How many birthday parties?

Now that Madame has started school, I’m finding that the number of Birthday invitations is rapidly increasing.

According to my calculations, with 60 children in Reception there is a likelihood that she could have a party a week to go to!   That’s a lot of presents, cards and gift wrap.

Realistically, how many parties do your kids go to in a year?

I have to run out this morning and get a present for a 6 year old boy which I’ll find challenging.  I’m okay with buying presents for girls the same age as Madame, but when it comes to boys I’m a bit clueless.  I’m thinking of some kind of construction kit.

Luckily I have a selection of cards and wrapping paper at home courtesy of Orchard Cards, who also have loads of gorgeous Christmas Cards, wrapping paper and Late Advent Calendars.  They have also kindly offered a £25 worth of Orchard Cards products to one of my lucky readers.  Simply enter using the Rafflecopter form below.

Last card I bought was a congratulations card for my mum, for getting a job after five years of illness as her disability money has been stopped, despite the fact she's partially disabled! So now she's 62 and has a job in Tescos. Its a bitter-sweet memory really! On one hand I am so proud of her, on the other, I can't help but think after being a nurse allher life its a bit sad she has to spend her later years doing this! But thats life I guess!

It was a get well card for my elderly Mum. I'm hoping she'll be out of hospital this week after a 2 week stay.
