Tea was very simple....just her favourite sandwiches with some carrot sticks and crisps but all laid on the table in pretty dishes.
A surprise sundae of mint chocolate ice cream with Mars bar sauce and squirty cream followed by a beautiful pink sparkly birthday cake with candles.....I was forgiven for fibbing about the tomato soup....lol.
She was so thrilled with her gifts. Besides the bed I had bought an outfit with pyjamas, slippers and a teddy bear and another one of a onesie. Then there was the new doll to add to the collection.......
This is Ava......and I so want that hair.
Aunty DD had bought her some items from another favourite collection called Top Model.....books containing body shapes and stickers for you to create outfits.
So all in all a very successful time and one very happy little girl.
Andy has okay'ed the price for the conversion to oil and the plumber will be here next Monday to measure up and hopefully the outside work will start by the end of the week or the following week so I am glad the little bit of snow we got last night didn't amount to anything as we now have a piece of ground we need to level, a base to lay and a shed to empty and move from it's current position onto the new base to make way for the oil tank.
I must admit that I hadn't expected things to move so quickly so it may be a little hectic here this weekend.
I'm just about to put some mince and onions on to cook for a cottage pie for our evening meal. It's pretty cold this morning so a good old fashioned rib sticker should go down well today.
After that I will be looking at my fabric stash for the tiny quilts and will maybe make a start on those.
Hope you are all keeping warm today.
