We won this lovely Birthday cake from our local bakery. My sister and mum had entered the princess and little man in a compatition in the local paper. We were able to pick it up the day the little man had his Birthday party. How lucky is that!
The cake was meant for both children as their Birthdays are only a month apart. The little man got to blow out the candles though. His big sister is way to cool for doing that now she's 10 apparently.
The cake is normal sponge cake with melted brown sugar on top as well as marcipan, icing and lots of sweets. It's a very traditional Danish Birthday cake but Nana and Papa who was over from England loved it too. Nana got the recipe of the internet so she can attempt to bake one back in England. We will look forward to that next time we visit.
Have a lovely Sunday.

"you look like a filmstar, mummy"
When you come out from the bathroom on a Monday morning.
I nearly asked her what she wanted or needed me to do or what she'd done but decided not to. Maybe she did just mean I looked amazing.
Well, I chose to believe that's what she meant.
It's going to be a lovely day.

We left Denmark in a very heavy fully packed car and drove to Bremen where we stayed overnight. The next day we drove on to the Hook of Holland to catch the overnight ferry to Harwich. We arrived in England at Nana and Papa's on a Sunday morning nearly a month ago. 2pm lots of family members showed up for the big family football game. The daddy had arranged it all from the comfort of the sofa back in Denmark. The little man was the youngst player and the daddy and the little man's team won 9-1. They claim it was fair play....
The day after the family football it was the princess' 10th birthday. She chose her birthday cake and got her biggest wish fullfilled. She finally got a mobile phone. We stayed with Nana and papa for a little over a week, had fun with our little cousin, had yummy food, flew kites and relaxed. We went to London for the day, saw it all (not really but most of the turist bits) and finished of the day going to see The Lion King. It was amazing. After London and Nana's amazing brunch the next day we drove to Nottingham. We spent 3 lovely days there before heading north to Newcastle and a little further north to Walwick where we were staying with friend we haven't seen for many years. Turned out they live on top of part of Hadrians Wall. They took us to a museum where we learned all about Hadrian, his wall and the Romans. We had a great time with them and by far not enough time. We had to get a ferry back to Amsterdam from Newcastle. A little over a week ago we arrived in Amsterdam at 9.30am. We drove home the same day and arrived at our house in Denmark at 9.30pm tired but happy having had an amazing holiday. Prepare for a massive amount of pictures below.
