Is £40 to put a child's hair in a bun too expensive?

(108 Posts)
sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 16:11:03

I asked my regular hairdresser if she could do DD1s hair for her 1st communion, we have to be at the church for 9am so I asked her if she could come round at 8am to give her enough time etc she said 8.30 but I thought this would be pushing it a bit. She said that's fine and it would be £40 and is that ok with me?

I was thinking £25-30 max £40 seems a bit expensive but what do I do?

Say oh that's a bit expensive and risk her saying well that's the cost and her not do it or just pay it

For comparison last time she charged me £50 to cut my long hair and the 4 DCs hair.

I like the idea of having her hair professionally done and having someone cone to the house to do it.

Fillyjonk75 Fri 12-Apr-13 16:13:05

I think it's loads! It would only take her 5-10 minutes. Get yourself some bun pins, a bobble, hairspray and a brush and watch how to do it on YouTube.

Trills Fri 12-Apr-13 16:13:21

£40 to do a house visit is not an unreasonable thing for a hairdresser to ask.

Paying £40 (or anything really) to have a child's hair put into a bun is quite possibly a bit unreasonable.

TheYoniOfYawn Fri 12-Apr-13 16:13:50

I put my daughters hair into a bun for ballet exams. It is very easy to do yourself.

NatashaBee Fri 12-Apr-13 16:13:53

Ouch. Is she charging you double time as it's a Sunday or something?

SanityClause Fri 12-Apr-13 16:13:55

D'you mean 8:00 on a Sunday morning?

In which case, it's cheap, IMO.

Celestia Fri 12-Apr-13 16:14:01

£40?! Yanbu!

To be fair to the hairdresser, it sounds like you need her before her usual 'opening time' so I guess that's what you're paying for.

CocacolaMum Fri 12-Apr-13 16:14:35

My hairdresser charged me £40 for my hair and my daughters for my wedding!! Do your daughters hair yourself - if the style you want is a simple one then learn it and spend the £40 on a day out for your family!

CunfuddledAlways Fri 12-Apr-13 16:14:45

can't you do a bun yourself??

MrsLettuce Fri 12-Apr-13 16:15:00

I was going to say YAblantentlyNBU but with it being 'antisocial hours' and a home visit (assuming she's normally salon based) it's probably more or less reasonable.

YwouldnotBU to shop around.

EmpireBiscuit Fri 12-Apr-13 16:15:12

I pay £50 for a full head of highlights and a trim at home. £40 for a basic put up is loads.

sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 16:15:41

I can do buns but they are never perfect, I've done them for ballet shows but they never look right IYSWIM, if you go to a hairdressers for your own hair to be put up its about £30 is it not?

MintyyAeroEgg Fri 12-Apr-13 16:15:51

I think she doesn't really want to do it and that's why she's priced it so high.

At 8:00am on a Sunday I'd say fair bump in price.

KatoPotato Fri 12-Apr-13 16:17:21

With a bun donut you can do it yourself so easy! - high pony, pop a £1 donut from primark over, split the hair over, secure with a second bobble and wrap/tuck the ends under.

BackforGood Fri 12-Apr-13 16:17:48

Extortionate amount! shock but what I guess she's charging for is a) travelling to you, ans b) anti-social hours.
A bun really is easy to do, so there's no way I'd waste £40 on that.

pippibluestocking Fri 12-Apr-13 16:17:54

It's easy to do a bun yourself. Gather up hair into a high pony tail, twist it and wrap it around on itself, put a bun net over it, maybe wrapping it over twice if the bun is small, p

sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 16:18:03

She's a mobile hairdresser not salon based, yes it's 8am on a Sat morning so I'm guessing that's why it's so costly.

KatoPotato Fri 12-Apr-13 16:19:02
currentbuns Fri 12-Apr-13 16:19:10

I'll wager there's a YouTube step-by-step tutorial out there somewhere showing you exactly how to do it yourself.

SqueakyCleanNameChange Fri 12-Apr-13 16:19:24

If you wanted me to give up my only lie in of the week and get up at stupid o clock on a Sunday I'd probably charge through the nose too. Try YouTube.

