It's a good thing 'doll time' runs differently to 'real time' so my dolls could have their New Year Party even though we are already well into January.
And it's also a good thing that I won the Nommy Miniatures giveaway on The Travelling Twig blog last year or they wouldn't have had any food for their party. Well, actually they would - I have two slices of toast from an early Barbie Fashion Pack - but that's really not party food.
Instead they had meatballs, noodles and fortune cookies:
As you can see, one doll opted to use a plate for her meatballs
And even our cat attended the party. She stole the cushion from the playset box as we were setting up and claimed it as her latest toy. So far, it has survived her better than I expected.
In case you are wondering why this is a different cat to the one who was sleeping on my computer keyboard in the last entry - that beautiful cat disappeared around the middle of last year (that was one of the reasons my comments became a bit sporadic from the middle to end of last year). We searched and searched but have never seen or heard anything of her since. In our searching, we contacted our local Animal Aid which takes all strays picked up in our shire, and kept an eye on their website where they list the animals they have for adoption. After a few months, we saw this cutie who really needed a home. She is about 18 months old and had been in the care of Animal Aid for 10 months - more than half her life. So Luma, as we have called her, has come to live with us and I am sure you will see more of her over time as she is a real character.
Anyway, HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone. And I hope you will hear more from me this year than last year.
