Happy Birthday............

Toby  - 10 today - where have those last 10 years gone!


Hope everyone's well?  I've just got back from the school run and I'm going to catch my breath with a cup of coffee before getting on with the day.


Toby along with Jack and 4 of Toby's friends went bowling, then to Pizza Hut on Saturday.  An experience I never want to repeat anytime soon.  There wasn't any bad behaviour or attitude and they were all polite, but........they were absolutely hyper, and wouldn't leave each other alone!  I've never seen a group of boys be so physical.  It was like watching monkey's at a zoo!!  Hubby at one point said I was very calm, I did explain later that day that I was a simmering fire which could have ignited.....


Pizza Hut was interesting - we had a poor childless couple sat next to us who did look in on horror at how loud they were and of course everything was bought down to a toilet humour level.  Thank goodness they went as soon as they had had their fill of 'E' numbers at the ice-cream machine............Nevertheless they all enjoyed themselves.


As soon as I got home I buried my head in some sewing - instant therapy!  and my industriousness led to a bolster cushion - (maybe I should entertain 4 10yr olds more often if I get results like this!).


It was really enjoyable to do, albeit quite difficult.  As I didn't have a bolster cushion pad the size they suggested in the instructions, I had to calculate the amount of fabric to use based on the pad I had.  I've bought another pad, slightly bigger so this time round it might be a little easier!  What did I say last week, about being cushioned out?!


Have a good day.

Happy birthday to your little boy! Your new bolster cushion is really pretty. And it looks so perfect with the knit blanket.

Been there, done that. Boys parties are a bit full on when they get bigger aren't they.
Cushion is lovely!

Happy Birthday to your little boy. Ah yes birthday celebrations for your kids. Can be a tad tiring!

But what a lovely cushion though. Very pretty and lovely shape too.

I agree you should entertain small children at the pizza parlor more often, if this is a sample of what happens next! Off to explore your Blog. Beautiful. Hugs, Diane

Love the cushion, very pretty fabrics. I've been meaning to do a bolster for a while but as usual the list is a long one.

Happy Birthday to your young man!

Oh, kids parties! I remember the first one I ever did for my son when he was two. The next day I told husband it felt as though someone had stolen all my bones. Tired isn't the word, so well done for surviving. xx

Congratulations on surviving bowling and pizza hut. I have been there, done that (only a few months ago) and i know what you mean about the boys not being naughty but simply hyper!!

At least you got a lovely cushion out of the experience!
