This is going to be quite a quick post as I'm grabbing a quiet moment when Rose is napping to sit down at the laptop but what I should really be doing right now is packing, as we're travelling down to Cornwall tomorrow to visit my Mum. (Sooo looking forward to it!)
Edited to add: It sounds like quite a few people live in or regularly visit Cornwall, does anyone have any idea's of nice things to do or places to visit whilst we're down there..?
I've got a few WIP's on the go at the moment, so I'm hoping we'll time the car journey's well so Rose will sleep and I'll have a few solid hours of knitting/crocheting time! That's the plan anyway... I'm sure it won't work out quite that way though..!
Ray had a big exam the day after Rose's birthday so really needed to crack on with his revision, so Rose and I went back to Dorset for a few day's and had a little birthday party at my Nan and Grandad's house.
I baked a cake for her and did my best at decorating it. This is where I got my inspiration from.... okay I know it doesn't look half as professional, but I was pretty chuffed with it! Looking at the photo now, one of the front rose's looks pretty rubbish but that doesn't matter as it still tasted pretty good! haha
I really enjoyed making it... especially the glitter part at the end!
Rose was given some really lovely presents and it was just a really lovely day. It was a real shame that Ray wasn't there but it couldn't be helped and he got to see her for a good few hours in the morning.
It was a really special day for another reason as well, my best friend Vicky who lives in Wales was able to come back to Dorset to see Rose on her birthday. She's Rose's god-mother but because of the big distance between where we both live, we hadn't seen her for months and months. We're going to Wales in March to stay with them for a few day's and I'm so so looking forward to it. :-)
One of Rose's presents from her was this really sweet basket, she's going to look so cute carrying it around when she's a bit older.
My mum crocheted this beautiful blanket for her and she loves it! I especially love the little felt hearts she stictched onto it, something I would never have thought to do.
Such a pretty pose!!
The next day Rose and I had a little day-trip with Vicky and went to Lyme Regis. We had a look around all of the shops but annoyingly most of the nice ones were closed... it was a Wednesday! There was a shop that looked amazinggg and was a really sweet cupcake decorating shop, but no - closed!
We did have a really lovely lunch in the restaurant there though and luckily it was relatively quiet where we were sitting so Rose got to walk around a little, unfortunately the table corners were at just the right height for her to walk straight into though so we did have a few tears!
Right, well time to crack on with packing! Or maybe I'll just make a cuppa and make the most of Rose Still being asleep and get on with my knitting... ;-)
