Rabbit hole

Hello my fellow bloggers I thought I'd just share one of my all time favourite '60's songs with you since I have fallen down the rabbit hole this week with my 10 year old Alice appearing in her local performing arts school production of Alice in Wonderland.

I have had the joy of chaperoning as I normally do in February half term and seeing her as a frog footman for musical theatre and whiting fish for her ballet is always a glorious moment of what a blessing we have in her. She really loves these productions and has now asked if she can join another class ... jazz dancing next term :0)

We are really excited to watch the show tonight with one set of grandparents, how lovely it would be if my mum and dad could be "beamed up" from South Africa just for tonight!

In amongst all the costumes, make-up, hair and general excitement (and stress in pulling it off with 180+ children from 5 - 18 years old) all good chaperone's remember to take this with them....

Can you see my needles sticking out my bag?

A bit of click click clacking of needles is essential to calm the nerves in-between scenes and children's lost and found parts of their costumes!

I sure am looking forward to being relieved of my duties and sitting back, relaxing and enjoying the show from the auditorium tonight.

Thank you for visiting my blog, thank you for your lovely friendships and comments, much appreciated xox

Hope you all have little sunshine moments over the next few days.

  2. Definitely a case of 'too much like hard work' but you wouldn't miss it for the world! Enjoy the show.

  3. I spy another tea cozy! Fun times! How much fun would that be, Alice is so lucky to be given these opportunities and you are so lucky that she wants them!!! Sounds like a great time in her childhood where everything is exciting and how proud would you be watching???!!!

  4. What a lovely post! The show seems great! So much kids!! Have a great weekend.

  5. wow, looks great, if a lot of hard work! I downloaded Jefferson Airplane, white rabbit a few years ago when i heard it played on the Soppranos, I love it too x

  6. That looks like such good fun - can't wait for my little ballerina to have her first performance. xXx
