Our little man is 5

Well, how did that happen?

Nicholas was 5 last week and although has been a year coming, it kind of hit me that my little boy is growing up...

Having a birthday right after Christmas is a real downer, but Nicholas still managed to come up with a "wish list" top of it being a double ended light sabre!

After a good day at school, things didn't quite go to plan on his actual birthday, but I ended up taking all 3 kids along with Mum over to Little Monsters for an impromptu play/tea - complete with a Spiderman cake!

Then on the Saturday, 30 odd kids joined him at St Lawrence Church hall for a few hours of fun and magic with Terry the Magician!

Terry had them all running around, playing loads of games and getting into the spirit of Nicholas' birthday party...

They then all had loads of E numbers, sugar, crisps, biscuits, chocolate and any other "party food" I could come up with before singing "Happy Birthday" to the special boy..

The best bit of the party then followed - the 45 minute magic show, which had all the kids in hysterics and kept them mesmorised for the entire time. He was brilliant and I can highly recommend him!!!

When it was all over, the girls all left with huge pink fairy wings and the boys went home with sharp swords and shields - fabby for stabbing a sibling with apparently...

HUGE thanks to Mum for helping me decorate, set up the hall and being on cake duty and to Tara, Michelle, Helen and Jo for assisting with the food and whatever else they could!

Nicholas told me at bedtime that he'd had a brilliant day. That's what it's all about and makes it all worthwhile...
