Oh blimey, it's been a week since I wrote anything. The truth is I think I'm longing for the end of term more than the children are - we've all had colds, we've been flat out with work and school and really, enough's enough. Only another week to go, hurrah!
I have been making things too. Yesterday was the School Fayre, which went pretty well - we were busy for 2 hours solid, even with a cold and yet another sick bug felling half the PTA committee and a good number of the children. We sold a lot of mulled wine :-) I was running a children's craft stall, with lots of glitter and glue. It was a hit with smaller children - and the parents who realised they got 10 minutes babysitting for 30p! The older children - less so. Oh well. At least we have lots of bits cut out ready to do it all again next year ...
We offered them hearts and trees:
stained glass snowflakes:
lovely smiley Rudolphs:
and some shiny stockings that completely failed to hit the spot, so they need a rethink. More fluff and sparkle needed, methinks.
By the way, please note the gorgeously glittered display twigs. They grow that way in our garden, you know.
PS Do you think the teachers will be inundated with Nigella's Chocolate Pistachio Fudge this year, or can I risk it? I've got Oxfam Unwrapped stuff for them too but this is something the girls could "help" with.
