We had Judith (and family), Laura Jane, Nicky (and family), Terri (and family), Trudi and Jennie.
They came from far and wide. Food was made and brought, as well chairs, toys and crafts. And it didn't rain all day! It wasn't exactly warm out, but it was dry. These days that counts as a fantastic success.
And all our children mingled, played, got to know each other and got along. Best of all Judith's daughter, Shannon, gave all the other's a lesson on how to make mini models with Fimo polymer clay and that was an absolute raving crowd pleaser.
And Judith brought a selection of fabric we could buy. I ask you, could anything else have made the day just perfect?! All this fun and food, and fabric too?!!
And just in case the children were having too much fun, some others got in on the act.
It was one of the best days I have had in ages. Relaxed and happy, full of laughter, chatter and joy. Thank you to all who came. I just hope that the people who wanted to come today, but couldn't, can make it the next time round. Whenever that may be - but I certainly do hope there is a next time.
Looks like you had a fantastic day. In the end he arrived earlier than I would have got on the earliest train to Banbury. Not a single thing - apart from him arriving, worked out like it should have today. I hope there is a next time!ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness that looks just fantastic. I'm so glad you lovely ladies had a fantastic day! Wish I could have joined in too!ReplyDelete
