3 o'clock. Fortunately at around 7.30 they all went to the cinema so we were able to watch half of Strictly in peace.
Can you spot the difference in the birthday cakes? No? I'll give you a clue... on one weekend we had no proper candles and I had to resort to using a tea-light candle. My children are so neglected and deprived.
