Apologies for being a bit behind posting these, but at least I've actually remembered to take the photos! Plus, I took another look at my day zero list and I actually put that I need to blog once a month, not once a week, so I'm doing better than I planned already!
Day 17's photo shows the preparation needed to pull of such an amazing rainbow party with our shopping list - if you look carefully you'll see just how many eggs the rainbow cake called for!
Day 18 would have been a sneak preview into the rainbow jelly if I'd posted this earlier!
Day 19 shows the amazing carpet at my friends house. It's so thick and fluffy, and you can lose things in it! I think it'd make an interesting desktop wallpaper.
Day 20 was the last day of preparation before the rainbow party and everything went without hiccup except for the orange layer of the rainbow cake which decided to disintegrate. The layers of the cake were intentionally thin so that the rainbow cake wouldn't be gigantic but it did make it a slightly more delicate process when moving and assembling the cakes. Thankfully the damage wasn't too bad and I could stick it back together with the icing.
Day 21 was a day of many photos but I decided to feature one from after the party for the challenge. My friend brought along some rainbow glow sticks that attached together to make a circle so after everyone had left we had fun spinning it round in the dark and trying to capture it on the camera. I'm not quite there yet with my camera, it may be purple but it is also quite complicated if trying to do something unusual instead of just using auto. This is another thing on my to do list so hopefully I'll get better at the photo taking. Hopefully Ian will get better at spinning stuff without letting go and nearly taking out the cake too!
Day 22 sees us ignoring the clear instructions on our new lego set and assembling it on the carpet! We're such rebels. This was a much simpler set to the ones we do at new years so it didn't take long to put together but it was good fun and now we have lego pigs!
Day 23's picture wouldn't have had such a terrible description if I'd written about it on the day I took the photo. This is because on the 23rd, I didn't know that the pizza we had would be the first takeaway in a run of five nights of takeaway! I'm so ashamed! (Week 5 will bring good news on this front though so don't worry, I'm doing better now).
