Are you a list maker?
I rely on my lists.
I write them and rewrite them and check them off as I go.
These are my lists for yesterday.
You see, I had 2 1/2 hours to shop cook and pull off a party for 7 seven year olds in the park.
Usually my list and diary system works well.
Not this time.
You see, I merrily worked Mon, Tues and Wed thinking I had all day Thurs to prepare for Master B's belated birthday party at the park.
Wednesday night I found the note in his school bag reminding me I had agreed to help out with Christmas activities ALL MORNING!
Anyway, some ultra fast baking was done. The disastrous blooming cake would not set and I had to cool the cookies Granny style on the front porch as I stood over them shooing the flies.
The barely cooled cookies, were bagged and tagged.
Icing slopped on the still warm cake. Smarties sliding everywhere.
After all the rush and stress.
The kids had a great time.
They still ate the cake and all the food and didn't care a jot about sliding smarties.
The highlight was catching locusts in butterfly nets and putting them into an insect home.
Miss B demonstrating net and collection of locusts.
Everyone went home having eaten far too much sugar and exhausted from playing cricket
and chasing bugs.
And most importantly Master B. had a lovely time with his mates.
Just needed to add my brag.
After all this, my team
won our squash and we are through to the semi finals!
Anyone know a good masseuse?
