Celebrate!

That's the HS:MS word of the day and here's my take on it.


Went late night shopping yesterday whilst the Dinky Diva was at Brownies. Got quite a few things, queues weren't too bad and SMO carried all the bags. There were a couple of shops not open despite having signs up for late night shopping grrrr, so I will have to venture out during daylight (please don't let it have to be a Saturday!). Only one casualty, a small box of chocs got squashed in the bag on the way home, guess we'll have to eat those ourselves!

My quandary over the children's presents has switched around this year. Usually she wants all manner of things and he isn't bothered. This year there seems to be plenty around for him (although medium sized boxes of Lego City seem to be as rare as rocking horse poo!), but I can't find things for her. She is growing out of dolls - has enough for when she is in the mood for them, I refuse to have things like 'moon sand' I don't believe them when they say there is no mess!

Her Christmas list consists of a colouring book and a new teddy - I have to say I was very proud of that, when I was her age I wanted something from every page of the Argos catalogue. So ideas needed for a 7-8 year old girl, not too messy, trashy, tarty or too practical! (and she isn't in to music or video games).

Great take on the word Kate. Sorry no help with the girly present thing. Only got 2 boys here and their lists are about as long as Dinky Diva's - not much help are they!

Great shot for today, Kate! Very party-ish indeed. :)

Does the Diva like High School
Musical? If she does, how about a HSM dance mat from Argos? We've got one for one of our DGD's. Other than that, no idea - sorry. :(

Have you seen the Klutz books? I have bought so many for presents for girls of every age- our current favourite is the lettering one. It's kept Sophie quiet for hours ....
Godd take on celebration too!

Great photo Kate. I only have a 14 year old boy - so I don't know how much I can contribute but when I was little (8) I asked for a Calligraphy set. Maybe you could get her something like an origami kit or one of those friendship bracelet kits??!! Crafts are always fun!
Good Luck!

Sorry no inspiration for an 8 year old girl! What about a handbag? My nieces love grown up presents as they call them!
