Once in town I ducked into the local IGA and grabbed a couple of bags of chips. Back at the car I quickly prepared my "platters of food" by shaking the chips into the bowls (which I had thrown some glad wrap over as I left - I thought this would mean I looked more organised) See - here is a photo of my "party preparations".

Farmboy and I then walked into his classroom while I tried not to see all the other Mums bringing in plates of gorgeous home made quiches and wholemeal mini pizzas. I did tell Farmboy's lovely teacher about my version of her "late notice" and she had a good laugh about it. I must admit it is nice to wake up today and know the most I have to do this morning is get Farmboy to his swimming lesson at the local pool.
I hope everyone else has had a good week. The Farm Christmas party was a big success and The Farmchildren managed to tax just about all our guests' toys from their Christmas crackers. Farmboy even got up early the next morning to scout out the verandah floor to see if any fell under the table. He scored a mini biro, a tape measure and a rubber bouncy ball for his efforts.
