Birthday party day

April turned four on the 30th October.  We decided this year we would do a birthday party for her, we have previously had them in the house but this year we thought we would go all out and have a proper party.  I think 4 is the best age, for April anyway, as she knew what it was all about, knew what fun was to be had and wasn’t too overwhelmed.  

Me however.  Ahhhhhh I had lists coming out of my ears.   I organised entertainers who did a disco and party games but I still felt there was a lot to do.  I am a bit of a prefectionsist, or I try to be, so I always felt there was something I had forgot.   It was great fun coming up with little ideas and fun party prizes and party bags.  

April had a blast, all the kids did.   Was all worth it seeing the smile on their faces.  Even better when she got Olaf to join the party.  Well done me.  I deserved my glass of wine when it was all over 

Bake bake cake

Remind me next year that I just need to buy a cake, go to shop and let April pick a cake from the supermarket.  Soooooo much easier.   After all do kids really bother if it’s homemade. Do they care how it actually tastes.  April doesn’t even eat cake but there I am with a recipe which has 10 eggs in it.   What was I thinking !

Youtube open for my lesson on buttercream and off I went .  The results, gladly, was a lovely cake. And a very messy kitchen, icing that got everywhere , 6 hours gone from my day as well as £30. Again.  Remind me next year to buy a cake.   I was however very very impressed by myself lol.  

Nothing ever goes as you plan

Just a short wee post.  This weekend I had it full of lots of activities and non stop fun but. …..   best laid plans never happen.   I woke up at around 2:30 with a head cold.   Seriously I’m too busy so please go away …. just in case you think that worked.  It didn’t .  I fell asleep again around 4 and my gorgeous girl woke me at 8.  I still had the head cold .   

Well had to change a few things but in the end it was still a good day.  We got baking the cakes for tomorrow and had fun doing that.  

The pumpkins didn’t get done and the pumpkin patch/farm didn’t get visited. However we will still have fun making pumpkin faces on Monday.  Maybe even Sunday night on her birthday .  Moral of my blog.  Have to go with the flow 😂
