Last weekend we visited friends Nikki, Guy and Monica in Nerja. Fulvia, J.M. and Bianca came too. We had fun. It was extremely windy. I made strawberry daquiris and passed out. Was very sick. How embarrassing! Anyway, Willow had a ball with the girls. She has grown up so much so quickly. She's a little girl now , very independent and full of life. And can she talk!

Homemade hot cross buns..... delicious!
Willow's nursery had a gallery of decorated eggs. We had a go but unfortunately Willow was too sick with a bad cold on Wednesday to be there for the prizegiving. Somehow I don't think we were in the running. You should have seen some of the pieces the children/parents displayed! Works of art!!
This photo was taken by Willow, and she decorated the cupcakes too. I was trying to tell her that less is more, but at Easter time I guess it doesn't matter!
The weather has been glorious! Thankyou Mother Nature! x
The Hello Kitty Birthday cake and cupcakes I made for Bianca's 5th birthday party. Happy Birthday Bianca! She had a wonderful kitty cat birthday party.
I took the time to swap Willow's bedroom into the spare room so now she has a full on playroom/bedroom. It's so much better as now there are no toys in the loungeroom
She really loves her new bedroom/playroom
This is a photo that Willow took of one of her paintings. I love it!
Easter (Semana Santa) in Spain is such an important religious and family time. Marbella goes from being basically a sleepy village to a bustling international town. Fortunately the weather gods shone down upon us and gifted us with sunshine and warmth. It has been a very pleasant holiday period. Willow is now in bed asleep, which is a blessing in itself considering the amount of chocolate she has eaten. We are not long home from a wonderful lunch which turned into dinner.... the best ones do don't they..... We dined at Fulvia and JM's apartment, overlooking the sea, on the terrace, in the sunshine.... delicious Italian food, fresh, tasty ingredients and amazing flavours.... Burato mozzarella, tomatoes and pesto, Saltimbocca, pasta, plenty of white wine, coffee and chocolate. Willow and Bianca played together nicely, mostly...
Good Night and Sweet dreams... xxx
