Hi all,
Just a silly question really, I have been looking after twin girl/boy since april (7 hrs a week) they are great kids and turn 9yrs on friday.
Just wondering if I should just get them a card or a little bit of something and if so I am stuck what to get them all i can think of is choccies but thats not promoting healthy eating iykwim,
Any ideas?

Hi puppy, I usually throw a party for the mindees birthday with balloons and we make a cake, nothing too fancy! You could have fruit smoothies and veg dips as well as the cake, to balance it out!

Have fun!

A book token?
Or a book?
A pocket money toy?

Lovely idea btw I always do too

Katymac, I love the name you call your business 'walnut corner', I was thinking of calling mine cherry tree corner as i also live on a corner with a cherrytree, what do you think? would you mind me copying ( Although I do live in W.yorks)

Thankyou for some reason I felt i needed to ask lol, it is a nice name, i was thinking on the line of busy bees but I fancied something different and when i saw yours it just seemed to click in my head
Now i need to look at changing my name to that
