I was thinking today that it's been a while since I made any dresses for 'Dress A Girl'. I stopped as we began to spend more time with Tom and then of course after he passed away we had our hands full sorting everything out with Number 14, closely followed by Christmas.
Anyway, I had a quick look at what they've been up to and spotted some pencil bags which will be easy enough for me to run up. They're super simple as they're based on the drawstring method. I cut up one of Mark's old shirts and managed to get 11 bags out of it. I'll sew them tomorrow and pop a small ruler, pencil, sharpener, eraser and notebook in. I'll have a hunt around the charity shops over the next few days to try and find some material that's a bit more girly.
Lunch today was a small prawn cocktail open sandwich, courtesy of leftovers from Saturday's meal.
The table tennis has brought a competitive streak out in myself and Mark. Our main problem is getting the right combination of 'aggressively competitive v. restrained due to lack of space'. Playing on a dining table that's only about a quarter of the size of the real thing has its drawbacks.
Suffice to say there are plenty of shouts of "mind the cabinet, watch the light, ouch, do you really need to hit it that hard".
I think I'm going to have to book a table at the leisure centre so we can have a full on battle and get it out of our childish systems.
