Well, Penny said that she had the most wonderful 21st birthday few days!
On her actual birthday, last Wednesday, she had her exam, which went well and then in the evening Hugh and I took her out for a meal, which was very tasty and very filling!

On Friday evening Hugh, Penny and I got the train up to London and went to the Cambridge Theatre to see Matilda - what can I say? It was absolutely fantastic. If you get the chance you must go to see it - not only was the young girl playing Matilda brilliant, the rest of the cast were fantastic too. I can see why it won all the awards it did.
On Saturday Ben came home for the weekend and Penny was thrilled to spend some time with him. She also spent the day baking, as she wanted to make her own birthday cake!
Yes, it did taste as good as it looks! Chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream, chocolate cigarillos around the outside and the middle filled with Maltesers!
Sunday saw the end of the celebrations with a final party when the family from Hemel came over for lunch. We had planned on a bbq, but the weather was not kind, so I ended up cooking everything under the grill and in the oven!
Emily helping Penny to open her birthday presents! We are thinking of making the hat a family heirloom as we actually bought it for Ben and then kept it for Penny! Another 3 years and we can pass it on to Henry!
I love this photo of Henry, my Dad and Hugh, they were laughing at something Ben had said!
My Mum captured me doing what I do best ....
getting ready to take photos! I have loads more from all of Penny's celebrations and no doubt I will be sharing them with you on scrapbook layouts in the future!
