This year's birthday afternoon tea at Betty's Harlow Carr
It's my annual birthday list - about six weeks late, but that's just the way things roll around here at the moment. A combination of new things, things I didn't quite manage last year due to the arrival of the boy child, and things that I've been meaning to do for bloomin' ages.

3. Do Race for Life with Gwen
4. Go sea kayaking

  1. Hello,

    Ooh another Wilf and yours looks quite the cheeky chappy just like ours. We had a similar experience at the beach recently, turns out its great fun in the muddy sand for about half an hour. Then suddenly less so.
    LOVE your birthday list idea, I am so going to do that. My husband will be thrilled if I add yet another 'to do' element to our lives! Going to borrow a few of yours too, ice cream cupcakes you say...

    Lovely to find your blog
