A parcel for Miss A

The walk home from school across the fields was more than idyllic today, with the sun shining down on two very happy children and a very happy dog! Chatting and munching on tiffin we ambled along making plans for the weekend ahead.

I had quite forgotten that a parcel had been delivered for Miss A, until I heard a squeal of delight when she found it on the kitchen table.

Not much time was wasted in opening the box and squirreling away it's contents with a huge grin on her face.

A few minutes later we were presented with a Victorian maid! Miss A's project this term has been the Victorians and there is a planned trip to visit a museum at Woodstock. During the visit they get to experience life in a real Victorian Classroom and are all invited to come in costume. I am ashamed to admit that the mop cap is about all my sewing skills are up to so I temporarily removed my super mum title and ordered something fitting from the web! Rather a good result I think.

Hi there what fun to be a victorian child for a day, though I am sure it wasn't as much fun for the real victorian children! Your dog is cute, we are allowed pets at work (it's a military thing, and one of the guys here is awaiting a new Springer pup. We have seen the pics of her and she is simply gorgeous. His other dog, Holly died recently. Freezing here, watery sun and heavy showers forecast later, where is the Spring I ask myself? Dev X
