I decided to have a bit of fun today as the girls were coming over for supper and I wanted to make it special for them. Hope is nearly 9 and Grace just 7. Well, we all need a bit of pampering at times don't we? First job was to make an invitation and ask them to dress for the oocasion
next job was to make a sign for the door
then it was time to do the menu. A choice of starter, then pigs in blankets and cheesy jacket potatoes....mmmm...
When my own children were small, I used to make little sponge puddings in glass dishes with jam at the bottom, so they were on the menu too, and fruit to follow
The table was set, the candles lit, and the food nearly all prepared.
When the girls arrived looking AB FAB they were knocked out. Both of them were so thrilled it was worth the effort!
After dinner, the girls went into the lounge and rehearsed a dance for us to go and watch. A perfect ending.....
Now what I really must do is get on with designing new cards but my throat is burning and my voice rapidly getting croakier and croakier. Oh dear.....hot honey, lemon and whiskey I think!
