I had a birthday! That’s when its the same day as the day you’re born except a year later. It was lots of fun. I saw all my cousins and my aunties and uncles (except nearly-auntie Brenda who was sick) and some of mama and dada’s friends and Lily and James who are other babies but not my cousins.
Mama and Dada made lovely food for my birthday party. I couldn’t eat it all I’m not allowed eat everything yet. Good thing because I don’t think the adults left any spare birthday cake for me. I had cheese straws from mama’s special cookbook for me. I shared my food with the other babies and Opa who’s diabetic. They’re yum and even though mama said they were party food I had them as a snack in the creche. I think she might make them again, i saw her make them and they took no time at all.
Aswell for me there were carroty muffins from the same book. They were tasty but I was busy with my new toys and books and all the excitement so I had fun smushing them into the floor.
My cousins had pizza at my party. I think they would have preferred hammy ones I don’t think they think courgettes belong on a pizza. My mama would eat courgette on her breakfast she likes it a lot. Mama was going to make pizza for the party too but dada bought some instead. She made some before my birthday. I didn’t have any. I don’t mind because mama and dada didn’t really seem to like it either. My special cookbook is sometimes great and sometimes not so great. Dada said the bottom of the pizza was like scones.
I might make mama try and make pizza again because I loved it on our holidays in Italy. She’ll have to find a new recipe. Now, it’s past my bedtime. Night night
While Dom noshed on the above, we ate a very delicious non baby friendly birthday cake – Delia’s basic all in one sponge with fresh cream and raspberries in the middle and covered in chocolate topping from the Jamie Oliver party cake recipe. It was so easy that I made two, one for family and one for friends the next day.
In a bold move, we drank espresso martinis (equal parts espresso, kahlua, vodka & white creme de cacao) – YUM! In hindsight probably a bit boozy for a 1st birthday but there was only 1 per adult!
