Birthdays and bargains

Today its James, my middle sons birthday. As a small child he found it difficult to wait all year for his 2 best days to happen within 8 days of each other - even though I am past wanting to do anything special I always try to make the effort for him.
This cake stand was a bargain at Tesco in the sale - I've always loved cake stands - I think they make them look so classy and proud!
So lots of brownie mixture, cut into squares and piled up together with his fav fruit of blueberries and grapes - just not sure where to put the candles!!!
Hope you have had a wonderful bank holiday. I had a facebook conversation with a very old friend last night which has already made my year so I am very easily pleased.
We are having an Indian takeaway tonight which James loves - not a great start to the calorie reducing programme but he will only be 22 once!
Happy Birthday Son x
