Hmm. It seems I'm only capable of posting once a week at the moment.
There is a lot going on, and some days I have felt like I'm being assaulted on every front. But today was a nice day, if a little wet and blustery. Spring seems to have deserted us.
Last Sunday we took it slow (and we intend to do the same this Sunday!) and had some screen time, baked some muffins, Poppet did some sketching and then we headed out for an early dinner at an English pub with some Aussie friends. There's something very comforting about having friends who agree that 3.30 on a Sunday is a very good time for dinner with kids. Home and in bed by 7. I even got a bit of stitching done!
I've included a couple of shots of Poppet dressed as Mrs Wolf from The Jungle Book. Her musical theatre class did their performance on Monday and it was very cute, if barely audible. Poppet really enjoyed herself but has confirmed my suspicions that her nerves may prevent the performer in her from busting out. Much like her mother. Sigh.
We shall stick to performances at home for now. This morning, for instance, I witnessed a dance which reminded me greatly of David Brent's weird dance in The Office. She's nothing if not a total nutter, which suits us just fine...
Here's to crazy. We all need a bit of it!
