It’s The Boiled Egg & Soldiers 1st Birthday Today!!!

unnamed I can’t believe it – exactly a year since my very first blog post.

I posted it on the very same day that I discovered I had won Interiors Addict’s 7 Vignettes & we toasted new beginnings with champagne & friends.

unnamed I must say that I’m very proud to have reached this little milestone but more importantly, I am delighted that I finally stopped procrastinating long enough to start!

This little blog is one of the most rewarding things that I have ever done & I am constantly delighted & amazed at the lovely, loyal following that it has. I’d like to believe that I would blog even if no one read it but I’m not sure I’d enjoy it half as much, nor keep so motivated without the lovely comments & likes that I get from you.

Thank you – it really does make my day when I hear from you & your feedback is so appreciated.

It’s been fairly crazy to get to this point & I have a feeling that things are about to get even more so as we eagerly await the arrival of our first baby in around 6 weeks time eek!

We have also just bought a new house although we aren’t moving until September & of course we are still working on The Boiled Egg & Soldiers online shop…

…….which naturally means cake!

This one is particularly scrummy – as you can tell by the big wedge already missing from it actually, If we are being honest this is in fact the second cake, the first one got demolished before I could take photos because it really is that good!
unnamed Most importantly though, it is super easy & quick to make…

maybe a little too easy & quick for this greedy Mama to be.

unnamed …….perfect to whip up & enjoy over the weekend, so I will post the recipe tomorrow morning.

IMG_2922 Alas, there are decidedly less bubbles for me today than this time last year, so I urge you all to pop the corks & celebrate all things fabulous & Friday on my behalf maybe I’ll go crazy & have a bubble bath instead!

unnamed Thanks for sticking with me so far & chin chin for the next year at The Boiled Egg & Soldiers!
