No.2 and I decided that the playhouse needed a little bit of jazzing up for the summer. So we cut out triangles and made a bunting this afternoon. She stitched them all together, which was trying at times, but she did a great job in the end. Jolly bobbins running out are so frustrating are they not?!! Mind you, stitches falling off the line are just as bad!!
And in the last light of the day it was ready to hang. Well temporarily anyway, held up with blutac.
We will have to beg Daddy to put some little hooks up tomorrow. The flags are made from a tea towel and some canvas. We know it will need throwing out at the end of summer, but that's OK. Instant summer colour was what we needed.
Now we think some brightly coloured Petunias will have to be purchased for the dinky little window boxes. Don't know why I'm bothering really, as they usually die fairly quickly from lack of watering. Well I just don't remember to water them all the way up there! Too stuffed after the day to think about them to tell the truth.
Gosh by tea time I'm about done with the day! Those of you with little people, do you also find that last hour just about impossible to get through? That's when you need a lovely Mary Poppins I think. Still I must admit, now that the playhouse is clean and tidy, they are spending most of their afternoons up there and leaving me in peace. Although that may sound rather good, at the other end we remember all the undone homework and lunchboxes that have been forgotten about. And that's when the loveliness all breaks down and panic begins.
But I do think play is much more important than homework any day. You're only young for such a short time and this time is to be enjoyed. Now my time is about to end and the pickups to begin. Kindy first then school. Dear Papa has been on his first kindy trip today - hope he's survived!! Talk later.
