A busy weekend with Vera

There were important jobs to do this weekend. First of all (actually this was Thursday evening, but it was nearly the weekend) Vera helped me to make son number 2's birthday cake. I had to explain to Vera that it wasn't really his birthday, that was in August, but I've only just got round to organising the party, so it didn't really matter that she hadn't bought a card. (Phew - she was worried!) Vera had great fun doing the decorating...


Next there were new friends to meet - I took Vera to school with me. These are the Class 1 teddies - Willoughby and Weatherby. She was very good and provided excellent care for the little ones - fortunately no wet clothes to change. Or anything else much worse...


Then on Saturday it was party time - she's never been bowling before but thought it was great fun. Loved sliding around on the floor - it's so slippy!


Coudn't decide which ball to choose - opted for the pretty pink one in the end.

And then we bought some 'Sahara Nuts' for us all to share, but we had to get in quick as Vera thought they were very delicious!

And before we went home, she chose her very own Party Bag which Weatherby was quite keen on sharing, but Vera wasn't feeling in a particularly generous mood!


And today being Sunday, we're all having a nice quiet day knitting. Monkee Maker you have taught her well, look at that pretty mitred square she's done for Oliver's blanket. A perfect 4" square. Good work Vera, now she's off to play with Bartholomew, as he's been getting a tad restless!

THIS is the cake that I want to have when we come visit!

ps: I know that I say that about almost every cake, but honestly, this one is IT!
