It was Duncan’s sixth birthday at the weekend which proved to be a remarkably relaxed affair. One of the coaches from Duncan’s weekly football training would come and give a fun session for Duncan and a group of his friends. There was a bit of injury time but thankfully no red cards (although the birthday boy indulged in a bit of cheating). Conveniently, having booked the sports hall at work, you can’t bring your own food, so the party tea was catered for admirably by the clubhouse. That just left the cake which some bright spark had decided should be in the shape of a football. Christine baked the two halves and then, whilst she enjoyed an evening with her book group mums, muggins was left to convert them in to something resembling a football! The end result seemed to pass muster though.
