Today was the first day of our half-term and with friends not arriving until 4pm for tea, we had almost the whole day ahead of us with no plans....so we stayed in our pyjamas....until 1.30pm!!!!! I so love the change of pace that half-term brings and usually like at least one relaxed day like this in every holiday. However, I may have to give this up as Zebra-girl revealed that actually getting dressed so late made her feel 'all lazy and eugggggggggghhhhh'....oh, so that was just me that was enjoying the extended bed-wear time then.
Once up and dressed she started making this lovely star with her Hama beads. After about half an hour she enlisted me and Dinosaur-boy as her helpers and we diligently sorted the required colours into piles for her so that she could put them on to the peg board more quickly. Zebra-girl gave us such frequent praise and encouragement that it made me think how lovely she would be to work for, should she end up being someone's boss. I was very nervous that I might drop all her careful work as I took it over to be ironed, but thankfully got it there and off the peg-board in one piece. I love her choice of colours.
