It is big sister's 9th birthday today. She got lots of books. I bought her the last Percy Jackson adventure, my Mum bought her a lovely box set of classics such as 'Treasure Island' and 'The Railway Children' and Hubby's Mum bought her another box set of all the Enid Blyton 'Adventure' series. As I've mentioned before, her party is on Sunday. Today we kept the celebrating quiet. After the younger two had one to bed, we cuddled up on the sofa together and watched a film with a choc-ice. I hope she won't be too tired at school tomorrow.
