Yesterday Grandma and Granddad took the sausages to their pottery class, leaving me to get on with decorating. However, I couldn’t face any more painting after doing it for 3 days straight so I got to work on my to-do list instead.
This morning however, it was time for them to go. Luckily we were able to keep ourselves busy to stop us moping about the house. D got down to making up a new story with her two princess dolls. We did this before (here) and it worked very well for getting their imaginations going – much more so than staring at a blank piece of paper! So I spent a while with D, helping her to take lots of photos of her dolls in various positions. Meanwhile, M was happily cuddling her Baby Annabell on the sofa.
It wasn’t long before we had to go to a workshop on Japan which was being given by the Japanese Society. The class was quite gentle which suited M really well. I began to re-explain what the ladies were saying to M (like I usually do) but M assured me that she understood already. The pace didn’t really suit D though…
We were read a little Japanese story, then the children made origami samurai hats and had their names written on the front in Japanese. Then the ladies demonstrated how to put a Kimono on. M was brave enough to ask if she could wear one too!
