Its belles first day of her last week at primary school.
Today we were treated to a play by all of the year 6 students which included stories and dancing and singing and music. I loved my lil Belle in the Irish dance scene, just bobbing along in her own sweet way. I left her hair down and curly to try and add a bit of height with two side bobbles (she looked so teeny and cute amongst her peers). I would dearly have loved to have taken pictures but under the new headmasters wishes, we were not allowed. Or so it was requested from him, at least. So when I turn up with no camera in hand to be met with every other parent with either a camera, mobile phones and video cameras I was kind of PISSED OFF. I dont have a memory of the show except for in my head. Im happy to admit that I could kill! So I am am going to beg that Belle can bring part of her cosume home so I can take one or two for her memory box.
Belles week, this week, includes a trip to the cinema and lunch out with school at her favvo restaurant at Frankie and Benny's and a trip to the bowls in a limousine on thursday evening....all with her class mates. As I was sat in the hall this afternoon I got to overhear its not your traditional ten pin bowling - its CROWN GREEN bowling. WHAT? She cant pick the balls up (or "woods" as they are commonly known)........ thats going to be funny! But at least she can be with her pals and experience her first limousine ride.
Then on Friday she has her last day in her teeny uniform...... she is pretty cool about it and traditionally the kids come out of school crying their lil eyes out. Ive witnessed that for the last 4 years at this primary, I wonder how Belle will cope with that? Ive asked how she feels and as usual its nonchalant and too boring an answer to give. So we shall see.
So my pictures today are some of belle last night.
Here she is cutting the LOOOOng grass for the piggies. Mark managed to mow the lawns after a little dry spell all day yest. Its been 5 weeks since he cut it last becuase of the darn rain. So we cut the last of the long grass that the piggies love so much. I love that belle kept her slippers on and hacked away at the most juiciest bits.She is such a caring piggy momma! And judging by the size of fatty arbuckle Doodles - its not long before either 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 babies are born. Im hoping she gives birth during the day so I can see but Im not sure if Im going to pass out or not