<makes mental note to take own advice before DD is kicked out of ballet class>

sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 16:19:36

Mintyaeroegg - I've thought that myself that she doesn't want to do it. She lives about 3 miles away too

EchoBitch Fri 12-Apr-13 16:20:54

I don't think it's alot,she'll have to be up and out at 7.30am on a Saturday.
I'd do it myself it it were me,but i'm rubbish at hair so i'd have to pay the going rate too.

tiggytape Fri 12-Apr-13 16:21:02

She doesn't want to do it but doesn't like to say so - that's why she said 8:30am instead of 8am and also charged such a high price for good measure hoping it will put you off the idea.

sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 16:21:07

It's a Saturday morning not a Sunday and I know she's always busy on a Sat she says she doesn't do wedding hair unless its for an existing client.

The communion is at 10am (you have to be there for 9am) everywhere else is 12 midday hmm

Tortington Fri 12-Apr-13 16:21:20

at that time on a sunday morning - i think fair enough.

but a bun is a bun is a bun

i have long hair - its not hard.

the trick is leave one long strand at the back of the head out of the bun,

do the bun by twirtling hair and securing with a covered elastic,

then comes the magic

wrap the spare strand round where the elastic is so it covers it, and secure in place with a pin

AIBU to ask is she not having a veil? and if so - wont that hide slight imperfections

Floggingmolly Fri 12-Apr-13 16:21:34

It's the house visit at unsociable hours she'll be charging for. I pay a fiver (every day for a week hmm) when dd's annual ballet show rolls round.

Tortington Fri 12-Apr-13 16:21:40

oops saturday ok - still fair enough

XBenedict Fri 12-Apr-13 16:23:12

Ouch that is expensive! Try it yourself, it's really not difficult. DD uses one of those donuts from Claire's/Boots - even easier. smile

sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 16:24:15

She has a tiara (DD1 not the hairdresser) then her veil is on a comb to go into the back of her hair IYSWIM.

If I say no now will she get all offended and no I think it's too expensive?

sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 16:24:53

I have a donut did it for her ballet and dance shows but it never looks quite right hmm

DeskPlanner Fri 12-Apr-13 16:28:49

It's not £40, just to put your dds hair In a bun though is it ? It's her coming to your house, on a Sunday at 8am. That's what your paying for. She's not going to want to do all that for less than £40.

sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 16:33:12

Deskplanner - it's a Saturday yes I understand its unsociable hours and was prepared to pay a bit more, it's a 20 min round trip and what 15 mins to put her hair up so just over half an hour, I still think £40 is expensive.

She's always telling me she works flexi hours so will work mornings/evenings and weekends, she often comes to us at 6pm.

BackforGood Fri 12-Apr-13 16:37:42

No, she won't be offended - she's priced it so high as she doesn't really want to do it I'd have thought.

Heinz55 Fri 12-Apr-13 16:37:44

The secret to a professional looking bun is a donut - as I've just discovered!! you can get them in Claires or H&M. I'm completely against overspending on a ceremony that is supposed to be about the religious aspect and not the crazy amounts people spend to make their dd's look like mini brides so YABU to spend anything on your childs hair for her communion.

HerrenaHarridan Fri 12-Apr-13 16:38:44

I suppose it depends on your budget but I would laugh at you tbh.

Just do it yourself ffs it's a bun!

If your desperate to spend your money you can get fancy brushes to help the hair sit flat, super dooper bobbles and some stunning bun nets. Watch a few tutorials on YouTube and do a couple of practice runs.

MrsMangelFanciedPaulRobinson Fri 12-Apr-13 16:41:42

I think it's a silly amount.

Buy a bun ring for £1 in Primark, a few grips, couple of hair bobbles and you can do it yourself at home. I do my DD's hair like this all the time and it looks very neat.

MammaTJ Fri 12-Apr-13 16:43:41

I don't think she will be offended if you say no, she doesn't sound as though she wants to do it, tbh.

Pandemoniaa Fri 12-Apr-13 16:44:02

I can understand why she'd want to charge £40. As others have said, you are asking her to come out at an unsociable time on a Saturday in order to do a professional job. It might well be that it suits her to work at 6pm. That's not the same as 8.30 in the morning. Also, if you want a professional job then you need to be prepared to pay for it.

