Today was a real mixture of things. Some sad family stuff that I won’t go into here and some awesome family stuff, namely a fabulous party at Jake’s cousin’s house for her 21st. (Happy Birthday again Kay, if you’re reading this!)
And randomly, Jake’s cousins happen to be friends with the very lovely RebaJane who makes the most incredibly intricate jewellery, from crocheted and knitted wire. Just stunning.
We hadn’t met before but we had a lovely chat about all things crafty and she showed me the book that she’s just been featured in. I gawped in amazement at some of her pieces because really, I can’t imagine how much time and skill it must take to make something so delicate.
And she is also a cupcake fan, so we scoffed the most GINORMOUS vegan cupcakes in the world – made by Jake’s cousins and his aunt. Sadly I didn’t have my camera in my hand and I was too busy munching to take pictures anyway, but these cupcakes were works of art in their own right. Amazingly fluffy vegan buttercream icing – mine never looks that good – and sprinkled with cute colourful sugar shapes.
All in all, not a bad day. And yes, the littl’uns wore their dresses and were universally admired. I felt proud and ever so slightly smug all afternoon :->
