We started off with "Don't eat Tommy's smartie" which worked brilliantly, we really hammed it up with the shouting and the suspense. Then we did granny's keys, musical statues, musical bumps, pass the parcel. The rain stayed away so DP took them out to the field for a game of frisbee (aerobie pro, the only frisbee worth buying btw) whilst I prepared the tea. Fab tea, cake and candles, outside on the bikes and go-kart and then the Parents started arriving to collect and yes, it did all end a bit too soon!
It really was just splendid. Thank you all so much for your last-minute support.
