Happy 4th birthday my darling girl. You are growing up way too quickly, especially when you come out with things like "Sometimes I feel hungry, and now is one of those times" or "Copying and imitating are not exactly the same thing." (Check out that cheeky face - I know it well)
You asked for a pink icecream cake and your daddy went the extra mile and made you the most amazing icecream cake from scratch (it took 2 days to cook the custard, let it cool, strain the strawberries, mix it altogether in the icecream maker, make a base from oreos, layer it with chocolate ganache and top it with biscuits and raspberry coulis).
Tonight Todd carried on the tradition with a homemade shepherds pie (he even made the pastry from scratch). Last week he upholstered the kitchen chairs, made the most delicious apple pie I've ever eaten (I think his secret was putting ground almonds and hazelnuts in the pastry), and got 98% on an exam....
And just so he wont get too big a head I'll just make a little tiny mention of the home electrical work he did while standing outside in a puddle with no shoes on. Luckily he was only zapped with mains power for 2 seconds before the safety switch went off! (If you're reading this honey, look at all the lovely things I said about you before I got to that part...) He's fine by the way.
I haven't been doing all that much sewing this week. I got the hint that some of my domestic duties might need some attention when Todd started piling up my shoes on top of my clothes pile in the corner of the room... a very subtle, yet effective hint :)
