Happy Birthday Daddy! My husband turned 44 today. His birthday request was that we didn’t buy birthday cards and that he wanted us all to put into a contribution to pay for a years registration of Disney Plus.
Being the big Star Wars fan that he is, he is very much looking forward to the launch of Disney Plus UK on 24th March. He’s been intentionally avoiding any and all spoilers of The Mandalorian, and is literally counting down the days to the launch!
Keen to encourage the girls to be creative with their gifts for Peach, I asked them to make a birthday card each for him (and to save ourselves the potential extra cost of £12 for said cards). There was a little bit of disgruntle at the beginning, but they all took the task and made it their own. And it is lovely to see their individual creations 😍
I have found that present and gift ideas get harder the older we get. We tend to have an idea of what we would like to get ourselves, but for others we struggle. Also, having five kids; we often think of other ways the money on a gift for each other can be spent on either something for the girls or something in the house 🤦🏼♀️
I took the girls shopping at the weekend to pick a gift up each to give to Peach. They each had £5 to spend, and they did so wisely. They put their money together to treat him to a bottle of rum (I purchased 😉) and then bought him a little gift each of either his favourite snacks, sauce or chocolate.
Peach and I had a lovely lunch together at Tithe Barn in Cosby. And then this evening, we have had family round for a Ponchinello’s Pizza and an amazing homemade Biscoff Cheesecake 😍
