Walking home

Thank you so much for all the lovely comments about my cake, I love making birthday cakes, and have done so since I was about 10, made my sisters ballerina doll cake (you know the one where you put the doll into the steam pudding bowl shaped cake).

My nephew loved the cake, and can be seen here doing his best Jack Sparrow impersonation.

Some exciting, but 'scary' (for me anyway) happenings in our house this last week. My 'babies' walked home from school, all the way. Because I finish work at 3 pm, and their school finishes at 2.55, even if I leave work on time, I am still 10 minutes late, and that's assuming I don't get held up. At 8 and a half, and nearly 7, we decided they should be able to cope with the walk home, and they proved us right. I went down and spied on them, and they were quite sensible. I had expected moans, because the oldest doesn't like exercise, but he seems quite keen to walk home, so that's a positive because it's some hidden exercise. This is Cameron walking home on day 2, because Braden had gone to a friends house, and yes, I did miss getting a photo of both of them.
