This week was Little Fella's 2nd Birthday, and to celebrate, me and Big Fella arranged a small "gathering" (it actually turned into quite a large one in the end!), and since me and little fella (well, OK, me) are mad about Halloween, I thought I'd combine the two.
As you can see from the picture, my lovely assistant Millie is demonstrating how realistic the dining room looked with pumpkin head accessories and a black cat for authenticity.
Anyway, I love Halloween, and last year I went a little mad on accessories from Abraxas that I didn't get much use out of, so this year, Little man's party was the ideal opportunity to show off my newly acquired obessession, and since Marks and Spencer have been clever enough to introduce a Nut Free chocolate range (includes easter eggs, Halloween and Christmas), for once, Little Fella didn't miss out on the goodies.
Not that he missed out on much bless him, he had the time of his life, from the moment we brought him downstairs to see his HAPPY BIRTHDAY banner and green tractor to crashing out with a half full bottle of milk at 9pm.
I even managed to make a birthday cake, not something I usually do of course, but I'm tired of trawling through various supermarkets to find a nut free cake - come on people, get a grip, splash a bit of cash and clear up your damned factories and you mind have a few more customers on your hands!
Anyway, I'm glad I did my Nigella bit because the cake actually turned out to be pretty damned lovely. Little Fella managed a spoonful of cream, but turned his back in favour of 'Witches Claws' cheesy puffs, but I won't moan, because at least he ate something.
So, fun was had by all, especially the special birthday boy himself, and his mum got to exploit her obessesion in the process, and do you know what the best part is - I get to do it all again on the 31st! Yeah!
Happy Early Halloween! K x
