First Mieke had a Sleepover Party - her first ever and she was so excited. She invited her 3 BFF (best friend forevers) and we had tea at Franky & Benny's, then went home where we made lovely smelling goodies including soap and fizzballs and lipbalm. Then the girls played Wii Sing and at midnight they had a special South African midnight feast including flings, creamsoda, biltong, ice zoos, fizzers - mmmmm.
Then they were supposed to go to bed... but didn't. Eventually it did happen between 2 and 4 am. I think.
But she had a lovely time so it was worth the pain!!
Then her granny Antoinette came to visit from South Africa. It was halfterm holidays and Werner took some leave so we did loads of things - visited Arundel Castle, Wisley, Westfield London and Werner & I spent a night at the Marriott Chancery Court on our own - what a luxurious treat.
On Mieke's birthday we took the train and tube to the O2 and saw Disney on Ice which the girls loved. Of course Silke had to have a crown with ears and they both got Stitch cups with rainbow slush in them.
