Sorry I've been MIA! It was Eleri's birthday on Thursday - my baby was 6!, and it's Andrew's birthday tomorrow - he'll be 10 - time is flying by so fast! So I've been frantically making preparations, a couple of nights I was up til about 1 in the morning. So I have a few things to show you over the next few days, but not had chance to load photos onto the computer yet.
Eleri had a little party today - four of her friends from school came to our house - never again!!! We made bracelets and keyrings to start with, but then Eleri got upset because I wouldn't let her open one of her presents to play with - so that was one wail that seemed to go on for ages. Pass the parcel went well. Then they were going to play one of the Just Dance games on the wii and Eleri and one of her friends had a little disagreement over one of the remote controls (how that could happen when there were four players and four remotes I don't know LOL!), so they both got upset! Then it was time for food, and that was going well until another of the little girls was sick (aaarrrgghh!!). Poor little thing, she hadn't eaten very much so I'm pretty sure it wasn't my food - we think she's got the bug which has been going around school for the past few days. So we didn't get chance to light the candles for Eleri's birthday cake because, by the time I'd cleaned the little girl up and got her in some clean clothes and then cleaned the floor, it was time for everyone to leave. Whew, what an afternoon! (don't think I want one like that again though LOL!)
Never mind, we'll be doing it again tomorrow for Andrew, so we'll be blowing two lots of candles out tomorrow I think. The boys are 9/10 so it should be easier tomorrow, plus Richard will be home to help this time! I have threatened to go out and leave Richard to cope with the boys tomorrow, especially as he's b******ed off out for a drink tonight (ha, ha, ha!!!) Couldn't do that to him really though!
Look out for some photos of what I've been up to soon!
Love, Andrea xx
