Another weekend flies past..  On Saturday we had a good catch up and Supper with Steve before heading over to Woking to cheer Rehan on in the production of The King and I at the New Victoria Theatre.  It was a brilliant show, the set and cast were fabulous and Rehan was the consummate professional, it was a super evening, and we definitely have a star in the making - watch this space!

On Sunday the house filled full of our friends and their kids for Zach's 3rd birthday party.  I had hired a Thomas train track and kids rollercoaster for the day anticipating the sunshine at the the end of April.. No such luck, it thrashed down all day so we had to rearrange the living room to accommodate everything, it went really well though and they all loved it.  In true Neill fashion we didn't say goodbye to the last of our guests until late in the evening but we all had a great time with much fun and laughter from adults and kids alike.  Zach wanted a diesel 10 cake (not just plain old Thomas!) so I commissioned this fab fondant topper from loveableleanne on ebay and made the cake and iced it myself.  It took forever to do the no 3 as the metal tin needed to be lined and greased, it was a complete mission, especially as I am not the world's best or most patient baker!  But he was thrilled with it, and was over the moon, so that made it all worthwhile.
