A tease and a birthday (plus a toot!)

The time has almost come! I'm SO excited and stoked to be involved with this. I have been keeping this secret for such a long time! And I know it's going to be really popular. Here's a little teaser (and no - I'm not buying a new house!).
Oh what could it be....... More on that soon...

And on to other news.... Tasmyn had her fifth birthday on the weekend. She requested a penguin cake. She loves penguins, she loves Happy Feet, she is in the penguins class at preschool. It is a real penguin year for her! She saw the penguin cake in the Womens Weekly Birthday Cake cookbook. Lucky - otherwise I'd have no idea how to do a penguin cake! I didn't have black or yellow food colouring, so he doesn't look at lot like the picture, but at least he's recognisable as a penguin! She had a great party - we only had her best friend Bella, and Bella's little brother Ollie, plus my parents, Dave's parents, his brother and sister in law. Tassy's actual birthday was on Monday and Dave had the day off. We took Tassy to the park for her first ride on her new bike. She was great! We were really impressed.

Oh - more exciting news for me - my first publication in an American magazine! This is in the June issue of Memory Makers. I'm so stoked!
