Not much action here on the blog this week. It is birthday week. Whenever there is a birthday in this household, I spend a lot of time in the days preceeding getting ready for the day to make it as special as possible. Yesterday was J Boy’s 6th birthday. On Saturday it will be his party. All efforts this week see-saw between these events and keeping the family alive and fed in the meantime.
Hopefully next week I can share the particulars about the party. He’s into spies right now, so it will be Top Secret 006 party.
Yesterday he had a wonderful day. Of course the theme of most presents were all forms of intelligence gathering and covert operatives. He was totally thrilled.

The cousins came over for afternoon tea.
They played hard with the new toys for several hours.

The cousins went home, Grandmother’s came and bestowed gifts and an aunty and Grandma stayed for dinner.

The menu of course was chosen by the birthday boy. Spaghetti Bolognaise, Soft Drink and Ice-Cream. I love doing a child’s dinner party. So easy! I did cook an awesome bolognaise, deciding for the special occassion I wouldn’t pour it out of a jar. Four hours in the oven. Delicious.
So, what happens around your parts when there’s a birthday? Do you spend lots of time preparing?
