Arthur turned 4 on Friday. He had a lovely day which started with the opening of presents before breakfast. He was as pleased as punch with all his new toys. Four is a good age for boys toys: no longer the toddler toys. He received numerous exciting new additions to expand his beloved Brio railway, Lego, Playmobil and lots of cars and track. There were also some lovely books and some great craft bits for those quieter times. One lucky boy.
That evening Arthur called the shots when it came to the dinner menu. He requested Pesto pasta, garlic bread and black olives followed by chocolate mousse made by mummy. The mousse was winner, so I shall share the recipe in a future post. In the meantime, here are some pics of the all-important Birthday cake that we enjoyed the next day at his party. It was triple chocolate: chocolate sponge, kit-kat fingers and smarties. Needless to say Arthur loved it and come the end of the weekend there wasn't a crumb left.
