It's Book Week this week. I was so pleased when I found out that Alexandra's new school celebrated this week. There have been displays of books and a show and yesterday she got to dress up to go to school. They could choose either a book character or the theme "Fuel the Mind".
I guess one plus for ballet and end of year concerts is getting to use your costume again. It made all the hard work worth it!! So she went as Tinkerbell! Her hair was still beautiful from her ballet exam the day before - she must really love it as she has gone to school today with it still done. It was well and truly glued to her head, so won't be going anywhere terribly quickly.
I have done the edges of the garden beds along the front pathway and driveway.
The stick in the middle is a standard burgandy iceberg rose that is underplanted with Poppies and White Primula. I finished the beds off with mulch. What a job that was!

I had a really enjoyable day this week and had some much needed stitching time with a lovely group of ladies. We had a lovely time at The Quilters Angel at Highfields. It is in a lovely complex with a coffee shop and other delightful shops.
On my way down the backstairs this morning (and there are quite a few of them), somehow I miss the last few. Well, I was a crying heap at the bottom - I can tell you!!!
Two skinned knees and a very big bruise coming out on my arm. I can feel my body becoming stiffer and stiffer.
The things we do for a picture for our Blogs!!!! I hope you enjoy this tulip very, very, very much!!
Not much else here other than much pie making at the bakery. Hoping for a more enjoyable week this coming one!

Early in that time, this is how Mitchell came home from school one day. I was not a very happy Mummy when I saw this hole in his pants. The story that came with it was one that made me cranky and laugh at the same time!! (Only because Mitchell is a good story teller)!
Late in the afternoon, the clouds cleared away and I thought the garden looked really nice. We have had some heavy frosts since then, so the grass is not as green as this now.
