My wonder babe no longer will wear this uniform (below).
My bellabaloo will go to school in her normal clothes for the next two days as part of their end of term privileges. I took my camera to school this avvo (against the rules you know!!!) and snapped a picture with her and her favourite teacher (and mine - and Glens, her buddy). Mrs Pilling taught my husband as well and that was 30 odd years ago. Isn't she a whipper snapper of a babe? Don't ask me why Belle is pulling the most horrific face, she has started doing this a lot recently.... the wind will change one day and her face will stick. Little monkey!
She really has the most wonderful heart compared to some of the ogres Belle has been taught by in the past (and I really mean OGRES of SHREK proportions - only more Ogrish.... bluergh)). Mrs Pilling taught her in year 3 and in year 6 and knows every little thing about my sweet child. She shows so much love and kindness to every child, its no wonder she is adored by every child and adult in the school. I will miss her the most, let alone Belle. The photos serve as a purpose as I'm tying these pictures into a very special book I am making for her as a gift from Ellie. Ive been frantically researching wonderful quotes to fill it with but I also want to add our personal thanks for nurturing our lil lady. Ive even put photo's of belle as a toddler in there so that Mrs Pilling can grasp the full "belle story". I cant wait for my lil girl to give it to her, carefully wrapped in tissue paper.
Belle got her school report too. Both mark and I are very very happy for our daughter regardless of ability, grade or rank. We really are and we never will mould into something she cannot be. Her report was written to reflect a quiet and sensitive child who often day dreams. I should be a little cross about that but day dreams are a GORGEOUS way to spend your life. I hope she dreams forever. Belle ain't ever going to be a scholar and if she "gets by" in school to do her dream job, a masseuse of all things, then we will be delighted. She is such a dolly, it makes me almost cry to see her just "get by" in life. But "get by" she does, quite perfectly.
After the photos in the playground I gave her the news that Bad Boy Fizz was going back to the pet store. Its unfair to keep a male and female piggy in the house when you DON'T want babies. (Fizz is the scruffy chocolate brown one, Doodles is the mixed colour babe).Belle was fine but Glen took it pretty bad, he wanted to take Fizz home but they have a rabbit and rabbots and guineas dont mix! The shop were most apologetic about the mix up of our piggies. Whilst in the shop, the kiddo's had a mooch at all the pets within and I spied this fella. he is so cute to say he is a RAT....blueugh, blech, vom, yak yak yak. I promised belle that when Doodles has her babies that she can choose a girl baby (of whom belle wants to call Nibbles, thus far!) and we will give homes to the rest. Judging by the size of doodle-bug, I reckon she is going to have 3. We have been loving and petting her in the wake of Bad Boy Fizz being rehoused. I want to be there when she has her babies so she has some company and can assist if she is struggling. Belle keeps popping in to see her and saying "don't be afraid Doodles, we are here for you. Don't be afraid". Catches my breath it does.
