(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: planning ahead.

Clearly, Flea is a girl who likes to plan ahead. 

Today, she amused herself by writing her wish-list for Father Christmas…


Then she planned her birthday party.

Each face is someone she's going to invite. What are the X's? Well, I'm glad you asked. Those are the children she's already decided to uninvite. I think the power might have gone to her head. 



Sally is a full-time blogger and founder of the Tots100, Trips100, Foodies100 and HIBS100 communities, along with the MAD Blog Awards. She spends a bit too much time on the Internet. She’s also a very happy Mum to Flea, the world’s coolest ten year old.

    You should ask her if she has any ideas for her wedding… she might need the head start on that one if she is univiting people!

    Blimey, can I borrow her? I’m quite disorganised sometimes and I’m hopeless at uninviting people. I think she could teach me a thing or two.

    @Heather – oh, I want a big party. Payback for all those presents we have to buy all year!
    @CJ – oh yes, and she’s delighted I’ve posted it on the Internet so that FC will see it, and know what she wants.
    @Karen – wow. Well, she definitely hasn’t inherited a planning streak from me!
    @ModernMother – LOL! My daughter’s handwriting is a little cryptic, I admit.
    @PippaD – I don’t want to give her ideas!
    @Barbara – Oh, feel free. She’s quite, quite ruthless with her guest list.
    @MadHouse – oh good, smiles are good and I hope you’ve had a few more today x

    Wise girl to plan ahead. My daughter asked me the other day how many sleeps there were until Christmas. I said half a million which to her means a very long time.
    Is number 4 on Flea’s list a monkey?!!

    Yep. A skateboard, a maxi-car, an ant, and a monkey.
    What can I tell you? She’s weird.
