I was going to write up a post about ThingOne's sixth birthday party on Saturday. I was going to go into some detail on the preparation, the effort we went to, the face painting, Anne creating a cake which would bring ThingOne a little joy, my buying props and learning magic tricks mixed with some whizzy chemical reactions. Fortunately though ThingOne received a journal as a gift, and was keen to write about her party in the first entry, so I'll just recreate that entry here and you can get the skinny on the party from her...
Saturday 14th January
I had a birthday party. Daddy did a magic show. It was okay. I knew some of the tricks.
Nice for her to have that day saved for posterity.
