birthday food...

How do those little people turn into such big people so fast?! Today my 'baby' is 21. Doesn't seem possible.

Some lovely friends took us out Friday evening for a special meal and they brought his dessert out like this out for him...

It tasted amazing too!

Last night we had a night at the cinema for the launch of the new Dr Who series (he's a big fan!) and today he and I shopped and had tea in a quirky little cafe in Norwich...

Love the lamp made of teacups in the background...

and these scones were warm and delicious! I had lavender scones with cream and lemon curd - a whole new take on a cream tea...

I'm guessing this may not be your average 21 year old lad's idea of the best way to spend his birthday - disadvantage of end of August birthday, everyone busy on August bank holiday, but I hope he's had a nice day. Tonight he's out with his brother so I expect that will rate highly, love that they enjoy each other's company so much.

Definitely all 'grown up kids' now!

  1. ooh I've never tried a lavender scone, it sound delicious with lemon curd. Not something I've heard of before but I'll be checking for them when ever I'm in a tearoom now! Sounds like a really lovely day, happy birthday to your son!

  2. Happy birthday to your son, I bet he had a great day.

  3. I'm sure he had a lovely day. Those lavender scones sound yummy - I might pick some and have a go at making them. I too can't believe that my eldest will be 21 in November; where does the time go? x

  4. Looks like you two had a wonderful time. His dessert looks amazing! A birthday date with your Mom and another with your older brother sounds like a perfect way to welcome 21!

  5. Sounds good to me .... you look fab !!!

    1. Aww, thanks Penny! Unusual to get me the 'wrong' side of the camera...! x
