Madame started the day by picking her own clothes (i.e threw all the clothes out of the drawers and then hugged the butterfly costume). So I decided she wanted to be a butterfly for the day! It is a gorgeous piece from BHB Kidstyle!

We went to White Post Farm in Nottingham and if I am honest and you are considering this as a possible birthday venue, please prepare to be underwhelmed. It costs nearly 10 pounds per adult to enter and the best part about it was the meerkats and reptiles neither or which are actually farm animals. Now there are farm animals there too but to be honest the barn is very stinky and the outside area where some pigs, goats and cows are is really so small that you are pretty much done with your farm tour in about 20 minutes. You do get to feed the animals (provided you fork out another 3 pounds). I would not moan so much had the price been half of what was charged.
However, cranky as I may sound, I enjoyed the day because it was my girl's first birthday and that is what counts!

Dad baked her a cake and I decorated it. It was a sacher torte with white chocolate cigarellos or cigarillos and some hand made chocolate roses. It was a mini cake for a mini birthday......just slightly bigger than a traditional cupcake
