Deirdre and Ollie had organised colouring books and pencils at the children's places and everyone commented on how Sadie put all her might into the colouring, the pencils were stubs in no time. A few days later and just when I was compiling a strewing exercise a parcel came in the post for Sadie and Holly which overshadowed my efforts: An Everything's Rosie sticker book and....drumroll...a book of Hello Kitty posters and watercolours. My girls love all things Hello Kitty, they like Everything's Rosie too but you do not want to stand between them and an item of Hello Kitty merchandise.
To work! My own gathering of things had included watercolours since they'd never used them. The
The first attempts with the watercolours were a bit frustrating as the painters made holes in the paper but they soon got the hang of it. Happiness is a wonderful surprise by post!.....or for Colm's wife, Lindsay, I'm sure it's having her husband back and a bit of order restored to her life.
