I have no idea why I try and theme Fysh’s parties every year, no matter how good my intentions are I just never get the décor and shit right. This year he wanted a Harry Potter party and I had it all planned out, had the sweets sorted (thanks mom) had things to make wands and all the cute pompoms, cutouts and whatnot… but last minute I realized I had to work the Friday and didn’t have the day off as originally thought so there went that plot.
Despite the haphazard throw together of a party – thank you to mom, ouma, Hitler, @rey3004 and Pooky who all contributed to eats and drinks and helped make Fysh’s party possible. To my twitter/ bloggy friends @lauren_rsa, Vanessa, @eleanorfaddell, Kate and @tash_wen who brought their kidlets, to the friends without kids Bear, Bubbles, Barbie, Jill, the Zas Sanz sisters, Lindy and Fysh’s aunty Panda who showed up anyway to celebrate me surviving another year… THANKS!
And yes we had some last minute cancellations and a few no shows but hell, it was an awesome day and Fysh had a ball, which to me is what counts most! That’s our 4th party under the belt now… damn.
I ask Fysh what the best part of his day was: he said that dad came to fetch him – dad is his old nannies husband. They came to bring him a little present and wish him a happy birthday and seeing them warmed my heart so much. They were such a huge part of his life for the first 3 years and them showing up despite him not being there anymore really touched my heart. Then they asked if they could take him with them for the rest of the day and from what I can deduce he went to spur and got spoiled rotten.
So even though this party stressed me out six love I’m glad we had it, just another day showing how many people him and I have who really care about us x
