I heart Pizza Hut!

To hold a party for 16 very noisy and enthusiastic 6 to 8 year olds, get them all to make their own lunch, eat a bit of salad and then a lot of ice cream, (OK that bit was easy), all without me having to prepare a thing; worth. every. penny.

The quick trip at the end by a poor Pizza Hut chap to Sainsbury, to get a birthday cake (they had not noticed we had ordered one!), was more amusing than annoying, (but then we didn't have to pay for it - bonus). 

No clearing up, no washing up, and considering the amount eaten, no throwing up.  A great party.


Dear son's birthday, even having to share the party with his sisters, has been declared another 'best one ever'.  The surprise Nintendo 3DS went down as well as the Leap Pads last weekend; so now they are all tech'ed up, bring on the quiet times, and fingers crossed, lots of sewing time for mummy!

Tomorrow, I can seriously start thinking about Christmas... just wait for the screams! x

  9. No throwing up while they were with you....are you sure it didn't all 'come up' later!?? There's lots to be said for parties at those fast food places..generally more fun for the kidlets and less stress for M & D!!

  11. ARGH! Oh no, you said wait for the screams, sorry ;o) Glad you had fun! I remember asking for McDonalds for dinner for my 8th birthday (I never actually got parties) and my dad took me, looked pained the entire time, and bought me my burger (while avoiding eating any himself lol).

  21. A kids party can't be a true success unless some kid vomits up ice cream...Oh and DS's have volume control. I point it out because the jingles on half the games will make you want to throw it out the window after about 10 mintues ;-)
