Unicorn Theives

How do I spend my Saturdays when we don't have swimming lessons to go to? Well I try to get a little peace and quiet on my own to do some of my college work. Jack & Tom are fine with this because it means they can plug into their Kindles and tune out the world in favour of watching other people play computer sames on YouTube. George and Fred however, they need to know exactly where I am and what I am doing.

George came for frequent hugs, Fred even thought to being me a bottle of water to drink (he'll make someone an awesome husband one day, little sweetie), and then they found my Unicorns. And that was it. They camped out on my bed and any thought of homework drifted out of the window.#

Love those boys of mine!

Tom turns 7!

This was hard for me. I had to leave the house just after 5am today to get to work. It meant I could finish be half 2 and be home before 4pm, but it's the first time I haven't been there to wish one of my babies a happy birthday when they've woken up. The first time I haven't been there while they opened their presents. And it's left a horrible feeling in my gut.

But I think he's had a nice day - after all it wasn't cancelled following a threat to that manner yesterday from Daddy when he found out Tom had written a very naughty word on one of my degree canvases so he should be grateful for that if nothing else.

We went to the cinema tonight, myself, the birthday boy, Jack and George. Fred is still too small for anything that isn't a cartoon and Daddy stayed home with him. Despite the photo of Minions it was actually the last (allegedly) instalment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise (and not Wonder Woman either, boo!) which is what Tom had chosen.


We ate the Death Star Cake - without tears and with added ice-cream - and the take away tea has been put on hold for tomorrow so that we could actually get to the cinema and back before Mummy fell asleep.

Cake Fail!

I hope Tom will forgive me for this travesty of a cake. Star Wars fans - and bakers - the world over will boo and hiss this pathetic attempt at a Death Star Cake.

In my defence, this is the first round cake I have ever baked. I was very limited on time (working full time now remember, and a 6am start at work on friday meant getting up at 4:40am and getting to bed very early the previous night - when I should have been putting a great deal of creativity into this cake....) and it was blisteringly hot which just buggered up my fondant icing until it was almost unusable.

I fully expect Tom to cry when he sees it, while the other boys laugh at this sad offering.

Oh dear.... Bad Mummy!
