I spent quite a lot of time last week with my niece, we had a great time. We made cookies,
read some of C. S. Lewis' The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, poured over an atlas, (one of her favourite past times), painted toenails and watched "Penelope",
Penelope which is a lovely fairytail type story in which the heroine rescues herself, so no relying on knights in shining armour! Yay for feminism. (is 10 to young for her first Germaine Greer Book?.. he he )
Kirsty will turn 10 on Thursday so there was much talk of parties, presents and sleep-overs!
I am fortunate to know the very talented Philippa of Felt at Home who is ingenious enough to have made me a tiny wee Kirsty, Highland dancing.
I know she'll be delighted with it, and although most everything she owns right now has a High School Musical or a Hannah Montana logo on it, It's nice to think this is one gift which will stand the test of time
