Busby’s 1st Birthday

A couple of weeks ago we celebrated Busby’s first birthday!

(Due to Christmas and general busyness I haven’t had a chance to blog about it until now!)

It was a fabulous, but incredibly hectic, day that began with eggy bread (Busby’s favourite) and her first cup of tea, and ended with homemade pizza by Nick and a fair few bubbles (of both varieties)!

I made the cake, which I’m pretty proud of – it was a chocolate sponge with caramel icing and honeycomb… in the shape of a beehive. Obviously!

Below are some photos from the big day, taken by myself and my In-laws.

It was a truly wonderful day that went far too quickly! But I’m very proud of myself; I didn’t cry once!
