Saturday

two little ducks... 22

easter at home at the cottage was truly spectacular. perfection to be quite accurate. being with mother and samuel and playing games with nephews and friends. seeing cousins and listening to music and making cupcakes. everything was just so lovely. and now i am back in nottinghamshire, it makes my heart sad. i wish to be with everyone who are far far away. my heart sinks.
*

but i did have my birthday in the holidays, on the fourteenth of april. it was so magical and everything was just how i could ever imagined. now i am older, it was a little more grown up. but when amanda and ola visited it felt ever so young again. ice cream and swinging on the swings and picking daisies and helium balloons and homemade books-complete sweetness.
mother let me have a teeny birthday party for family and close friends. everything was pink. the girls wore pink. the boys wore pink. the biscuits were pink. mother's homemade bread and pavlova were pink. we drank pink lemonade. we ate salmon. we smelt pink roses. we ate pink cupcakes that i made. mother made me an extra special pink iced sponge cake in the shape for a heart with my name on it.
everything was special. my closest oldest friends were there and it was so sweet.

my favouritist friend suzanne made me glittered biscuits for easter and they were lemon flavoured. they were so delicious. i decided to share with you.
♥ thank you for my beautiful comments. you are all so patient with me which i adore. less than two months and i am completely and utterly sticking myself with glitter glue to my desk and will blog to the wee hours of the morning. i cannot wait.
i have read that a few lovelies wanted to trade links with me, bless you, if you wouldn't mind leaving a comment again, i will do it straight away, my mind is all over the place.

  23. Happy Birthday Lottie! Your pink celebration sounds lovely. I have a secret hope for a surprise 18th party, and would love it to be completely pink. But otherwise I'll have fun with my wonderful family! That's what I usually do - close friends and my own home. It's more warm and familiar and sweet!

  52. my dearest and most special moon best friend,

    this post is ever so sweet and ever so pink. im glad your day was so perfect and smiley and full of so many pink treasures!!

    the washing line of polaroids with the teeny pegs is far too cute for words, dearest little one.

    there is a teeny parcel with fairy magic and birthday wishes and easter smiles, which i hope and cross my fingers that it will be with you soon. i know may day and the bank holiday slows the post. hopefully our special postman will see how important it is to get to you extra quick!!
    but it means your birthday has not ended yet, because it is not complete until all the gifts have been recieved, you see :)

    you are my favourite and my best

    starryness and crossed fingers and toes for an extra special fairy mail (unfortunately also extra late!!)
    rosy rosie who hopes we can have a tea party very soon :)

  66. Happy Birthday!

    You are a wonderful little pink glittery animal! Even though I don't know you, I feel like you could be my friend.
    I love the fact you write about simple things and make them really pretty.
    You've been a great inspiration to me. I check your blog in the mornings and after reading your posts I decide I want to drink tea from pink mug, to change my morning rituals and spend more time enjoying simple things... cake, cats and tea... it can all be special and magical. We just need to make it.

    I've started blogging recently, but I'm afraid my posts are rather blue... I hope I'll make it more magical xoxo
