Yesterday was Alex's birthday, he turned three. We have had two birthday parties, one on Sunday gone, for all his friends, and on the day itself we had the family over, the English side of the family that is.

But it is quite big and fiddly, so I'm hoping to have it done for her 1st birthday, in December! This is what I've done this far:
