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.
