Year 6 – Back To School For Ella

Year 6

back to school year 6

Ella’s starting back to school today in year 6. This means it’s her last year at this school. I can’t believe she’ll be going to secondary school next year! She’s growing up far too fast for my liking!

She was excited to be going back to school this morning. Kaycee made a fuss of her by getting up early and making her a cooked breakfast for when she woke up!
She also did her hair for her, made her lunch and made sure she didn’t forget anything!

Kaycee’s not back at school until Thursday so she had plenty of time to do it all today. Ella asked Kaycee if she could make her lunch every day. Her answer was definitely not! She has to leave much earlier than Ella when she’s at school and she only just has time to get herself sorted!

It was lovely seeing them getting on nicely this morning, for a change!

 

 

Miniature Craft Kits – My New Hobby

Miniature Craft Kits

 

A few weeks ago I browsing Facebook when I saw a link to some Box Theatre Kits on Amazon.
I’d never heard of them but I fell in love with them. They’re little tins with miniature scenes inside.
I headed over to Amazon and ordered 3 different designs!
Ant said I should have ordered 1 first to see if I liked doing them but I’m an impulse buyer! While waiting for them to arrive (they came from China so took a while) I saw some more on eBay that were less than half the price they were on Amazon.

I ordered 3 more and kept my fingers crossed that I was going to enjoy doing them!

Thankfully I love doing them, as does Kaycee! Ella wanted to do one so I said we could do one together. She did really well but she hasn’t really got the patience like Kaycee has and she said she’s not interested in doing anymore!

Kaycee did 2 of the kits. She did Forest Rhapsody
