He's making a list....

Oops, not yet, it's the number one day one the social calender. Well, the day before it. What could be more important than a certain 5 yr old's 6th birthday?
Today has bought more grief than I ever imagined, so much so that I grew more grey hair and have bitten the bullet and bought a home dye job for tonight! She's exasperating......
But here are the preps so far- the tried and tested recipes

the old faithful that stands unused for very long periods of time (staring in envy at the sewing machine)

gingerbread cutters finally used

Tonight's jobs: make slab of cake into a whale; dye hair; run to shop for liquorice for whale's mouth; paint toenails (I have to make it a bit about me, don't I? I pushed her out...)

Good luck with everything - I am sure it will all go well. I have the same red mixmaster as you and she sits in the corner of my kitchen and looks pretty most of the time. Mine is probably jealous of the sewing machine too.

Happy birthday Little Miss!
And Beck, it should be ALL about you I think!!!
I too have the same red mixer as you, but mine doesn't sit long enough to get jealous. I have my sewing machine on the kitchen table (see My Creative Space last Thursday!) and have discovered I can get in 10 minutes on the Janome while waiting for a cake to mix!!!

I'm not sure kid birthdays would be 'proper' without the good ol' Womens Weekly cake bible. I still remember the cursing brought on by the duck two years running...
