My 24 hours in Denmark

Earlier this month I had a 24 hours trip back to Denmark. I went a good friend's wedding in my home town Korsør. I was on the 8am flight from Gatwick! The weather was for a change bright and sunny, perfect for flying. Unfortunately it was cold and windy when I got to Denmark!!

The wedding theme was 'Maritime' and the venue was the Sailor's residence at the old Fort in town. Everybody was dressed up and looked the part. It was a truly great wedding.
I just about had time enough to stock up on some of my favourite Danish goodies, before heading back to UK the following morning :-)

The Circus Party

Come one, come all, step right up and join the Circus fun

Yesterday we had a Circus Party for Felix!
We booked his nursery for the day and decorated the room with colourful buntings og Circus posters (brought back from Denmark, stolen from a lamppost over Easter, I blame the schnapps ...)

We set the table with red and white striped fabric from Ikea as a tablecloth, I bought the shiny blue plates in Poundland and all the small decorations I got right here. I made all the food and cakes my self. 48 small sausages rolls/hotdogs, 24 cupcakes and a big Circus birthday cake, all this was served with fresh fruit and popcorn. The best thing was that I made Alistair dress up (which he hates) never the less he did as he was told! After all I was the ring master (The boss) and Felix and Ophelia were clowns too! Many of the little guests were also dressed up, they all looked like they enjoyed it! 

We had a few party games and I even downloaded circus music to play in the background, see the link below. Overall it was a very successful day with happy children, yummy cake and lots of great presents  for Felix.  
A big thank you everyone who came along to Celebrate Felix's 4th Birthday x

Felix 4 years old

Felix is 4 today Hurray!

Our big boy woke us all up very early and was asking for his presents :-) After singing Happy Birthday we all got up and rushed downstairs to a pile of presents! Last night Ophelia decorated the living room with buntings and flags with the help from her Daddy (Whilst I was out having Pizza & wine with the guys from badminton). After opening all the presents we enjoyed a delicious breakfast with lots of fresh fruit and Felix favourite 'pain au chocolat!' Around 11am Alistair took the kids to Branch Hatch to see a race. I started baking the Birthday cake for the big party tomorrow! I went to work around 1pm. At 5pm I  was picked up by my two men - (Ophelia had to go to a Disco Birthday Party) So the 3 of us went to a local Italian restaurant and had a nice meal. We had a lovely day.
