World Book Day face paint

March 2014

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….
