Wednesday and Thursday I spent helping Shane's sister to plan her sons birthday party. He was turning three and the theme was Pirates and Princesses. He also has a little sister so we had to plan our shopping trips around nap and feeding times. This meant very early shopping trips and it took us two days to buy everything we needed. I spent the nights making some pirate decorations and I have to say I had lots of fun doing it. Anything to keep me busy is good I say!
The party was a brilliant fun. The pirates and princesses had their faces painted, their was a puppet show, animal balloons, a treasure chest pinata. I hung the decorations from the trees in the back garden and blew up 30 balloons and had them all over the house. Thank god it was sunny on Friday. I was getting worried after the rain pour on Wednesday and Thursday. The birthday boy had a fantastic day and ate at least six pirate buns!
On Saturday and Sunday I was in Blanchardstown shopping centre. They where having an Ultimate fan weekend involving football penalty shootout, face painting, balloons and much more. I was working with another girl doing football crafts with children aged 1 and a half to 11. It was great fun the parents where great sports. Others not so much. A few of them took advantage of the free craft time to abandon their children with me. I couldn't believe it. One mother left her two children there for an hour unsupervised. I had my eyes on them like a hawk!
Thank god its Monday and its a bank holiday too. YAY! Myself and Shane do not plan on leaving the house today. Feet up, kettle on.
