Cake and hammers!

It was time to celebrate Oliver’s birthday with friends and family today. It was a 10 day wait for Oliver, a long time when you are three four. He requested a rocket party with woodwork and real tools. Here is the birthday boy with his tools, thanks to nana!


We visited reverse art truck to get all the wood off cuts and the empty knitting machine cones which the children used. They had a lot of fun making rockets, space ships and even a castle!!


The afternoon finished off with birthday cake and ice cream in cones (It was a very hot day!) This year it had to be a rocket cake with three sparkler jet engines and a space man candle!

It is always a great feeling to get to the end of a birthday party and know everyone had a lovely time and there’s a break for a little while before you have to do it again!

School is back tomorrow – my 7 1/2 year old can’t wait and has been counting down, my 9 1/2 year old doesn’t want to go back and would rather be on permanent holidays. I think I lie somewhere in between… the school clothes are clean and ready the lunchboxes are out… let the year roll on…