However, I do think it is probably a waste of money given that you could almost certainly do the job yourself if you want a few tutorials on the internet and get the right accessories.

Got to say that I'm amazed that children wear tiaras for First Communion nowadays but that's just me being an eye-rolling old gimmer.

coreny Fri 12-Apr-13 16:45:31

8.00 a.m. is an early start and Saturday is peak time. She's probably charging full price i.e. what she'd charge to do an adult's hair.

I pay £28 for ds2's hair if I go in during the week, but if I go in on a saturday it's £38 as it's peak time.

sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 16:46:05

Thanks ladies the voice of reason as always, I thought it was expensive for a bun.

It's 6 weeks away I could practise couldn't I? I could get good in 6 weeks

I don't mind spending money on things that will last but chances are she will say its hurting her and take it out in a few hours.

NoWayNoHow Fri 12-Apr-13 16:48:38

Yy, I would definitely spend 6 weeks practising! £40 is a lot of money to pay for the difference between"not quite right" and"right" IMO.

Longdistance Fri 12-Apr-13 16:52:40

That's silly expensive. I used to put my hair in a bun for work nearly every day, itssimple.
1) scrape the hair back, and put into a pony tail with a same colour as her hair, hairband.

2) slip on a small donut, or if shr

MrsBethel Fri 12-Apr-13 16:56:56

Is £40 too much?

Yes.

Longdistance Fri 12-Apr-13 16:56:59

Or if she has long hair a larger one.

3) fan her hair out over the donut like a fountain.

4) get some same coloured pins as her hair, and in sections little by little pin bits of hair to the donut, and hair.

5) making sure you tuck the ends in.

6) some hairspray to keep it all in hold for the special day.

It's not too much to charge, but I would think it's too much to pay.

picnicbasketcase Fri 12-Apr-13 16:58:57

I think it's nuts to pay that for such an uncomplicated hairstyle but if you want it looking as neat as possible and can afford to pay it, your decision I guess smile

Yes its too much, depends whether its within your personal budget.
If its too much for you to pay, i would get a decent spray, bobbypins & bun secure watch a vid on youtube and diy.

Floggingmolly Fri 12-Apr-13 17:13:59

It's just a bun!. It may be to you, but my dd has enough hair for at least three people, in a big curly mop. I wouldn't pay forty quid, though.

RatRatRat Fri 12-Apr-13 17:19:04

Eek! I think £25 is the max I've ever paid to have mine out up and it's long and thick. This was in a salon though - I thought a major selling point of mobile hairdressers was that they were cheaper.

Zingy123 Fri 12-Apr-13 17:23:57

That's extortionate. My hairdresser did my two girls hair for DD1's communion. She came in and opened the shop an hour early. She charged me £20 in total. It's Dd2`s in june and she is charging me the same. I can do buns but for their Holy Communion you want it to be perfect.

sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 17:41:13

Right I had a go grin its ok DD1 has very thick wavy hair, it's quite long as well, the bin bit was easy with the donut but tucking in the ends was a nightmare, she has too much hair!

Am thinking of straightening her hair the night before to make it more manageable, stop the little frizzies popping up

NewFerry Fri 12-Apr-13 18:06:12

Do you definitely have your heart set on a bun?
DD wore hers loose with the veil and headpiece over the top. It looked very pretty and age appropriate.
And was a lot less bother (spoken as a ballet bun mum)!

MsTimTam Fri 12-Apr-13 18:22:30

The best advice I got for doing buns was lots of gel before you do the ponytail - it really helps eliminate all the fuzzies and gets a lovely smooth finish.
My daughter has very thick, long hair and I found it easier to do a bun without a donut as there is too much to tuck into one. After doing the ponytail I split it into two sections. I twisted and pinned the first section in bun shape, then pinned the second section around the first one (hope that makes sense!) then put a bun net over the top and pinned that as well, then finished with hairspray.
Good luck smile

GilmoursPillow Fri 12-Apr-13 18:25:50

Google "sock bun". It could save you a fair amount.

PenguinBear Fri 12-Apr-13 18:31:46

Where in the Uk are you op? If I'm nearby, I'll come and do it for free! smile

soverylucky Fri 12-Apr-13 18:32:09

I agree with pp who said about letting your dd wear her hair down. A bun with veil is quite "bridal".

