March in review

So March is over and the first quarter of the year as well. We started the month with the last (but not least of course) of the kids birthday celebrations and of course more baking. I am not going to hide that I am pleased that the "birthday season" is over for another year!

I had a lot on my list again this month and especially lots of catch up I was hoping to do and I must say it worked pretty well. Let's have a look now and plan next month!
