I'm in a rush, on a schedule.
I have a list of things to do as long as my arm.
Tomorrow is P-Day (like D-Day only it's a Party not a War).
There's no time to blog, really there's not.
It's 9.11am and already I have baked a double batch of cupcakes.
A giant chocolate cake is sitting on the bench waiting to be turned into a map of Neverland.
Miss Fab must be picked up from her friends in Epsom where she spent the night and taxi'ed to another friend in Te Atatu to help make sushi/play with her baby.
Last night I constructed a teepee... and realised that I need more fabric. It's a BIG teepee.
So on the way to pick up Miss Fab I'll swoop by Geoffs Emporium and hopefully find the roll of that awesome $2 a metre suedey stuff.
Scrag is refusing to get dressed... again. He spent all day in his PJ's yesterday.
The sun is shining. And the forecast is for more sun.
This is a good thing. Our party is completely reliant on good weather.
The Titanic DVD arrived in the post yesterday. Phew.
Hard to have a 100 Year Anniversary Titanic Night without the movie.
Did you know you can't buy it in NZ at the moment?
I found a copy on TradeMe, but you can't get it in the shops.
So I am totally grateful it arrived on time.
I think we'll watch it tonight, dressed in our First Class finery. I need to take a breather from party prep.
My Titanic-obsessed son said to me the other day, Mum if we were on the Titanic, we would be second class aye?
Second class citizens? Us?
No way, I said, We would totally be First Class.
He smiled at that. (There's no way I want him thinking of himself as Second Class. Even if we actually would have been)
So today I am loving the sunshine, things crossed off my to-do list, friends who make sushi, and other friends who send sweet treats in the Post all the way from London. (Nikki, you are the coolest).
I'm also loving the Edmonds book and its easy never-fail recipes, buttercream icing, birthday parties and birthday boys. Big boys who love history and little girls who love babies.
Now I've really got to run, cos I am so out of time it's not funny. See you on the other side of tomorrow...
