We celebrated Little M's sixth birthday this weekend with a bake off party and some light crafting.
The children made cakes, decorated them and made a wooden spoon dolly. A bigger hit than I thought it would be. They loved doing them.
Mmm, yes she could melt her own butter with that smile. Don't be deceived, she is a feisty little character full of guts and determination.
I let them loose with the decorations and piping bags.
On Sunday we went on the train to Birmingham Museum and Art gallery for a day out. It was good, the children liked different bits of the day but on the whole I liked taking them to the big city.
Such great experiences for two country mice.
We saw: people with different accents, people with different coloured skin, people without a home, street entertainers, people playing music, food going round on a conveyor, women holding hands, busy places, quiet places, friendly faces and so much more. We must do it more really, I think it is important for them.
I am not sure they totally got my synopsis of the Pre-Raphaelite art movement but there you are! A good day out all round.
Thanks for popping by. Have a good week. Jo xxxx
