Yesterday was the last day of term for Emilia, the sun shone and the school managed an impromptu sports day. Each class did one race each - Emilia's was the egg and spoon race - then the pre-school children had a race although Madeleine was rather disgruntled that they had sellotaped the eggs to the spoons! After the races everyone, including parents were treated to Ice lollies. A wonderful morning :)
Emilia had an afternoon playing Tag Rugby which she loves and when I picked her up she had rosy cheeks and rosier shoulders. Bad Mummy wasn't expecting it to be so warm and sunny and hadn't put any sun cream or even a hat on her. *slaps wrist*
These are Emilia's socks, made in Regia cotton given to me by the wonderful MaryAnnLucy in the last knitty sp round. She's a sweety. I've still got 60g of yarn left so I plan on making a pair of ankle socks for Maddie and then using the remainder with another colour of Regia Cotton to make myself some funky socks. The pattern I used was from Vogue knitting on the go - Socks 2 and is the girls lace ankle socks. I love this book and plan on collecting more VK on the go books.
Better go, I've let Emilia play Make-up shops with Madeleine unsupervised....
Oh yes, first day of the school holidays, dh away overnight and guess what time they woke me up...6am! Grrr! I sent them away to play Polly Pocket but couldn't settle.
