I have a reputation

Today was THE day. Party mania descended.

The house and garden looked clean and tidy. Party bags had been sewn. Packed lunch boxes were prepared. Gazebos were erected. Every last chair from every corner of the house was found and placed conveniently for a parental bottom.

We were ready.

We had a colouring in competition, several installments of a treasure hunt, and egg and spoon race, a make an outfit out of newspaper and sellotape competition and associated catwalk show, a snowball fight (ripped off newspaper outfits screwed up into balls and then hurled mostly at the grown ups), pin the tail on the donkey, pass the parcel (x 3), party tea and cake candle blowing and singing 'Happy Birthday'.

All activities earned some or all party goers money that they could then spend in the party shop, buying party loot for the party bag.

Once I have the video of the catwalk newspaper fashion show, I will post on YouTube and share the link with you.

But for now I have a reputation. The party went well and people will expect repeat performances. Oh, the pressure.
