Last weekend was my birthday weekend.
We had lots on with a kids party and political voting on my actual birthday, so we only celebrated on a very small scale. It still felt like my birthday even though we didn't have a big celebration.

My present was something I really needed - a new mobile phone with an awesome camera!
My present from my mum earlier in the week was a visit to the hairdresser for a total makeover!
Here we are out and about at Sizzler, celebrating my birthday early
So, going back to my actual birthday... Got a bit side tracked there with the hairdresser and lunch at Sizzler. My birthday cake was a sticky and gooey chocolate cake with cream and cashew nuts on top - a Swedish speciality and always a treat!
My birthday week(end) continued on Sunday the 26th.
I invited my Uncle (my mum's younger brother) and his wife, my in-laws and my Swedish BFF Petra and her two kids over to share lots of cake with my family and I. I had made three Swedish cakes - a green Princess Cake with scrumptious marzipan, a Tosca Cake with almond topping and finally a Meringue Cake with cream and berries. It was a total feast!

After my birthday celebration, mum took us out for dinner.
I had a great birthday celebration which lasted from Wednesday with a visit at the hairdresser and a lunch at Sizzler... Saturday with present and cake, to Sunday with family and friends over for cake and at the end of the night, a dinner out with my mum, hubby and kids. Can't wait for my 45th... ☺
