So, dc are calmed and happy smile

Now I have a gllass of wine and am full of party food leftovers. SO all is well.

I am very chuff, dd had an ace time and other children loved it and adults were happily stuffed with food.

I am in love (still obv) with dh who made a pirate ship in the garden, with sails and flag and the playhouse slide whizzing into it out of cardboard boxes

Quite right! it was tea, party from 3 til erm sometime and went over teatime, so who am I but to provide yummy things for adults.

Oh I am chuff chuffity chuffed, I overheard so many adults saying yum in variously ways. Ahhhhh.

And I said about boat right? And I did a treasure trail round house, decked out dc room with carefully positioned duvet cover aso you had to crawl in to find 'message in recently emptied wine bottle'.

Oh and it didn't RAIN!!!!

Thank you for indulging me Avena grin I don't brag much (esp on MN) so it is particularly appreciated that you post back. I realise it is not necessarily interesting to anyone. someone who wasn't there.

avenanap Sat 13-Sep-08 23:27:11

I think it's interesting. It sounds like you did a fantastic job. ds has been to some crap parties in soft play centres so it's giving me ideas for his birthday. I suppose he'd like to go lazer thingy though. sad

S1ur Sat 13-Sep-08 23:34:22

Oh yes I am milking it for all it is worth while they want this sort of thing. I fully realise there will probably come a point where they want me to drop them at cinema and sod off.

avenanap Sat 13-Sep-08 23:38:43

sad I could join in with paint balling or cimbing wall. I don't fancy lazer thingy though.

What are you planning next? Why are we chatting on 2 threads?

S1ur Sat 13-Sep-08 23:43:25

I'd best whipped these pics off in am sometime since two of the children aren't mijne!

My ones are the ones wearing the skulls and crossbones black costumes.

avenanap Sat 13-Sep-08 23:43:54

WOW! That cake's a work of art! It was a shame to chop it up.

Frizbe Sat 13-Sep-08 23:46:39

grin that pirate ship looks fab and the cake wow! glad you had a great time.

S1ur Sat 13-Sep-08 23:48:59

Chopping it was hilarious, not made for chopping. But I gave each dc chance to nab goodies before slicing up and then basically dismantled it for party bags.

Cept it was treasure chest not bags but yswim.

I am embarassed by my bragging I apologise.



It was good though

<doh can't stop myself grin>

BoysAreLikeDogs Sat 13-Sep-08 23:49:16

Oh you clever thing

avenanap Sat 13-Sep-08 23:52:44

Ohh, keep on bragging. You really did a fantastic job. You are allowed to brag. Your kids will go to school on Monday and their friends will be talking all about the party.
