I apologise for my absence and lack of posts over the last few days but as the title may suggest, I have been a little preoccupied recently.
Yes, my darling daughter was three yesterday and the last week or so had been booked out for ‘planning’.
By that statement you would probably assume that the whole thing was a large affair with lots of guests, attractions and the odd wild animal. But you’d be wrong.
The day was a simple one. Food and drinks, at home, with the family. Simple.
If you’re organised that is.
I had made the downstairs look all birthdayish, banners balloons and the such, and the presents were wrapped and positioned correctly. This I can do, by myself whilst watching the telly.
But on the day, I just don’t work well when other people are involved. Mind you I don’t work well at the best of times, but when it involves cooking it’s best to leave it to other people. I end up forgetting times, what I’ve cooked and where I left the scissors, or I just end up eating most of it as I go along.
Anyway, all this aside, I think the day went perfectly. The daughter was delighted with all her presents (her new bike being the favourite), loved the fact that so many people came to her Rapunzel party and ate most of the food on offer. She was happy.
And a highlight of the day was the specatacular cake that was made and supplied by Aunty Amy. What little girl would not be astounded to receive a replica Disney castle?! In a hope that she reads this, thank you Amy, you are a very talented genius.
And that’s all that mattered. And as an added bonus, even after all the food and drink consumed, the usual bedtime was adhered to and it was a relatively peaceful night for everyone.
Now, how does one remove tyre tracks from one’s living room carpet…..
