Greetings Blog Fans. Short and sweet this week. No grand adventure to report as the weekend was dedicated to Alex's party. He turns 11 next week and we celebrated by having a party and sleepover on Saturday. As you can tell from above, a good time was had by all.
Football kit and cake (and, er, dirty laundry room) before the party.
Both Kuk and I commented how well the party went even with a mixture of neighborhood/school friends. Last year was fine, but this year seemed better (and more relaxed for us). His school friends were different this year (recall, new school) but perhaps it was simply another year of maturity.

After the party, the neighborhood boys (five now as one couldn't come to the party) joined Alex for a sleepover. This is the next morning and as usual they all (save one) have their iPods out and are playing away.
I was pleasantly surprised at how well they did. They all got along fine, listened reasonably well and didn't break anything! Well done, lads! I imagine they crashed around 11 and got up around 6 (ugh, but expected). No issues whatsoever.
I treated them to my usual special breakfast of crepes ("pancakes" in UK-speak) with nutella, strawberries, bananas and whipped cream. They were impressed and Alex was proud so that was a winner too.
Meal of the (Last) Week
Have a good week everyone.
