I don't know how it happened but my baby turned 30 today. Yep, Joanna is 30. Wow!

I made her this cake.

I found the wee dolly in the cake decorating bits box last weekend when I was decorating mum's birthday cake. (She wasn't lost ... I knew she was there ... I just hadn't thought about her for a long time.) She was a very popular birthday cake when the girls were wee and I thought she deserved to come out and be used again.

As there was no room for candles, I stuck some in a Mars Bar Cake for Jo to blow out. I caught them just as they blew out!

And to prove the point that being 30 means nothing about having to behave sensibly, here's a photo I took this morning at Dunfermline Abbey.

Happy Birthday, Beanie. We love you to bits!


  1. OH MY GOD!!!!!

    30 years old and still behaving inappropriately!! At least it made me laugh (and cringe!).

    Thanks for a lovely birthday - I love you guys. Looking forward to your 31st on Friday! :)
