Finley’s reception class and the whole school were invited to go in dressed as their favourite book. Parents were asked in too, so of course I got in costume. Fin chose the beautifully illustrated Brambly Hedge series which we inherited from his Great Granny Finlayson.
We cobbled together a waistcoated cravat muse look for him and a blouse and long period skirt with flowery straw had mouse look for me. I had a lovely time joining in with the book day activities (despite being the only non-staff adult dressed up!) then went back home to finish putting up the poly tunnel.
It was only after the postman gave me a really odd look that I realised although i’d taken off my costume, I’d forgotten to wipe off my mousey face paint….
