thread She had a great day.
We'd had time to put the effort in and plan.

We'd decorated well, involving stuffing loads of balloons behind the blind in the lounge, where there's a bay window. So when she got up I asked her to open the blind and she loved it. Then when the balloons had cleared a bit she saw a giant 4 and all her presents.

We then sat in the conservatory for breakfast and she got excited because of something on the table, then looked up a bit and saw her new dinosaur paddling pool.

We had a few zooms with family, and I took a fence panel out in the back garden (there's a small wall and then concrete panels inside that, so creates distance) and had arranged for a few families to drop by over the afternoon and say hello which was really nice.

Then I set up her room as a cinema (sofa, telly, popcorn, expensive icecream in little tubs) and we watched Sword in the Stone. And we had candy floss because she'd asked for it. I borrowed a friend's machine and did a really crap job of it.

I'm sad that I didn't get to hang out with her friends' parents and it was far more effort than we'd normally do, but she had a great day.
