It’s Titchyprincess’s daddy’s birthday today. In previous years I’ve gone for pretty big presents (a trip to Poland, a day at Harry Potter studio tour) but this year we went for smaller, cuter presents. As this is the first of his birthdays that we have spent together in our own home we put up banners and balloons and Amelia helped me bake a cake yesterday. I know, it is not perfect but it tastes nice and is covered in chocolate and butter cream so rob isn’t complaining.
Amelia’s present to her daddy was this cushion. The case is a personalised one from studio and the cushion itself I found in dunelm mill – what good is a cushion without a middle?
One of the sillier presents I bought Rob:
Monster socks! They are from Primark and Amelia is mesmerised by them thanks to all the bright colours. I never seem to get out as many socks as I put in the washing so I’m sure I will loose at least one of these socks in the near future. But they are fun while they last.
Amelia’s daddy really loves hot chocolate so I made him up a box of different instant hot chocolates (this translates to me going in Sainsbury’s and filling a basket with a dozen different sachets). Rob has already tried the wispa gold hot chocolate and Amelia is fascinated with the box I wrapped them all in.
There always has to be a joke present! I found this man apron at littlewoods . The funniest part of it is that rob will probably use it to avoid getting his clothes wet when he does the washing up.
We’ve spent the morning having breakfast – sausages and eggy bread – and watching the snow!!! out the window. It’s been a very relaxed morning and Rob liked all his presents. Yes he had more than the ones I’ve mentioned, but trying to take multiple photos with Amelia grabbing at everything is impossible.
It’s the first of December tomorrow and the birthday banners will be replaced with tinsel and baubles. I can’t wait.
