The girls made a telephone out of two plastic cups and some string and were delighted to find out, it really works! When the string was pulled tight, their voices were very loud inside the other's cup. It's hilarious, the things they say to each other. I overheard Livvie saying to her little sister, 'I'm a bit worried about big school.... How will I know how to get to the cafe?'.
(The last time we were there, they had a cake and coffee stand, set up for the parents. I have had to very gently let her know there is no cafe, nor is there even a canteen. Oh, the look of horror on her face... she was devastated! I think back to my own childhood, and I don't think I even knew what a cafe was at age 5!)
In other news, I made a new cover for our ironing board... I don't know what possessed me, but it's a nice change.
