Coco's Funny Little Cupcakes!

Image
(Note how low they sit in their paper cups, and bear in mind that they are very thickly layered in icing, to get an idea of how VERY little these funny cupcakes are!!! But Coco and Rainbow-the-lion liked them - and her classmates too, and her teachers, though it's possible they were just humouring me...)

Karaoke Questions Revisited...

Image
I love the answers you've being giving to the questions "What song am I singing in Karaoke in this photo?" and "What song do/would you like to sing in Karaoke?"
Rachel would sing 'Funky Town, and along with Sam guessed Blue Moon, (which IS from the same communal era of our lives as 'the song'!) Sam also guessed U2 'With or Without You', or something from Coldplay's latest album - you were all most tasteful in your guessing, I must say!
Martin would sing Mr Oizo's 'Flatbeat. Caro would sing jamiroquai's 'Space Cowboy' or Tracy Chapman's 'Sorry', and guessed ABBA 'The Winner Takes it All', or The Beatles 'Let it Be' (which I did sing once in an audition for Les Miserables...an octave too high??!! My family and I laughed long and loud about that! Reminiscent of laughing for about an hour with Tom after failing my driving test for the __ time!!) 
Bens guessed 'Sweet Child of Mine'. Mum san…

Our union-church has a great kids corner named 'Godly Play', which Eowyn and Cosette love. Here they are with E's good friend L, being creative! This reminds me somehow of Tom and me sitting on our squares in Cambridge licking a beater each! There've been lots of beaters to savour around here of late, what with the creation of Coco's lion cake and funny little cup cakes (a picture of which shall appear when it's developed, at Mum, Sam and Becca's request!! I love that you all laughed uproariously at the thought of them!!!!! Who needs perfection when we can laugh at ourselves...) Bens is in the thick of job-searching - it's hard work! And I'm about to make Anita's curried tuna recipe for dins! Love M

Coco is really enjoying her b'day gifts! Thanks!

THANK YOU!

Thank you so much dear ones for your generous and loving gifts for Coco! We had such a lovely family present opening ceremony this smorning! First, Coco opened the lion from Serendipity and exclaimed 'How did she know?' Nextly she opened the socks and pencils from Becca, Sam and Zach, and chose a pair of socks to wear to school, and bounced the pig, birdie and cow on the tops of the pencils. After this, she opened 'The Scissor Fiends', written for Coco by Mummy and illustrated by Eowyn the amazing painter! (Daddy's present, the story "Different Like Coco" is still on its way!) 
Coco and Eowyn had lots of fun ripping open the big parcel from Grandma and Gump, and Coco was very excited about making cards and wanted to do so right away! (We didn't, as it was a school morning!) She was delighted by the lovely bracelets and purse from Rachel, Victor and David, and chose the purply bracelet for herself and gave the black-and-white one to Eowyn - she loves to…

Our four year old lion is five in two sleeps! This pic goes with an orange, yellow, brown and gold mane I've painted for her - which she can wear too, but shall be a party game entitled 'Pin the Main on Coco'! Coco is excited to wear the lion suit Eowyn made her for Hallowe'en! I am making and decorating lion cupcakes - this is the first time in my life I've ever made cupcakes!
