Book Week




Next week, the school is holding a dress-up day for Book week. The kids can dress as their favourite book characters. Today, while the kids were at school I have been sorting out their costumes. Kade chose Leif from the Deltora books by Emily Rodda and India chose Blossom from the Powerpuff Girls, though technically not a book character.

Can you see the resemblance? hehehe...Kade looks like an angry rockstar and India's bow is a tad too large. We will see if they actually leave the house like this Tuesday morning (with wig trimmed and orange hair spray for India of course).

Enjoy your weekend. Its been miserable weather here..rain which we are not used too. I have been feeling as flat as a tack and stressed as a beacon the last few days. Lets hope the weekend is a good one.

Thanks all for your lovely comments and hello to my newest followers.

Don't the kids look great, with those blonde locks Kade will beating the girls off with his sword and the jewelled belt he's wearing is awesome. India's bow is even bigger than anything Fergie ever wore in her hay day..hehe!!(They'll be asking who's Fergie).
l really hope you're feeling better and less stressed, and that the weekend's a good one for you and your family.