Either way practice and save yourself the money.

3littlefrogs Fri 12-Apr-13 18:32:46

The way I used to do dd's hair:

Brush hair thoroughly, tip head back and put hair in a pony tail at the height you want. Ensure no lumps anywhere. Divide into 3 sections, plaiting each one, one at a time. Secure the end of each plait with a small band. Wrap each plait around the pony tail band and use hair pins to secure.

Cover the whole thing with a bun net and use more hair pins to anchor the net in place.

Use a little bit of hair gel to smooth all the wispy bits into place.

I agree that the hairdresser probably doesn't want to do it.

Yonionekanobe Fri 12-Apr-13 18:33:46

Way to much. I had an 'up do' for a wedding recently and it cost that with make up in Central London.

Yonionekanobe Fri 12-Apr-13 18:33:59

too much even blush

dancemom Fri 12-Apr-13 18:44:22

Hair pins are the key! Dd needs her hair in a bun for her dance classes so I had to learn! Hair in a pony tail, put donut over ponytail and then pin donut in with hair pins, keeps it extra secure! Then cover donut with hair, secure with small bobble and wrap and pin hair until all secure. I also use one of those fake hair plait hairbands around the bun to cover and gaps, pins, fly always and makes it look even better!

Flojobunny Fri 12-Apr-13 18:47:43

Did you ask her to put it in a bun or did you ask her to do your DD hair for communion? Maybe she's thinking wash, cut, blow dry, style.

1944girl Fri 12-Apr-13 18:51:57

My grandaughter had her first Holy Communion last year.She had her hair long and loose, straightened,with a veil and headband.
We had to be at church for 9am for photographs by school photographer.
This hairstyle is no trouble at all.First Holy Communion is after all a religious occasion, not a fashion and bridal show.
The catchechists had asked that we did not overdo it in terms of the children's dress and hairstyles. And the church was a cathedral.
If you prefer your daughter's hair in a bun with a tiara, go and do it, but dont spend too much money.'
Remember what it is all about in the religious sense.

wigglesrock Fri 12-Apr-13 18:52:37

It's dear - my hairdresser offered to do dds for £12 - her salon is open at 8.30 on a Sat but I just decided to have her hair down with her veil and bits and bobs.

Ps my daughter's is in 6 weeks at 10am wink

Catbert4pm Fri 12-Apr-13 18:54:13

I don't think she wants to do it. Can one of the other communion mums (or a friend or neighbour) help instead. I used to be useless at buns to begin with, but I am ok now smile

3littlefrogs Fri 12-Apr-13 19:15:25

I agree, it isn't a fashion show.

I didn't go for the whole miniature wedding dress thing when dd did her first communion. Just a very simple dress, and some small, fresh flowers in her hair.

I wouldn't worry too much, I think it is important that your dd is comfortable with whatever style you choose.

Ra88 Fri 12-Apr-13 19:16:36

That's Is way over priced ! Should cost £10-£15 max!!! ( my moms a hairdresser)

sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 19:22:41

I thought a bun would be nice, plain but elegant, I like the idea of wrapping a fake plait around to hide the strands. DD1 would have a big fat gypsy weddings style dress if I allowed her, she loves sparkles.

Will also experiment with having her hair down, it will need straightened.

Wigglesrock - you aren't in the middle of Scotland are you?

Oh I texted the hairdresser back saying to be honest I think that's a bit dear and I know it's an early start and I would just do it myself but thanks anyway, she came back saying that's understandable and I'm sure she will be beautiful.

Now to get practising.

toffeelolly Fri 12-Apr-13 19:23:28

Yes dead easy to do , do my dd's before school, only take's 5 mins.wink

sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 19:26:01

At DD2s first confession last month it was school uniform but some of the girls had OTT hairdos, ringlets with sparkly crosses. Can you imagine their communion next year? DD2 thinks she is a boy, if she's in a dress it will be the simplest one ever and there will be no tiara grin

wigglesrock Fri 12-Apr-13 19:26:44

No across the water smile I'm straightening my dds and putting the veil at the back. When I say I, I actually mean my sister - I'm shite with hair smile

My DD2 had a bun for her communion. I put it in a donut and then covered it all with an Irish dancing curly bun wig so it looked like a very curly bun. The veil went behind the bun and the tiara in front. I then pinned a few sparkly hair pins through the bun to keep it all together.

