Endeavouring to do better next year didn't work, so I decided to just have unbirthday parties. Joss changed her mind a bit but then decided to have one friend over and go to the movies, hang around downtown and then have a sleepover. She did that on Friday. Toby, however, wanted to go to LaserZone. Finding a free weekend amongst all the cycling, gigs, markets etc. was very difficult, and I don't think I realised that the weekend I chose was in the holidays on the long weekend, but we were thrilled that only a few of his friends were away and couldn't come. One girl even raced back from the south coast so she wouldn't miss out.

I made this chocolate cake with much chocolate on it.
The kids were really delightful, an even mix of boys and girls. Outsourcing parties can be very expensive but this was was worth every cent. I am now organising Bethany's, which is going to be at home........ am I going to regret it?
