The excitement, the build up, the preparation, the sleepless night before, the presents, the food, the guests, the cake… and that’s just me!
I love the kiddo’s birthdays. A pottery painting party was a 1st for us. 13 children sitting quietly, concentrating on painting their chosen piece. Bliss. Until… they’ve finished! Now what?! Over an hour to go, pottery is painted, pottery ladies have ditched us and I have 12 girls, my 4 year old and a baby to amuse. Cue stringing out food and cake until he bitter end! All in all a fab party though. Perhaps not one I will attempt again. 13 children happy, piles of sweets in hand and a beaming birthday girl, exhausted from a fabulous day.
