See you soon!
Rosie that is. We loaded up the car this morning with various bits of camping stuff and took our eldest offspring to her first ever Guide camp. She found a girl called Helen that she gets on well with pretty much as soon as we got there and went off with her so we left and came on home. She's going to be gone for 4 days - the longest time she's ever been away from us and, to be honest, I'm finding it harder to deal with than her (I don't think she's finding it that hard at all!) I've been going around all day constantly worried about her!
Anyway, I shall have much to occupy me over the next few days as I'm using the time she's not here to decorate her bedroom - it hasn't been done since she was about 7! Gone is the dinosaur border (although she still loves her dinos) and (soon) will be gone the pink walls. Instead she's having - her choice - of a rather lovely soft apple green. I'm making her some cute accessories for the room to which I'll photograph when I'm done. I think it's going to look gorgeous :)
Taking advantage of her absence - we also went off to the shops and grabbed her birthday pressie as well .... can't say what it is yet because her birthday isn't until the end of September and she might see this!
So that was today. Tomorrow, Tim has to go to work STUPIDLY early (he has to get up just past 3.00 a.m!!!!!!!) because it's the Bournemouth Airshow and they are expecting to be busy. I shall be doing more painting - did the glossing today and starting on the apple walls - and trying to entertain April at the same time. April is, in fact, utterly desolate without Rosie .... poor child!
