Tom is getting ready for his party

I admit I hate the whole idea of kids birthday parties. I am all for cakes and singing, decorations or whatever, but the thought of organising and running a party is terrifying. Hence the fact that Toms first three or four birthdays consisted of family BBQ's and gathering friends in the park with cakes. But with a lack of BBQ's and parks around here apparantly we are having a party again. The not liking parties thing does not help with thinking months in advance when in a country with shops that actually sell partyware, so now I have to come up with some ideas while here. Anyone that knows him well will know he wanted a 'soldier party', the thought 'you have got to be kidding, I can not possibly do one of those in Africa' has fortunately been followed by an agreement with Nanny that we will have a soldier party when we reach the UK. Anyway, we have made a start, well all I actually did was to pick up some free envelope/bag type things from the ship shop and Tom has turned them into party bags. Roll on June 5th at 3pm when it will all be over!!
