DD (aged 3) had a friend to come and play after nursery yesterday so I had spent a HUGE amount of time trying to make the place look respectable for the little girl's gran (Is it just me who does that?) and the plan was that the girls would get to play out on the trampoline and tire themselves out in the process. UNFORTUNATELY, the great British weather decided to step in and the torrential rain meant that they couldn't even manage one bounce for fear of getting webbed feet :o)
Plan B ...... oh heck why hadn't I planned a Plan B???? In the end we had a baking session and they made chocolate fairy cakes with glace icing and sprinkles on top and a big tray of shortbread. I never realised how much mess two giggling pre-schoolers could make ................. but BOY did they have fun! By the time gran came to pick our visitor up they were both COVERED in sticky icing and cake mix where they had been licking the bowl :o) Makes you wonder why I bothered tidying in the first place!
Once normality had been resumed (ie once the kids had eaten tea and were engrossed in a Dr Who episode), I set to work on finishing a card for my friend's sister who had her first baby yesterday (*Congratulations Cathryn*) and ended up almost as sticky as the girls had been! By then end of it my fingers were covered in Sky Blue and Cyan Promarker and PVA glue *BLEURGH* ----- The resulting card is a double decorated gatefold A5 creation using a Robo'd pram template from UKScrappers. I hope you like it.
