Birthdays, Ben 10, Brooches, Bums





















Well actually no bums, but I bet that got you excited! Yesterday was Wills 5th birthday and today was his party so it has been pretty much non-stop baking, clearing, wrapping, planning, shouting, chaos for 48hours. My head hurts. Will received loads of lovely Ben 10 toys, Lego, books, clothes, a bike, Power Rangers, you name it really. If it was plastic and did something violent and/or gross it was on the list. He was in his element. I did a home made Ben 10 chocolate cake. (Please don't point out to Will that I managed to melt Wild-vines arm with a candle!) Today we had five little friends round for a Kung-Fu Panda party complete with Kung-Fu statues, chocolate chopstick race and Origami. Everyone was really good, well actually Will lost the plot a bit at one point but it all came right in the end. I was really pleased when M, who had minded both my children from a few months dropped in during lunch. She is a very calming influence and bought Will the ace hand-knitted hat. After all the plastic and packaging he was delighted with it and proceeded to prat about and generally be the boy we all know and love. I am very proud of him.

Determined to slip some crafting in I noticed Mum had no adornment for her posh winter coat and as she treated me to some lovely flecked wool I knocked her up a Jenny special with which I am very pleased. The buttons came from a massive bag for £5 which will be popping up everywhere. I am looking forward to a couple of sane weeks before the Xmas madness.

We've had one party for Anya (who turns 5 on Tuesday) and have another today. Luckily it is the grandparents and aunties etc today so it won't be as noisy as yesterday - hopefully! That cake looks delicious :)
