Dads Birthday and the Olympics!

Hi guys,

Today we celebrated my dads Birthday! :D It's not really his Birthday till the 26th but we are on holiday then and couldn't bring all his gifts so we celebrated it today :)

Yesterday I made him a cake ready for today, it took me about two hours, even though I was only following a kids recipe :P I was quite pleased in the end though and I finished it before I went driving with my friend :)

It is meant to be a Charlie and the chocolate factory, chocolate factory cake :0) My dad liked it and it was quite tasty (if I do say so myself :P) so I was happy!

Along with the mini knitted character I made my dad, as an extra gift I also let my dad choose a set of coasters out of all of the crochet crisp packet coasters I made recently because he always says he likes them :o) Here are the ones he chose:

Before we had the cake and gifts though we went out and saw the olympic torch come down the street near us in preparation for the 2012 London Olympics!!!! It was very fun :) Even though we did have to get up quite early (6:15am)

There were a few different advertising veichles to see and we got some free little flags to wave and stick things you bang togther from the Samsung people and a free coke from the Coca Cola people too :-) Then the Olympic Torch came by. It was larger than I thought it was, I thoughti it was just slightly larger than ice cream size, lol! :P

In the afternoon, for a birthday lunch we went to Pizza Express (Yum!) so all in all it was a good day! 

I hope all of you had a good day too :)

See you all very soon,
