Last weekend we celebrated the 3rd birthday of this cool kid, in robot style. His Mum had thought of plenty of clever food and party decorating ideas, so I had to really widen my ideas file to make our gifts robot-like.
It began with this caribena pouch filled with a few treats.

Then a picture: made, wrapped and decorated by Elara.

A robot wristband (now who hasn't wanted one of these before)!

And finally some robot cupcakes (an amateur version of these). Beware...I will only make these for very special people...they took a long time (though not so long to be devoured by hungry kids at the birthday party)!

Yes, I must have found my overdrive button after all. What a shame I couldn't just plug in to the power socket and recharge after all that crafting and baking!

Tasmania Top Ten (a Mother's version)

1. Tasmanian apples straight from the farm

2. My favourite town of Dover

3. Mother's Day picnic lunch at Richmond

4. Church buildings of all kinds...grand, old and quirky.

5. Curry at Annapurna Indian restaurant.
6. Family sing-along to this cd, while driving, driving, driving...
7. Salamanca markets. Oh how I wish I'd bought a raspberry swirl meringue! Or some tempura mushrooms!
8. Breakfast on my birthday.

9. Those autumn leaves that we largely miss in Queensland

10. And best of all, time with the family.
