Edited to add:
Kirsti, Willow was 6 years old yesterday - and ta very muckle for the support about the no-smoking, I'm still totally amazed I've managed so far, my previous record was about 3 hours lol
Anne - I like your thinking lol and its.....
17 Sleepies til we hit the SECC
Goodness me - yesterday was just bedlam!
this is part 1 of Willow's birthday because part 2 comes on Sunday with her party.
So I was woken to all 3 of the kids bursting into my bedroom with Willow brandishing a pile of cards on one hand and money and a cheque in the other and she announced "look mum, I have tenners!" lol
She made quick work of opening her pressies from us, helped by Faith who just couldn't contain herself. There was much squealing going on and I'm surprised my eardrums are intact.
With her Hello Kitty make-up that she's been asking for for months
With the huge Hello Kitty cuddle pillow that has also been on the list for months.
With the Gruffalo (Julia Donaldson is Willow's class's author this year)
And of course we couldn't forget Princess Pepsi who did a not bad job of hoovering up all the crumbs from the floor :)
So Willow got most of the things she asked for, the rest will no doubt go on the list for Santa soon. A couple of the mums from school and my parents made a fair dent in the cupcake situation but I did manage to hide the Blueberry Cheesecake loaf - so will enjoy a slice of that with a cup of tea after I get the kids off to bed tonight, tonight will probably be the last chance I get to relax as Graham's home tomorrow. It's his birthday coming up soon - does anyone have any suggestions for gifts, what do you get a 50 something man who has just about every gadget known to man and who doesn't like sports or have time for other hobbies??
