This was at the Clothes Show and I just really like it. It started with Use Somebody by Kings of Leon being sang all acousticy. It might have been Pixie Lott as I have heard her do it but I cant be sure and then it merged into the Kings of Leon version as the dance progressed and I just really liked it so thought I would share a bit with yous. xx
So Christmas day was nice... the boy got me this...
A Hello Kitty toaster which prints the face of Kitty on the toast haha. Its amazing! He also got me a book I used to read when I was a kid. He's good at remembering things... In general he's just good.
Ma & Pa totally outdid themselves and got me this!
I REALLY needed it. I think they got it because of that fact and because I had borrowed my Ma's old one and she basically wanted it back hahah.
Then our house got this as a joint present from our friend Laura. ALSO amazing.
(It's a toilet seat cover)
Hello David, Hello.
I took Brodie into town and we went shopping and looked at the lights and then went to the City Gallery where they had a kids activity day going on and we made decorations for the tree out of glitter ribbon feathers and laminating papers.
And it snowed and me and Lar felt well festive walking down Tottenham Court Road. Got to Oxford Street and it had gone and was replaced with wetness and giant puddles.
Went to Winter Wonderland on Hyde Park or something. Was OK. But it rained.
On my birthday my ma's friend made me this...
She also had made me one when I was little. And I always went on about it. So she did me another one. WICKED. It was filled with M&Ms.
Went to the work Christmas do in Brum. We had Michael McIntyre & The Sugababes hahaha.
Snowmen (that look a little bit like penguins...)
Also because these cakes were all baked in the boy's kitchen as a change of scenery one morning whilst all the boys were around to watch the football I made them some pretty glittery cupcakes to munch on to make a change from all the doritos and dips.

In case anyone is wondering I would appreciate finding at the end of the bed when the morning comes (a bit like christmas just less christmassy) a big St Bernard dog. in fact...scratch that... I would like it as a puppy so I could appreciate it like that and then see it grow and change hahah .... the boy in a bow... just the bow.... maybe some kind of dapper hat just for laughs... a nice cake with candles in it... thats the shame about being "the cake maker" you never really get cake! I think really thats all I want. Oh and some GHDs as my hair without them is a big frizzy mess. Try that with a big fat fringe. not a good look. SO. Although most of you do not know me.... take heed and send the above items forthwith!!
The boy's raspberry and white chocolate cupcakes with vanilla butter icing festive red and green glitters and christmas cake topper things my ma so kindly gave us...
Picto's gingerbread cupcakes with vanilla butter icing and gingerbread men sprinkles.

We stayed late and even got a glimpse behind scenes! Felt a little bit priviledged.

These are the cakes I made last night for Anna & Dave's wedding today. I went to the gorgeous City Rooms to set them up this morning and this is what happened. I thought I would take pics as I went along to show what went on.
