Red Nose Day *updated*




Both girlies had to wear red to school and nursery today - They looked really cute with their red noses on. It was hard trying to get a photo without them being cross eyed, staring at the big red glob on the end of their noses! I enjoy Red Nose Day, I love the way to whole country gets involved to raise money for those less fortunate and lets face it, so many people are less fortunate than you or me. Today I saw many children from infants to teenagers wearing red on the way to school, and I'm sure there are plenty of silly things planned for them to get up to! Emilia's school is singing the 'Red Nose Song' to all the parents at 3pm today. She's been practising the song all week and I'm looking forward to hearing it sung by the whole school. I didn't buy the red hair spray that they were after though, last time they had colour in their hair it stayed for a month!


Todays Yarny goodness comes courtesy of Minmo mohair. This is a hand dyed blend of Mohair and Blue Faced Leicester. Aran weight, 214g in this skein. It's up for swap as mohair seems to irritate me at the moment so if you'd like it, make me an offer :)



I've got some shortbread in the oven at the moment, I'll be having fun with some condensed milk later, making millionaires shortbread. Emilia thinks it is fantastic :)


Just got back from E's school. I nearly cried, they all looked so sweet and they sang their little hearts out. I really wanted someone to share the moment with, so I thought I'd blog it and share the moment with the world! Click on the photo for a larger picture, E is slap bang in the middle, about to clap. They were filmed by a camera man from Spotlight (SouthWest BBC news programme) so could possibly be on the television tonight too :)


Off to pick M up from nursery now, then back to school to pick E up after her football training. She loves it but this will be her last one this term as they have changed the day to tuesday and she has swimming lessons on tuesdays. Never mind.
The millionaires shortbread is lovely!

Red nose day is such a great idea, and so much fun for the kids!

That yarn is amazing. It's mohair, but it doesn't look insanely fuzzy, just soft, squishy, and fun to knit with.

What a cute and fun idea for the girls.

The yarn is just lovely. I wouldn't have guessed mohair though.

It's so great to get kids involved in charities and things that are bigger than them. THey looks so cute with their noses. That yarn looks so nice as well!

Oh they all look so sweet, I love the way the schools get them all involved too.

Laughing at your wish for flat chestedness, we're never satisfied are we? I loved my pregnancy/breastfeeding cleavage, it was so sad when I finally stopped feeding and they deflated forever (possible even flatter than before or maybe just droopier....
