I know it is such a cliche but where oh where did the time go!! My eldest son will be a teenager tomorrow!!
I am not old enough to be a mother to a teenager - it conjures up such horrific images in my mind when I say aloud - I have a teenage son!!!

He is on a school trip at the moment and returns tomorrow - but unless he has a Harry Enfield Kevin style transformation in Hastings this week - I'm not worried. And this is why....

My lovely grown up boy has requested this birthday cake:

(I promise it is not as wonky as this picture looks!!)

Yes, my fashion conscious, Kaiser Chief and Gavin and Stacey loving boy wanted a replica of his brothers 2nd birthday cake from last year!! And a 'party food' tea. No my space advertised - parents house trashing party for him! I am blessed.

Don't get me wrong he is definately not a Stepford child - he could argue that black is white, and we often do!!! He always has to have the last word, couldn't find the dishwasher if I put a neon sign on it and he thinks I am a terrible mum because I won't let him have a Grand Theft Auto game for his birthday!!!

But he is also a polite, helpful, grateful boy who is a fantastic son and big brother...long may it continue. Love you tons ally pants xx

Ah, Dolly, thats sweet.. I hope you never get the Kevin and Perry type stuff, it's funny, but it's SO not funny at the time!

I've tagged you (you need to read over at RG to find out what that means!)..

Save me a big piece of cake!

love, Rasp xx

My older girls 14, 18 and 21 always want 'party food' for their birthday teas and a home made decorated cake, I don't think they'll ever grow out of it. They also call it 'a choosy tea' as they can choose what they want.
