Oh, what a weekend!
My baby turned five on Saturday.
We had a special birthday breakfast of his choosing (pains au chocolat and strawberries on the side) followed by a cycle into town for our Circle-D Colchester diabetes family support group monthly meeting (wow, that's a mouthful).
We then had lunch in a cafe in town and came home to play his new and much requested board game : Monopoly.
He did really well following the rules and we played for ages, only stopping for Frisbee in the garden and then a couple of episodes of original (1969!!) Scooby-Doo; his latest DVD love.
A lovely, family day for my lovely boy.


  1. Happy 5th Birthday Frank! I hear 5 is the BEST age to be. Congratulations on your big 5 year old Jules! Enjoy!

  2. Ah, sounds like a very lovely day indeed! Happy Birthday Frank!! :D

  3. Happy birthday, small chap!

    Monopoly? Seriously? Good thing he's your baby, not mine because I would rather et slugs than play that. I am sure it was devised as an instrument of torture.

  4. Monopoly rocks! Happy birthday Frank!!!!

  5. Happy birthday, Frank! Sounds like a great one!

  6. Yeah a happiest Birthday EVER! How fun! We love the ancient cartoons, too...muppets are usually a great hit around here ;) Glad you guys had such a fab celebration.

  7. Happy Birthday Sir Frank! Sounds like a wonderful day..and who doesn't love some vintage Scooby Doo! I will be right over...
