If you haven't already guessed by the picture it is my Mum's 60th Birthday today, Happy Birthday Mum. We celebrated this weekend by going to Dobbies Garden Centre on the Friday and I spent way too much but got some cute plants for outside my house and some indoor accessories including candles, obv. We also ate way too much cake at Dobbies but I mean it's essential when it's someones birthday right?!

I made my mums Birthday cake for a little extra special effort, i'm actually pretty pleased how it came out given it was a bit of a rush making it. I'm definitely going to practice making bigger cakes a lot more now I know i can do it and it wasn't terrible! Look out for some more recipe posts... 

On Saturday all the family came around my mums house and we had loads of chinese food and a good natter, it was such a fun filled weekend, quite literally as I also got lip fillers on Saturday! I've been thinking about it for over a year but didn't want to rush into it and wanted to find the right place too and I finally did it!! let me know if you would want a full review on the process before and after pics etc and I will definitely do that. 

Let me know in the comments below what you got up to this weekend, I would love to know. 

Love Gill x
