Right. Pirates? Yes I did get my pirate craft fix last week. I finished most of the eye patches for the goody bags that the kids coming to Alex's party will get. I got as far as I could with the elastic I had. The last few shouldn't take too long once I've restocked my supplies.
Because of international talk like a pirate day, scarecrows at toddler group got bumped to this week (below is the small persons from today. Recognise the dungaree fabric, Heather? and I have plenty left for other ideas that are brewing) and we decorated simple felt eye patches instead. Alex made one for herself and one for Daddy. After all what use is it being a pirate if you can't take your Daddy with you on the high seas?
Mr Bogert is off galavanting in Kansas City with his boss and another colleague. They're at a user group (I think) from yesterday until Sunday. He's actually visiting Hallmark cards today. That I would find interesting. I'm hoping he gives me a full run down and not the usual "nothing much happened" or "I can't really remember".
While he's away I'm having a good old fashioned girly sleepover (based in my living room!) with a bunch of old school friends. Really looking forward to a good old catch up. Now we're all "grown ups" (or pretending to be) we don't have as much free time to see each other what with kids, jobs, houses, and partners, and we're all a bit more scattered. I think this will be the first time this particular group of friends have all been in the same place at the same time for over a year. Also, big point of the night is we're getting chinese take away. Yummy! I love chinese food.
They'll all just be leaving as Mr Bogert returns, then we're off to see Mickey the next day! Can anybody say busy?
