Cordelia turns 14

This weekend we had the pleasure of celebrating our youngest daughter Cordelia's 14th birthday. I want to say how?? How is she 14 already but at the same time I want to say how is she ONLY 14??! She seems so much more grown up than that; at least most of the time!

This year she wanted art materials for her birthday and after lots of research settled on Spectrum Noir pens. I managed to get them on offer so she got three packs of 24 pens, it should give her plenty of colours to work with. There were watercolours, chocolates and a few pieces of clothing in there too including a super cool skeleton hoodie from her siblings.

She had requested a Walking Dead birthday cake as she is a huge fan, it's the first time I've made a cake neatly only to make it look as messy, gritty and bloody as possible after! She thought it was perfect and was very happy :D

We headed to Pizza Hut for lunch at the birthday girls request. We rarely eat out much as a family of 6 as it's so expensive and we don't all like the same foods either but we had a really lovely lunch. A nice change. We called at Hobbycraft for more art supplies with birthday money and via Asda for ice cream!

A lovely afternoon of drawing with her big sister and some binge watching of Gossip Girl with me before we sang Happy Birthday and watched The Great Gatsby- a favourite in our house. A really chilled day.

Sunday we headed out into town and whilst Ruben went along to his card club Cordelia and I headed off clothes shopping. We had a great time and she picked out some lovely pieces. We had lunch in the Peace Gardens with the sun shining-loving that Spring is finally here.
