Today I attended a first birthday party.
It was at a lovely park and I made a few friends who are under the age of two.
I was hoping for pass the parcel, but I was sadly disappointed. What I had thought was the parcel for that game turned out to be a badly wrapped present for the birthday girl (and by badly wrapped, I mean in was wrapped in newspaper). I wish I had taken a picture of the gift I chose before I gave it. I found the most adorable lift the flap book in Japanese, and even though I didn’t know exactly what the words said the gist was pretty clear.
There were two things I enjoyed most today.
The first was fairy bread, that perennial party favourite.
I don’t k ow why I don’t eat it all the time. I think it’s because it has to be a single slice of bread, it can’t be a sandwich, and so that makes it hard to transport to work for lunch. But it’s just so tasty. All you need is super fresh bread.
The other thing I enjoyed, that I had forgotten that I liked, was bubbles. Someone had brought along a few bubble blowing kits for the kids to play with. And because it was so windy you really didn’t have to do anything except hold the wand up in the air.
I also got mail for the first time in nine days – on a Saturday! And one of the things was my prize from Whimsy Milieu.
Coming up on my next blog: I need a Japan fix so I’m heading to Daiso, and I’m going to buy some hundreds and thousands.
