Thanks for making me laugh this week with your suggestions of games to play at my up and coming birthday bash. I think Lulu was a little surprised to see a somewhat sultry photo of herself under the heading ‘know any good party games?’!! And somewhat disappointingly we didn’t get the chance for me to find out whether she did or not when we worked together on Thursday.
Of course I’m not the only one with a ’significant’ birthday coming up – Kathy and Ann Dawson have also reached the same milestone as myself – but we all take comfort from the fact that the ever youthful Julia and almost childlike Debbie Greenwood, have also ‘been there and done that’…
I do have another party to go to soon which is a themed fancy dress party. The theme… Heroes and Villains. So what to wear..? I’ve toyed with Spongebob Square pants – well the idea of dressing as him – but Colin thought that was ridiculous and said he thought I’d be better as Wonderwoman or Catwoman… you sense a theme???
I've been looking online for outfits and realise I'm indeed getting old! I don’t remember Wonderwoman looking anything like that in the series! And Spiderwoman – is there such a person? I think I may need your help on this one to decide. Will see what I can get my hands on and then take photos…
Actually I’ve been a little creative this last week and have done something I’ve never done before. In truth it’s something I’ve managed to avoid up until now as I doubted my ability to rise to the challenge, but I am delighted to say that after a few botched attempts and a bad case of Alan Key Arm, I did it!
From cardboard box to dining room table – I have conquered the world of flatpack furniture! I actually made four chairs as well, although as my photo shows, they were a tad trickier than I thought they would be… the instructions weren’t written but consisted of little drawings with numbers corresponding to the different pieces in the box.
There was also a recommended time for assembly… 20 minutes per chair they suggested. As you can see the first took considerably longer (top photo left), but by the time I was on the third chair (bottom photo left) I’d got it down to 10 minutes! Result!
How are you when it comes to being creative?? Do let me know.
Well, must fly as muffins in the oven and food shopping waiting to be unpacked! Have a great week, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Love Ali xx
