Today my little love turned 4. It’s hard to imagine life without her in it, but at the same time it’s hard to believe it’s been four years since I first met her.
She is, without doubt, my greatest achievement.
She is my little eco baby…she’s made very little impact on the world in terms of her carbon footprint. She was breastfed until she was 3 years and 3 months, she was cloth bummed and she’s been a vegetarian since she was in utero! Who knows where life will lead her, but to me she’ll always be special. She is a really loving and caring little girl. She has a gift with animals and her character is phenomenal. I truly believe she’ll end up on the stage!
Yesterday we celebrated her birthday with her Papa (My Dad) at the Farm Park. She had a blast (there was of course no vegan scran) and today we celebrated her birthday again with her Gran & Granda (my Mum and step Dad), her Granny B (My Gran), Uncle Chris and Aunty Megan and her wee cousin: Violet and Granny L (my step Gran).
We had a bouncy castle, which gave us ALL hours and hours of entertainment! I actually think the adults possibly enjoyed it even more than the wains…if that’s at all possible.
We all played outside the entire day. She was very much a happy wee girl.
My Mum, as usual, outdid herself with her food. She made us Sweet Potato and White Bean Chilli with brown rice and the most amazing guacamole. She had picked every item to ensure it was all vegan. The only thing on the table that was not suitable for us was the cheese and chive dip (and later, the chocolate fountain!).
After the main she did crisps, dips and bread sticks with olives etc. Again, She had made the dips herself and ensured everything was SFV.
She also made us vegan ice cream sundaes with chocolate ice cream, fresh fruit and oatly cream! (Forgot a pic…was far too excited).
We finished off the meal with a gorgeous coconut milk cappuccino and a vegan nut bar!
Overall, she did an amazing job of catering for us.
She said it took her 3 hours doing to shopping as she had to read every packet. But…she pulled it off. 10/10 for the food Mum…and 5 stars for the entertainment!
It’s been a fabulous weekend. Tomorrow we’ll be doing nothing as we need a rest from all the excitment.
On a side note. I tried the most amazing puddings yesterday….
You can buy these in Sainsburys. They’re £2 for 4…but trust me, they’re worth every penny. (I demolished all 4 🙈).
I don’t usually post pictures of Bette on here….but today is Bette day, so it seems fitting.
Happy BETTEday baby. When I count my blessings I ALWAYS count you twice.
Goodnight from a very tired family. ✌💗
