It’s been a jam-packed month so far but we have loved every minute. One thing we are not loving quite so much though? This weather – I honestly wish it would just make its mind up. We usually have really nice weather for May.
Anyhow – onto our favourites for May.
E’s 6th Birthday
I still can’t believe my biggest boy is now 6 but he had a great party at Bocketts Farm last weekend with 10 of his friends. It was a bit of task trying to keep an eye on 12 children but we made it and didn’t lose any of them!
As an aside to his birthday…I also learnt two new baking skills – making a rainbow cake (pictured below – excuse the makes on the cake it moved around in the cake box and got caught on the edge) AND cake pops and not just bog standard cake pops SHARK cake pops of which I am rather proud of.
On the day of his actual birthday, we were invited to a special premiere of the new Thomas & Friends movie: The Great Race. The boys had a great time and we spent the rest of the day in London.
Uncle L comes to visit
My brother now lives in Hong Kong and has been there for the last four or so years. He last came to the UK in 2013 when M was just 6 months old and although we saw him when we went to Hong Kong to visit my Grandad in October 2014 it wasn’t really for a holiday (my Grandad was poorly) It was lovely having some family time and the boys had fun re-acquainting themselves with their “Kou Fu” (Uncle in Chinese)
I was invited to experience some delicious food on Kingston Riverside a couple of weeks ago at a blogger event. There was so much delicious food to sample and the sun was out for one! Yay!

I love this photo of the boys which I snapped after we had lunch in Kingston one weekend. It captures their love for one another perfectly.
