This week she has been rehearsing many an hour for her annual performing arts school production at the De la Warr Pavillion in mid-February. She is in Junior musical theatre and Grade 4 ballet which she loves and is looking forward to this year's production of...
I will be chaperoning for all but 1 show which we will be watching on the Wednesday night. It's hard work chaperoning but good fun and well worth getting involved behind the scenes.

The only roles you have to audition for are the acting parts. It always proves to be well worth attending and thoroughly good entertainment for gloomy mid-February.
Alice and I do many things together and I am really enjoying teaching her how to knit, she is getting better with smaller needles now and even whispered to me that she is considering joining her year 5 knitting club on Wednesdays which I am secretly hoping she will ;0) You go girl!

I really am sentimental about my childhood and love anything retro/vintage and even though I know that Alice has moved beyond crayons onto pastels/acrylic paints/watercolours I just HAD to buy these for her stocking as they remind me of hot, hazy childhood memories and the big joy something so simple can bring!
Where was I?.... oh yes I came home to find this really sweet drawing sitting on our bed where she knew I would find it
Thank you my sweetest heart
You know me oh so well xox
