A small troupe of girls with baby-soft feet left my house this morning.

Turns were taken in the foot-spa; a takeaway curry was consumed; Disney’s Enchanted was watched; a Hannah Montana DVD game was played; airbeds and sleeping blankets were squashed up together; pink pyjamas were worn; and whispers, giggles and serious amounts of chatting were heard until just before midnight.

My daughter's birthday sleepover was the kind of night I thought she would never have. It was the kind of night where I couldn’t stop smiling at her smile.
