Helen turned fifteen on the weekend. Seriously, I'd show photos of her when I first started blogging to show you how she has changed in the past five years, but I won't. Because she has full approval of any and all images I put on her or IG of her these days. Which is fair enough.
So this is the photo I was allowed to use.
Needless to say I am endless proud of her. She celebrated her birthday by having her three closest friends over for the night. Emily joined the fun by having her bestie over as well.
Emily took the responsibility of cake decoration on. She chose a Dr Who theme with Helen's blessing. Ever seen the Doctor, his sidekick and daleks made with marshmallows before?
You have now. The icing is that lurid shade of pink because we flavoured/coloured it with a crushed and sieved punnet of raspberries.
Anyway, I would have recovered from the weekend by Monday, if Helen hadn't needed to see the doctor. And then be taken to A&E Monday night when it turned out she is allergic to some antibiotics. Poor thing.
It's been a long week. Much longer for her than me. She's so itchy! Bless her, she decided to return to school though.
I might get to sew again.
