Waivers and birthdays
This is nuts – I have just had to sign a waiver for Harry to attend a friend’s birthday party!! Seriously, this is how it works: no liability to the parents or venue, should Harry have a tumble and injure his toe/face/arm etc. They are all hot on the legal stuff here.
Birthday parties are hot to trot here too. Apparently, over the summer there was a lot of competition in the 11-14 girls’ birthday age range, with one girl having ponies trotting round her garden at her party and another had a frigging ZOO delivered!!!!! Really? Who cleared up the shit, that’s what I want to know.
So, no triangle sandwiches, no cheese and pineapple on sticks in the USA – oh no, I expect sushi or a platter of sliders for the kids’ lunch with these events, a celebrity appearance and a party bag containing Chanel. I’ve never enjoyed children’s birthday parties, and that’s a fact, but I am very ready to have my eyes opened to a whole new world of possibilities 🙂
