It’s her party and I’ll cry if I want to!
I have just come out the other side of planning, preparing and hosting a three year olds birthday party. Someone pass me the wine!!
Not only did I decide to hold a party for 20 of Charlotte’s closest friends (and the parents that go with them), but I decided to give myself one day of prep time as we only arrived home from hols on Friday! I am a glutton for punishment what can I say!!
I also found myself dismissing the ready made, perfectly acceptable ‘Frozen’ cake from tesco as it was £10 and I would need two. So instead I bought ingredients for a cake I could make and decorate only to realise I’d probably just spent more than £20!! The Frozen cakes also wouldn’t have involved going to bed at 12.30am last night and waking up at 6.30am this morning to ice the bloody thing! I have to say I was happy with the result and it’s always a good feeling when it’s done but…seriously…I don’t make things easy for myself do I??
Safe to say this morning was fraught with sandwich making, cake icing, pizza cooking, salad chopping and I even managed to fit in a shower! The fact my hair wasn’t dry as we exited the flat is not the point!
Thank goodness for friends and family who helped me once we’d got there or else I may have had to sit in the corner of the village hall and rock quietly!
So now I have a threenager…help me!!
