My youngest; Eloise, had her first school visit today. It was just a teensy bit heartbreaking for me to see her in her school uniform today. I'm really not looking forward to my little buddy going off to school in just over a month. It's an end of an era when your babies are all at school isn't it? Very tough on Mum and Dad but exciting nonetheless. She is growing up so quickly!
I'm trying to distract myself from the whole thing by thinking about her 5th birthday party. She's having a mermaid party (not ideal for late July and the middle of winter I know!), so the girls and I have been coming up with all sorts of ideas of how we can make the place look like an undersea palace for the event. We bought a whole load of brightly coloured card today to make fish and mermaids so that will keep us busy in the school holidays. We found this great tutorial for making tropical fish from paper plates. They look amazing.
I wanted something to put on the walls to really get the atmosphere right and had been looking at vinyl wall stickers but they are so expensive. You can probably picture me doing a little happy dance in a shop today when I found this.
