Bits and pieces

 I had to cancel the bouncy castle last night, the weather forecast was very bad. Mr.Bouncy Castle wanted 100 euro up front whatever the weather. So, I spent an hour and a half looking for a children’s entertainer at short notice. Not easy. In the end, I’ve decided not to get one. We’re going to pack three hours of fun on our own! At no great expense.

 Bossy (11 yr old) is face-painting, or rather a Princess make-up sort of thing. Pencil (9 yr old) is doing her arts and crafts thing. I’ll organise the party games and each time the sun attempts to come out, we’ll go into the back garden for a disco-alfresco!

~It didn’t rain after all!~

Quick Check for Alzheimer’s

The following simple test was developed as a mental age assessment by
Harvard University – School of Psychiatry.
Take your time…see if you can read each line aloud without a mistake.
The average person over the age of 40 cannot do it!

1. This is this cat.
2. This is is cat.
3. This is how cat.
4. This is to cat.
5. This is keep cat.
6. This is an cat.
7. This is old cat.
8. This is fart cat.
9. This is busy cat.
10. This is for cat.
11. This is forty cat.
12. This is seconds cat.

Now go back and read the third word in each line from the top down and
betcha’ you cannot resist passing it on.

    Yipee, I passed the test!

    Your party sounds like it will be a great success. I had a bouncy castle once and bad weather was forcast and the man rang asking did I still want it which I thought was very good. I had to take it as I couldn’t cancel 20 children on the day, yes it rained, yes they all got wet and five years later they still all remember it!

    Kids are usually pretty good at coming up with their own entertainment when they have to. What a sweet photo – all those happy faces. It so reminds me of the birthday parties we had for our girls when they were young.

    I cannot believe you have never seen Gone With The Wind. Oh my, that’s hard to believe.

    The baby is beautiful. What a lovely post.
