My Baby is Ten..............

I can't believe how quickly the time goes, before I know it he will be all grown up.  Last Thursday was Master M's 10th birthday. It only seems like yesterday that he was born, where have the years gone !

This year we didn't have a party but he had a couple of friends home from school on Friday for dinner at the American style diner near us and then a sleepover, I have to say they were all very good and went straight to bed when I said it was time, yes I was surprised too.  His lovely cousin Kelly made him this fantastic cake, what a clever girl she is, although I think she had to sit down while she was doing it due to her ever expanding waistline !!!

Talking of her expanding waistline, I've made this granny square blanket for our little bundle ready for her pram / moses basket etc, lovely Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino wool, lovely soft and warm, I was so pleased with it, as was Kelly and James.

Hope you're all having a great weekend, see you all again soon.

Day Out With Master M..........

Last Saturday I decided it would be nice for Master M and I to have a day out, sadly we don't get to spend heaps of time together as I'm out of the house at work for around 13 hours a day, so every now and then I like to do something, just the two of us.  We got up early and set off at 8.30 to Tesco to buy some bits for our lunch, then off to the station.

Master M quite likes going on the Tube, we had a lovely journey as we bumped into our old neighbours.

As he is studying the Egyptians at school at the moment, I thought it would be nice for us to visit the British Museum, they have a great collection of Egyptian artifacts, it was very interesting (I haven't been there myself since I was a child), Master M really enjoyed it here too,  while we were there we also visited the 'Book of the Dead' exhibition.

Later we moved on to the Science Museum, although we did only manage one floor, there is so much there to see and do, so we will definitely have to plan a return visit to see the other 3 floors!

We had a great day together and I very much look forward to the next one.
