Let’s Be Pen Pals

“We are plain quiet folk and have no use for  adventures.
Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things!
Make you late for dinner!!”
-The Hobbit

Earlier this year we honoured our beautiful daughter on her 16th birthday.
As we are all arduous Tolkien fans, there was no question as to the theme of this event…
..and what an event it was!
Welcome to the Shire!
“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold,
 it would be a merrier world.”








” Bilbo had a horrible thought that the cakes might run short, and then he,
 – as the host: he knew his duty and stuck to it, however painful-
he might have to go without!”
The bottom layer of the cake was carrot and walnut, 
with chocolate sour cream  cake on the top. 
I was really pleased with how well the cake turned out and thought it suited the theme beautifully.


“The road goes ever on and on
Under cloud and under star,
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.”
Happy 16th Birthday precious daughter…..
“May the hair on your toes never fall out!!”
We all love you.
