18th Birthday

Happy Birthday to my third eldest son who has just turned 18.  However did that happen, seems only yesterday that I was bringing him home...

Darling daughter donned her apron and made him a lovely lemon cheesecake for his birthday cake

She even made the ginger biscuits that made up the crust - even though her brother had chosen cheesecake so that she wouldn't have to slave over a hot oven...

The entire confection was covered with lemon flavoured meringue sprinkles and popping candy

She is getting quite arty at taking cake photos...
It was absolutely delicious, and didn't hang around for long!

He had a lovely day, got lots of presents and declared himself delighted with all of them.  He is such a lovely lad, with a very droll sense of humour.  He is (as all my kids are) very close to my Darling Mum who he spends each Saturday morning with, as well as visiting in the week.  She enjoys having long discussions with him about topics ranging from history to Doctor Who!

Thanks so much to all of you who made such lovely comments on my last post, I really appreciated it.  We celebrated again this week as my second son achieved his HNC in Media with merit this week - this is brilliant in and of itself, but also means he goes on to take the HND next year.  We are so proud of him.

Have a lovely Sunday, Helenxx


  1. I'm salivating here, I love lemon in anything and the biscuit base looks so crunchy.
    If you wondered where the time went, how do you think I feel, my eldest is 50 this year, help.....I can't be that old. lol
