It's' Dh's birthday tomorrow and while he was out at yet another school concert tonight, we were busy bees getting the house ready for him.
There were cards to make, an air hog (remote control helicopter which he always wanted as a boy but never got) to wrap
banners to make, balloons to inflate and hang
and, I'm so impressed with myself, a Lyle's Syrup steamed pudding to make (I have NEVER steamed a pudding and have always been intimidated) I don't have an aluminum pudding pan and didn't know whether this would work but the glass dish seems to have worked just fine. I'll let you know tomorrow how it tastes, when we serve it with warm Bird's custard sauce (can you tell Dh is English??)
I'm so excited for him!
