rooster decided that he wanted a party this year. a bit strange from him as he tends to shy away from them really. he had one when he was 3 but since then he has always chosen to do something with us rather than a party. you might remember the dressing up that occurred last year, you don’t remember? check it out here and here. thankfully this year didn’t included dressing up, we were
party prep ready, cake baked, chocolate lego moulded, party bags filled up and balloons pumped up.
but what to do?
well rather strangely perhaps we decided to have a party in a paint shop. yep you did just read that right, a paint shop was the venue for roosters 6th birthday party, and why not!
to be fair, it’s a rather extraordinary paint shop called “colour makes people happy” and it is run by a man called simon march.
the shop came about from simons frustrations of only being able to buy paint from uninspiring hardware stores or stuff interiors stores which left you feeling slightly intimidated. he saw that perhaps there could be a place for a paint shop, whose environment was focused solely on colour, a place to get advice and to choose the right colours for your home. simon wanted to help customers choose colours that they like rather than choosing colour they think they should like, and so the shop was born.
