I had originally planned a very low-key party for my daughter’s 4th birthday. But what started as a few friends having a morning coffee in the park while the kids amused themselves on the equipment, suddenly blew out into 22 children, 14 adults and a stressed out mum - ie, me.
When you have an event like (sound the trumpets) a child’s 4th birthday, you need everything in your life to align in order to meet the challenge. Will your partner organise something besides the musical statues music (hint hint)? Will the kids nag you til you buy them a new dress for the party (obviously). Will the fridge fit the cake or do you need to pick it up on the morning (it didn’t). Will the car be big enough to lug all the stuff to the park (pretty please). If all things align, it should make the whole event easier.
I lived with the KIA Sportage SLi for this particular week. Did it help me with my last minute planning? Or was it lacking when put to the children’s birthday test?
Watch the video for the whole review, but you’ll see that while the Sportage is one of the best in its class, zippy on the road and stylish too, the boot space could be better and I did end up making two trips to the park. But, being a lifelong overpacker, I blame myself.
