Happy Birthday Kev

It's funny to think that my lovely OH was only just 24 when we started going out... in 1987. He had a few grey hairs then, but within a month of us meeting we both knew that this was 'it'!! Well he's 46 today, and as Hannah was not in school this afternoon (she had her last AS exam this morning) she spent this afternoon making Kev this AMAZING cake!!! I had got him the tin after seeing it in Lakeland a few weeks ago... and he was so pleased with it. He is the master baker in our house! Just hope he gets home before Hannah eats it all herself!

The kids also made cards for their Dad, Harry's was this interactive one, with googly eyes and moving eyes!! Mine (at the top of the post) is a bit staid in comparison!

We might be going out for tea tonight, it depends what time Kev gets home. Take That are on in concert at the Ricoh arena, which is less that a mile from our house... if we can negotiate the traffic (heading in the opposite direction!) then i won't have to cook! Much as i like Take that, I'm not looking forward to the next 3 nights of gridlock outside the house, as over 110,000 people try to get to the stadium.

Worked my first full day today, morning was good, my old classes were pleased to see me, and we did some practical science. Afternoon less so, some very poor behaviour to deal with again... but i feel I'm making progress. Back in on Wednesday, I'll crack the Year 8 group then!
