    Aww! Happy birthday to Boo.
    We don’t bother with parties here either. One of mine has their birthday at the end of August and the other at the start of September! We prefer days out of something with family.
    hahaha! I did think the girls had been to the Friends tour thing. I didn’t guess you’d edited the photo. x

    Aww, Happy birthday to Boo. We have a family party, but not a school kids one as ours are all January or chirstmas eve. I love the photo, I’d never have guessed you edited. xx

    Oh my goodness, what a busy birthday month! What a lovely photo of Boo with her friends. We’d never watched Friends before (we’re probably the only people in the world), but my husband stumbled across it the other day and laughed his way through two episodes.

    Hi Anne, now you planned that right at least the children never have school on their birthdays. But it is a shame that people don’t turn up for the parties. Are people really that busy? At least your children don’t seem to mind and they could always be like the queen and have 2 birthdays! One in term time!

    I love your photo, very clever. The girls should show their friends just what they missed out on – they need never know the truth!

      We’ve given out party invites in the past, with Star her birthday is week before they go back to school, so it seems that no-one remembered. I even collected mobile numbers one year so I could send reminders but still not many turned up..we ended up going around houses on the street to ask kids if they’d like to come and help eat all the food I’d prepared! For that reason the Little Man has only had parties with close families and friends because his birthday is right in the middle of the holiday. And poor Boo, her birthday is shortly after they break up so you’d think she’d have more turn up, but we gave up even trying and now she just invites her best friends. xx
