The wedding party

My older brother got married a little while ago and then this weeked he and his wife threw a great party for friends and family to celebrate with them. It was a lovely weekend as most weekends in Cornwall seem to be and my three children had a fantastic time. I had no idea my soon to be 5 year old had such great dance moves! She now of course would like a disco party just like uncle Dave and Auntie Zoe had for her birthday, she would like it to run from about 8pm to midnight, unfortunatly I don't think this will be a wish that gets granted but I couldn't resist sharing her dance moves with you!

The Princess in the woods

We went for a lovely family walk today to bluebell woods in Ashridge and on our way there we drove past the Ashridge College which looks very like a castle. The girls asked if a princess lived in the castles and I on true make believe mode said "yes of course" so when we got to the woods and Grace shouted out "Mummy there is the Princess" you can imagine my surprise when sure enough we saw what could to the eyes of a 4 year old and a 3 year old very well have been a Princess. As the said Princess then approached the girls became very shy and excited especially when the Princess actually said hello!
So for those who are reading this who are wondering what the Princess looked like I have attached some photos to help solve the mystery.

The bunk beds arrived

Well after a rather long wait the bunk beds arrived! Grace has been counting the sleeps till the arrival and was incredibly excited to get home from school today to test them out.
I of course just had to put 2 new sets of Isla b baby bed linen on them to finish the look!

The party season approaches our house

With a string of parties both to attend and to plan for my 3 children it can get a little dull trawling the high street to find something worthy of the Birthday child. I never know what they already have or sometimes even like and can not feel anything other than guilt when I do cave in and buy plastic fantastic! So when Jo Esson at Stealing Candy said she has some new gifts for children amongst her new range I was very excited. I even bought a little girls present well in advance of her party as I couldn't resist her new garden sets! (don't want to share a picture of that one in case her mummy gets a sneak peak that spoils the surprise)
I bought for this weekends 5 year olds disco party a lovely set of writing paper and then personalised it by making her a little bag with her name on it and a pretty face cloth to help clean up all the cake later today! Making part of a gift of your own is great way to keep costs down and still end up with something scummy.
