So a kid having a birthday on a Tuesday, in the middle of a full week of work was not what I call practical! and I din't want another big party, so planned some fun things for the Sunday before it.
We were lucky enough through Girl Guides to receive some free tickets to an advance screening of this movie. I knew nothing about it, and wasn't sure if the girl would like it, but- AWESOME! The only thing it doesn't have is romance, but as the 'tweenie' movies of boy-meets-girl are already are hit in this house, I was kinda glad! Jokes, action, thrills, we LOVED it, so do yourself a favour when it hits the screens!
The we headed home for 'afternoon tea' with a few close friends.
Preparation began last night...
sewing is my love, not baking anymore, but I realised I have a young girl to teach, who's a willing student....
and then the cutting!
2 sleeps until she's 8!
Ta Da!!! I have seen many of these in blogland over the year, and knew I had to try it. Mild panic last night had me ring my pal for advice- thanks Cathie!
I had a pavlova too, hey, why not?
I decided to give her an early treat, the (god damn) softie she's wanted for yonks. I had to buy a new printer to make him, as there were no inkjets at work, and my old one wouldn't work with the new laptop. Jodie's instructions were great; I still managed to stuff up the first one, and was so happy the 2nd one made it!
(excuse the blue food colouring finger, that's nothing compared to the day before!!)
that says "you're awesome-sauce', by the way.
Stayed tuned for more....
