I was surprised (yet again!) at how clever Kit has become at picking things online – she knows just how to dart her eyes in the right directions till she’s found what she needs in the least amount of time and she will point her sticky little fingers and touch the screen gleefully with “Can I have that one, pleeeeese?”.
And yet again, I was surprised at the collection Amazon has and tried my best to stick to the Super Saver options but the girls don’t understand, do they? They had to choose a different seller whose tea service looked (in my opinion, wee bit) smarter (shipping dearer of course) and Kat is now that age where she reads all (literally ALL) user comments before making a purchase online SO after much frustration, occasional nodding off (me, who else here is suffering from lack of sleep?), thumb sucking (when Kit got tired of Kat reading everything, we ordered a tea set and I just hoped that it would be the right size as sending a tea set back is not my cup of tea (no pun intended!)
It arrived yesterday and it was a beauty – the girls had their first grown up tea party yesterday with hot chocolate in the teapot, cold milk in the milk pot and sugar where it should be...this one actually has 2 serving plates which were decorated with fresh sandwiches, choc chip cookies and a slice of cake (compliments me) – the girls had a hearty tea with some vague background music playing from Kat's iTunes in her room followed by Kat playing Piano while Kit sang ‘Part of my World’ from The Little Mermaid...one of those rare sisterly evenings which last for over 5 minutes!