If I recall correctly the bun wig was about £12 and she looked as if she had spent hours in the hairdressers. grin

I'll have a look to see if I can find a link to the sort of thing I mean.

LynetteScavo Fri 12-Apr-13 19:53:17

It's a lot to pay out, but if you really want the hair to look perfect, and can't find anyone else to do it cheeper.....

(I'm having the same issue about cake...do I practice a lot or just order one....?)

I'm shock about hair-do's for first confession! DD had her's recently and parents were taking photo's. I was hmm

Curly wig

I hope that works.

sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 19:56:59

Lynette I am making her cake, I've made quite a few cakes before, I'm ordering a topper and personalised ribbons from eBay, then it's just sponge and icing which is easy enough, I reckon even with the topper it will cost half the price. A woman last year asked me to make cupcakes instead of a cake and was really happy with them.

wigglesrock Fri 12-Apr-13 19:57:56

Dd1 made her First Confession last year. They do each of them a year apart. And I was surprised at how it was suddenly such a big thing. I mean obviously the sacrament is. But people were going out for lunch afterwards and they were definitely fivers being exchanged smile

lydiamama Fri 12-Apr-13 19:58:43

It is too expensive for me, I cannot afford that much. Would you fancy to give it a go yourself? That I really love, I can spend hours practising styles. Is your little ones hair short or long?

LynetteScavo Fri 12-Apr-13 20:42:30

I've never heard about first confessions a year before first communion. Around here the DC just rock up on a school night in February. There were about 40 DC, and when the priest invited them to come forward, I have never seen so many keen children. There was was jostling to be first in line!

No one dressed up!

sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 20:43:43

DD1s hair is a nightmare it's long thick and wavy, tugs very easily, looks messy all the time I would have to straighten it.

We're just having a few people back to our house afterwards but I know there's halls being hired etc

wigglesrock Fri 12-Apr-13 20:48:48

First confession in P3 here, First Communion in P4. When I was at school we did both in P3 but they moved Communion to P4.

LynetteScavo Fri 12-Apr-13 20:50:34

DD has a fringeless bob. I'm just scooping the front bits of her hair to the back, and sticking in a veil with a comb to hold it in place.

I couldn't even do a French plait, let alone a bun!

mysteryfairy Fri 12-Apr-13 20:57:28

The salon where I get my hair done has its first appointment at 8am on a Saturday - I regularly go then so it eats up as little of the day as possible. I think if you want her hair up you could look around and find an open salon to do it for less than £40 unless you live somewhere very remote. However my DD made her first communion at 9am Mass on a Sunday and we had to be there at 8.30 so I made the decision to have her hair down as I knew we would be rushed and tense and unable to appreciate the occasion for what it was if we were crowbarring early morning hairdressing in. You might be a less stressy/better early in the morning person than me though!

sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 21:34:20

Same here as Wigglesrock First Confession P3 (age 7) first communion P4 (age 8). It's all so alien to me I'm not RC no one on my side of the family is, DHs family are the only communion I've been to is DHs neice about 11 years ago. MIL is dead, SIL next to useless, FIL dead too, have no contact with my mother so am relying on other Mums really. hmm

TheChaoGoesMu Fri 12-Apr-13 22:20:49

Why dont you put it into rag ringlets overnight. Its very easy and looks pretty. Theres lots of youtube videos on how to do it.

sweetkitty Fri 12-Apr-13 22:26:04

Thanks there too many ideas on here pity DD1 hates getting her hair done hmm

MrsLettuce Fri 12-Apr-13 22:37:00

Another reason to go with having it loose...

Longdistance Fri 12-Apr-13 23:02:34

Don't wash het hair before doing it. It's easier to do an up do with the hair a little bit unwashed, like two days unwashed.
If you're unsure, try a little Baptiste dry shampoo, its cheap in body care stores.
As for the ends, try wrapping them around and under the bun where the hairband is. If all else fails, try s larger bun.
Good luck smile

canyou Fri 12-Apr-13 23:47:23

Could you get a salon to do her hair on fri evening at the last appt and put a scarf or net over it to keep it in place. That is what is done around here

NewFerry Sat 13-Apr-13 07:55:22

Ok, if you are set on a bun, have you tried putting her hair in a high ponytail, then plait the pony tail, then twist the plait into a bun.
It's much easier as the hair is in one long braid.

