I just can't get it together this morning, have accidentally invited 19 children to Ol's fifth birthday party tomorrow. Think it was to over compensate for him not yet starting school so invited my friends and their children, and some of his friends from nursery who I don't know. Now having grubby house, no food made, monster cake to invent, cakes to play, children to entertain, adults to squeeze in, and what to do with Daisy Dog dilemma.
Had a brainwave of game, well read it in a book, to fill little milk cartons with plaster of paris, drop small plastic monster toys in, harden, and then let children be archaeologists and free monsters with some basic tools. Even collected milk cartons, but did not buy plaster of paris. Then started to worry they would attack each other with basic tools, and walk plaster in to only bit of carpet we had, dog would eat it, oh and it would be all bad.
Harriet has come up with a new plan though, freezing water, apparently this was part of a school science lesson she once did, children had to work out the quickest way to get toys out. So now all I have to do is sort out the freezer, find some toys, cut tops of cartons, um, clean them and well, it should work.
Trouble is I've become a little obsessed with Thai green curry, and can only think about next time I can have it, and if there is an alternative to coconut cream, that is the same but lower in fat. We had it for tea again last night, and really fancy it again tonight, oh and as party food.
Last party we hosted, Jem's for some reason all food was brown and beige and hence did not look very exciting. Am determined not to make that same mistake again, but to make food healthy and deletable looking. Must buy colourful fruit. Do have smarties biscuits so that is all good.
Also had fantastic idea of making lemonade ice lollies and freezing sweets in them, but simply have not got 20 lolly holders, or room in freezer, or in fact any lemonade, so am amazing mother in head only.
Reality will be a couple of marmite sandwiches and some bread sticks. Looking forward to it?
