IT IS RAINING. Ok. I have got the weather out of the way. They say it is the wettest Wimbeldon in history.
Today we had a mini (as in toddler) fashion show after school. My Year 10 non examination girls have made toddler dresses and so we found a couple of models and rigged a catwalk out of my tables, draped a backdrop with some of my fabric, and it was absolutely great. The big girls were so excited to see real live babies in the dresses they made, and I was so proud of them. The lazy ones, who have not finished their dresses will be SO put out tomorrow in class when I show them the photos. I foresee a sudden spurt of dressmaking on the horizon.
The springs on the 2 most comfortable chairs in my house have expired. Kaput. One now descends to the depths when one sits in them. This is not good. I decided to do some repairs today but have left a vital piece of equipment at school. Most of my useful tools seem to have found their way to school. I must start rounding them up to bring home. Tomorrow. I will do spring repair tomorrow. How exciting. We may not need to consider installing hoists after all.
My sister is arriving for a few days next week, and that is something really good to look forward to. I could point out that this time last year it was in the mid 30s every day. She flew over exactly a year ago next week, to be here for the funeral. She should bring her wellies and winter gear this time. Marge???? Do you hear? I wonder where I can get plans for an Ark.......
