Birthday Help!

In a little over a weeks time we have a week of two very special birthdays, on the 23rd March, our oldest ‘Legs’ will turn 3 followed three days later by ‘Mouse’ turning 1.

Now luckily we have the present side sorted but unfortunately after over a month of illness and some financial restraints due to me coming to the end of my maternity leave we haven’t planned anything to actually celebrate.

We have decided against parties for their friends as there just isn’t enough time, but we are hoping to still make the days special!

So this is where the help from you comes in, please leave suggestions of what we can do to make the days special for our two littlies!

Many of you know I am a mum to two little darlings, what many of you won’t know is I am on the Parent Committee for a local Charity Playgroup!

Legs (my 2.5 yr old) goes to Sherwood Playgroup It is a lovely group and has really benefitted him in a variety of ways and he loves going (we even have to play nursery at home!)!

There are over 60 children who attend the group throughout the week! It is very affordable for parents (lower fees than I have seen elsewhere), provides a wonderful learning atmosphere for the children and has a great Ofsted report! As a registered charity (No. 1004373), it really does rely on additional funds to the fees parents pay, these are normally gained through grants and fundraising!

The parent’s committee raise and manage funds for the playgroup and we are currently hoping to organise a Christmas Party (including visit and presents from Santa) for the children and to buy some new Sensory equipment which the group is in need of)

So why am I blogging about it? Well, as the Playgroup is a charity we are low on funds, so are doing a fundraising day on 3rd December 2010 and we are looking for help from others……I know you may want to help so here are some ways you can

Donate something for our Raffle or Tombola

Provide food/drinks for the party

Provide presents for the Children!

We will be having a board up throughout December to display all donators details (so please include some business cards when sending anything!)

Please contact me on info@piddleypix.com if you can help, anything will be very gratefully received!!

On a slightly side note, I also have a friend who is collecting book and toy donations to give to the Lincoln Hospital Children’s ward for Christmas, so if you can help with this please contact me too (stating this is the cause you would like to help with!!)

Just had to show off the pretty little pendant I won this week from the lovely Maria Divine!I can’t wait to wear it, so nice to receive a treat for me!

It arrived all nicely packaged and a wonderful little card, I was so chuffed to have won it – after a few weeks of very little sleep due to teething, colds and much more, it was a great ‘cheer me up’!

I am not sure what to place it on to wear, it is a gorgeous pink heart, with small pink crystal! My initial thought was ribbon, but I got into what thickness, colour, length, so may consider the ‘easy’ option of a chain!

So come on, help me please, What do you think I should go for chain or ribbon, let me know by commenting below!
