It was going so well. I had been so strong.
Lydia can be a very persuasive little girl when she tries, but I really meant it when I said that she was not having a birthday party this year. NO! Definitely not!
Then I caved a little and said she could invite just 3...only 3...a maximum of 3...friends over for a swim, because her birthday falls on a public holiday this year. Then my best friend, Mum of Lydia's best friend, said she would be able to pop in on her birthday...an unexpected development. So the number of party-goers became greater than 10...a party if ever there was one :)
And then there was this...
Who can resist a red polkadot cupcake stand? Cupcakes. Polkadots. Hello? I even have the matching red cupcake cases in my cupboard already :) and my girl simply adores polkadots.
So all of a sudden the party planning is under way. And the baking has started. And the party cake has been decided upon. And we are making up party bags.
And the mother of the birthday girl is still wondering what happened to NO!
Have a great weekend...I had better get back to my kitchen!
