Fairy Eithne in the snow

I went to a children's birthday party today.

At the last minute I decided to dress up as a fairy. Luckily the shops are entirely full of gold sparkly things at the moment, so I was a purple and gold fairy.

So then it started to snow. It's so beautiful, floating past my balcony. I'm all jumping up and down, trying to get some other people enthused about snow, but a noticeable lack of response from my flatmates.

Then of course I realise that Fairy twinkletoes is not exactly the best dressing option for going out in the snow. Fairy t. plus large coat, scarf and woolly hat didn't cut quite the same dash...

So the party actually turned out quite fun. There were nine children ranging in age from 2 - about 8, with English, Dutch, Swedish and Spanish. I even managed to communicate in Swedish a little bit. We played pin the nose on the witch (one small child down, with a pin in the foot), musical statues and musical bums (various injuries from throwing themselves on the ground too hard), hot potato (I SAID don't throw the ball... oh dear).

Nobody was seriously hurt, and all had to be dragged away kicking and screaming, so I think a good time was had by all.
