Thank god its Monday

It has been a busy week let me tell you! Monday and Tuesday I spent cleaning the house top to bottom. I planned on doing the garden too but the lawnmower refuses to start. I think it's gone to mower heaven lads!

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. 


  1. Wow that looks amazing! Can't believe that one person could do all of that! I'd have loved a party like that at any age!!

    1. Me too! The most excitement I can remember from my parties was getting ice-cream with my cake!

  2. Excellent work, Sarah, it looks FABulous :D

  3. Wow! All the invitations & decorations look amazing! :)

  4. Those are impressive. The best ones are the ones where the shape of the hand or the skin texture works for the animal (like the elephant and giraffe). The painting of a cat on the hand seems a bit pointless.

  5. What a fantastic job you did with the party, so cute!
