last minute

I love my eldest boy as much as I love his brothers....however, at 8:25 am today he advised me of his weekend plans, which includes going bowling with a friend for his birthday (the big boy thing with NO invitation is taking some getting used to!!)....
and he needed a gift...
I wasn't overly keen on him :)

He said - just get him some sweets...oh and a card.....
Well I thought 'just some sweets' sounded a tad boring so at 2:50 this afternoon (oops, I've been busy and I forgot!) I whipped up this gift and card -

Boys are really tricky to whip up a quick gift for...but I'm pleased with the card using an old battered Beano annual for assistance...and I'm sure he can find some use for a drawstring bag once he has troughed his way through the contents!!

Filled with Haribo sweets and chocolate coins (reduced to 25p in Boots incidentally!!)- I don't think its bad for a 20 minute rush job!!

edited to say thank you for my recent tags and awards...I'm a bit rubbish at doing anything about them but I promise to try and remember to post about them later x

Well done Claire, My DS is certainly finding a fondness for those Haribos, good for bribes, no I would never do such a thing :)
