A square chocolate cake with lots of chocolate....and caramel in the middle. That was the birthday cake request from Myles this morning. I'm pretty sure I hit the brief.
It's actually his birthday tomorrow but we had a little party today, just round at the house with a few of his pals from school. They all made their own spaghetti, rolling it through the pasta machine, selecting what they had with it. I was hoping to get pictures but the truth was it was completely chaotic, Myles threw the strop of all strops, wouldn't sit at the table, wouldn't blow his candles out and even called my cake 'pathetic' then marched of screaming "I hate you for all of my life" Great...Nice....thanks son. Where do they get these things from!? 🎂
Back off to school they go tomorrow, and I have to say its a good job. Another day of listening to them argue constantly I think would completely send me over the edge. It's been a tough old week, juggling every thing - as we do. Weeks like this I miss my Mum even more. She'd have been here helping me out, saying "it's ok love, you're doing your best, they are just being kids" she'd help me to see the funny side and hand me a glass of wine.....then we'd laugh together. 🎂
But hey, tomorrow is a new day - new things to plan and move forward with. A day alone to reset and unwind is what is needed and I shall enjoy it.
Oh, and just for the record - the cake was great, not at all pathetic....well in my opinion anyway 😂
Children, such little darlings!
