Daughter dedication !!

It was Mickey's 16th birthday on Friday, and she's managed to spread the celebrations over the whole weekend too !!

On Friday we spent the day together, then went out for a meal at the local carvery. On Saturday we awoke to torrential rains - and we'd been planning a barbecue !! We talked it over and decided that in true British spirit we'd go ahead with the barbie, so Dave donned his wellies, hat and big waterproof coat and set up a big umbrella to protect the barbecue, and proceeded to cook almost 60 burgers and sausages. I was just as busy in the kitchen, making Chicken and Bacon Pasta Salad, Tuna and Sweetcorn Pasta Salad, my gorgeous Chocolate Muffins, tomato salad, and preparing all the usual bbq extras.

I also tried an archive recipe from Sweet and Simple Bakes - their Banana and Chocolate Loaf ( Having used all my dark chocolate in the muffins, I substituted white chocolate and the results were gorgeous. It all disappeared at lightning speed, so it was obviously very popular. Thanks for that Maria and Rosie !!

The party must have gone well, judging by how long it laster - 7 hours !!

Today Mickey took her friends to a lovely chinese restaurant and then went shopping to walk off some of the food.

I'm so glad that she had such a wonderful birthday (days, lol).

She deserves every second.
