My birthday weekend

On Wednesday I turned 24 and celebrated by having a few days off work and having my girlfriends round for a lunch yesterday.

I made the dining room all girly with bunting I made a few weeks ago

 We had sandwiches, vegetable sticks, nachos and dips, strawberries and a Brooklyn Blackout cake I made from the Hummingbird Bakery book

But in the end we took advantage of the lovely weather and ate outdoors




Here's the cake close up. It's chocolate sponge, with layers of chocolate custard between and all over, and some cake crumbs on top to decorate. It was LOVELY!

Lucky I did up my garden on Friday. I got the table and chairs for my birthday from my parents and got the parasol in the sale at Homebase!

The garden still needs ripping out but it's a little nicer now. We'll get round to it one day.
