Beautiful Birthday Girl

Yep, today was my baby's birthday...well, I say my baby, she was 10!!
And here's a pic of her gorgeousness, taken this afternoon when she got in from school. For a girl who used to make out she had no friends, it was a joy to see all her friends (including the boys)wishing her happy birthday in the playground this morning.On Saturday we have four of her friends here for pizza.I'm tempted to arrange something crafty for them to do, but I have a feeling they'll be more interested in watching the X Factor! As for presents, Em was chuffed to bits with the few bits we gave her this morning (books that she was 'desperate' for,DVD, bracelet) and declared it the best birthday ever *gulp*.But she was overjoyed when we gave her a little extra something this afternoon.This being a little digital camera that she can also record on with sound.Holly was placated with a Charlie & Lola book about wobbly teeth!
Tomorrow morning we have the Harvest Festival assembly at school.Em actually has a speaking part (no mean feat in a full school assembly!) and Holly's class will be singing Conkers and a fab song about the giant Turnip! I will be there armed with the video camera as Geoff will be working.
I think the rest of the day will be spent tidying before Saturdays visitors and doing my Pencil Lines Lo for this week.I have a serious urge to stash shop...but I must resist! Instead I will start writing myself a little list of what I 'need' when I have the funds!
