It's my baby's birthday!!

Well actually he's 8 so he's not really my baby anymore!!!

My sister made the cake...and she did a fantastic job don't you think?

The only bad thing about his birthday is that it means that I have been talking to the ex in the last couple of days. I have already arranged vacation care for Dear Son (DS) for all of the week, and he announced today that he is coming over Friday and expects me to make new arrangements and be able to take DS to meet him, and pick him up when he is done.

That's after we had a big discussion about how an IPod is probably not the best present for an 8 year maybe if he called more than 3 or 4 times a year then that would be a better present!!

Today he texted me to ask what time would be a good time for him to call tonight...I said 8pm, and somewhat stupidly had DS holding the phone for when it rang. 10 minutes later, still no call, so I texted him to say that DS was waiting. He was very polite and thanked me for reminding him.....I was livid...surely he can remember to call himself!

Anyway enough of that!!!

P.S. I am still posting a bit all over the place at the moment. Scroll down for reviews of Scandal in Spring by Lisa Kleypas, the Wish List anthology.

There are still reviews coming of Rachel's Holiday by Marian Keyes and Vengeance in Death by J D Robb, and in the next couple of days I will post a couple of pictures from when we were away!


  1. Aww! What a cutie! They grow up so fast ...

  2. OMG what an Ass! At least your boy has you, he is sooo cute. And that cake? Very good! lol. Times flies with them doesn't it, my son just started Kindergarden this year. I was crying.

  3. They do grow up so fast! In the next few days I will post a better photo!

  4. I think they're always your babies, no matter how old. My niece started high school this year. I think I bawled almost all day. I actually would have been fine, I was just a little sad. Then I talked to Mom ~ you can always count on your mothers for some perspective. Mom pointed out that high school goes by so fast and before we knew it she'd be graduating college and getting married. Yup, waterworks all day.

    So did your ex ever call wish your son happy birthday? Can't believe you had to remind him.

  5. Is your ex a dork? I just have to say, cuz, you know, how can you forget to call your own kid?!?!

    Great bday cake!

  6. Your son is a cutie pie. And the cake looks delish. As to exes..well, I'm just glad I don't have one!

  7. Aww! Happy Birthday to DS! He's soo cute!

    And man, your ex sounds just like The Rat Bastard. They're POS's! Poor DS! Poor Marg! LOL

  8. Wow, what a beautiful cake! Looks yummy :) Happy Birthday, Marg's DS!

  9. Mmmm, cake. That cake looks fantastic - your sister did a great job. I should post the pics of my best friends cakes - hey, at least she tried but they are horribly funny looking.

    Happy Birthday to DS. *sigh* My Godson is 5 and I'm freaking out because he's like my son and I know Sue won't be having anymore kids (she's 45). My baby is growing up!

    Glad you're back!


  10. Cool! What a great cake. Happy b-day to your son. Mine just turned 8 in May, so they could be buddies and play together...if we didn't live a world away from each other.

    Thanks for your kind words about my new cover, and for stopping by the blog. I have to scroll down later today and read your review on Scandal in Spring!

  11. What a cutie. :) Happy birthday to him! And {{{hugs}}} to you over dealing with your ex.

    Amazing how fast they grow up, isn't it? My youngest's birthday is on Sunday. He'll be twelve. Twelve. It's unfathomable. (We won't talk about how old his siblings are. My, those are lovely pyramids, well worth the wet feet.)

  12. What a handsome young lad you have there!! I'll be looking forward to more pics. And your sister does have cake decorating talent.

  13. Gorgeous DS marg! Happy Birthday Tomi! Get some balls Ex
