The big....50 finally arrived!
such a sweet little cake
My beautiful strawberry birthday cake was made by http://beckybakewell.wordpress.com
I invited a few girlfriends over for a little birthday celebration a pretty afternoon tea party of course (do you like my birthday banner,I made it from some scraps of fabric, very country rustic). We were incredibly lucky with the weather as we actually managed to sit in the garden, it looked perfect, the sun came out, it felt like summer and a few hours later, thankfully after we were all finished, it poured down with huge hail stones!
A big thanks to Hayley who as always helped me pull it all together.
I was in Dubai for my actual birthday, all that warm air and sunshine seems a long way away now. I felt very lucky spending the day on the beach with my family.
Martin, looking cool in the heat
In my vintage dress all ready for dinner.
Celebrating with my family.
That dress.... one of the reasons I have been at the gym so much!
That cake! It was so delicious with strawberry butter filling...... back to the gym then!
