So there I was sitting in the sunshine wondering what I really should be doing with my day when I heard a bit of huffing and puffing. Looking down I could see little glove mouse making his way through the forget me nots.
He wasn't humming his usual happy tune. In fact on closer inspection he was looking a bit cross.
After waxing lyrical about the wonderful sunny weather and enquiring as to whether he had yet spotted the new baby blackbird, I realised that he hadn't come to pass niceties.
He wanted to have a 'stern word'.
He reminded me that it had been some time since I had promised that I would give his new chums some faces.
Much as he liked Miss Mildred and Springtime Bunny they were spending more and more time in the school room and didn't want to listen to his mousey musings. Much as he had tried conversing with new chums he pointed out the the conversations were unsurprisingly one sided. He wanted to know what I was going to do about it and, more importantly, when?
I assured him that I hadn't been completely shirking as I had been busy stitching a zip in my skirt for Daisy's sewalong.
He was suitably unimpressed.
There was no excuse he argued and so, with the promise of some mousey help, I set to.
He fetched the needle, thread and scissors.
He helped me thread the needle using my big middle aged magnifier.
He got quite excited when he saw the first eye appear
(but then panicked when he saw what I was doing to the nose!)
Fears allayed, he watched with wonder as two little bunny faces appeared.
And before I knew it they'd ran off to the material basket to select some suitable fabric for little bunny clothes.
Sometimes a 'stern word' is all we need to get something done!
I'd like to remind any of you who don't already know that we'll be having a little bloggy get together soon. From the responses so far I think Shugborough is going to be the place to meet, and it will be some time during the Spring break. Currently I'm looking at Friday 30th May, but it's always easy for me to forget that not everybody has the same holidays as teachers, so if the Saturday suits better please let me know. There's quite a happy little gang of us so far, so please let me know if you'd like to join us - it should be fun! I'll post final details on Sunday evening.
Meanwhile I'll leave you with a picture of the cheeky little trio having fun with some currant leaves!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend wherever you are.
