Partied Out


Pink candy striped party bags were filled with goodies on Saturday. Only a few calm moments before Eldest Bun's 9th birthday party got into full swing and then it went by in a blur with Mr Bun and I racing around entertaining twelve girls. Such a blur that these are the only photos I managed to take. I'm afraid you'll have to believe me when I say the pink iced buns and marshmallows covered in chocolate and 100's and 1,000's looked and were delicious. The sun shone and they partied in full swing outside.



Then there was the brownie pile cake. Always a good idea when you really don't feel inspired for making another birthday cake and hey, as it's a brownie they're already cut up for wrapping and popping into party bags.

I can't believe how truly exhausted I've been this week. Once the party gifts were opened I laid back and thought - oh just for a moment - as I shut my eyes and slept for a full half hour. Only elderly ladies (and now you can add crumpled mummies to the list) do that in the afternoon. Quite a good ruse really though as I woke to a clean home and Bun's happily playing. Bliss. Must have twelve girls round more often.

  1. Oh, what a sweet party it must have been. My oldest's 11th is in October, so I'd better get to planning. She wants to plan most of the activities, so should be a breeze. :)

  2. I'm sure they had a fab time, the candy striped party bags were lovely. I hope you were lucky with the weather, it seems to have mainly been a sunny weekend, hooray!
    By the way, I'm with you on the tea, can't stand the stuff, coffee either. Teacups with me are for hot choc or the odd herbal tea only. Doesn't stop me making or collecting tea cosies though!

  9. I'm an occassionally snoozing afternoon crumpled mummy too! Also rather good at forgetting to snap away at the camera during birthdays on account of keeping the lemonade glasses topped up and chubby little chocolate-y fingers well and truly wiped!!!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