SavoyCabbage Sat 13-Apr-13 08:01:43
SavoyCabbage Sat 13-Apr-13 08:04:10

sock bun.
Second time lucky!

Geordieminx Sat 13-Apr-13 08:06:07

I'll come and do it SK if you want? Not a hairdresser but pretty good at doing my own?

GeneHuntsMistress Sat 13-Apr-13 10:15:09

I have to do buns for DD's ballet. I've found a bun net makes an amazing difference to the finish, looks so much neater AND stays in the whole time until you take them out! A Revelation to me (another clueless hair do-er despite having reeeaaaallly long hair until 28 years old).

weegiemum Sat 13-Apr-13 10:22:16

If you're in Glasgow, my hair expert dd1 will come round and do it for £5 plus travel!,

soverylucky Sat 13-Apr-13 10:35:34

Starting to think about dd's communion now. She has second hand dress, a white ribbon and I was planning on washing her hair the night before. We are not having a party, a cake or anything. Should I be planning something?

NewFerry Sat 13-Apr-13 11:02:20

We had family travel from a fair instance to attend the first communion so we had a buffet at the house, plus a special cake.
Traditionally most families will do something special to mark the occasion. With DS we all went out for a special lunch then everyone came back to the house for coffee and cake.
IME the parish often have refreshments ar the parish or school hall after the mass.

NewFerry Sat 13-Apr-13 11:04:44

Also, a nice way to mark the occasion is to give your dd a small gift such as a first holy communion mass book or bible, or some special rosary beads.

mum11970 Sat 13-Apr-13 11:06:29

Hair in pony tail, bun ring, clips. Easy as pie. I'm not expert in hair styling, having had short hair for a majority of my life, but a bun is pretty easy with a bun ring.

soverylucky Sat 13-Apr-13 11:20:53

I have got her a gift - a lovely book of saints. We have no family coming as no-one else is RC. Perhaps we will go out for lunch.

sweetkitty Sat 13-Apr-13 15:44:56

sovery - were not having a big "thing" all our family live an hour away and there's not many of them anyway. I'm making her a cake myself as I do that as a hobby anyway. Her dress is new but I bought it from a friend who used to have a children's clothes shop so it was at cost. I'm having caterers do a buffet for me and just having everyone back to our house.

I have 3 DDs so at least the dress will be well used.

No I'm coming round to the idea of doing it myself thanks for the offers, we're in North Lanarkshire weegiemum steel mining town wink

directoroflegacy Sat 13-Apr-13 16:26:26

I am the world's worst hairdo doer BUT after 3 years of dd doing ballet I am quite proficient!
You will need-
Practice - alot (but you have time!)
A bun doughnut - cheapest in Primark but on sale in Claires, H&M, supermarkets etc
A hair bun net
Kirby grips
Then You Tube how to do a bun
Hair spray too and not on freshly washed hair as it will be more difficult!

My dd has long, thick hair and looks fine after doing this!

YY to do it yourself! Practice loads. DD2 has slidy, poker straight, fine hair. It's a nightmare.

Do you start rolling at the ends?

Sweet kitty we're in Castlemilk. Dd1 is 13 but awesome a hair and makeup. Actually she's revised her offer : she'll do it for free if I take her for a bacon roll after!!

If you let her take a pic - she's creating a portfolio!

Och weegiemum it's too far for her at that time of day. She sounds fab though, is it done thing she wants to do as a career. Thanks for the offer though grin

I do my daughter's every week for ballet, its easy! wink

Get a bun ring, pins and practice while watching how to do it on YouTube.

Save yourself £40!

I had the same problem... our usual hairdressers DC is in DD's class at school so no hairdresser! I have found a mobile hairdresser to come and do a trial in 2 weeks then actual hair for both me and DD on the day. Total cost for trial and communion is £40!!!

My hairdresser would have charged that to curl mine and blowdry DD's once!

I need to book a cake this week too, thanks for the reminder!
