The boys went to a dress up event today - they chose to be James Bond and Scooby Doo. My big guy made a very dashing James Bond - he has never actually seen a James Bond movie, I might add. Our kids have always loved dressing up, we have one of those huge old-fashioned hotel laundry baskets full of outfits and accessories. And I have to confess that I love making an effort with their costumes (I once made a Yugioh outfit complete with a multicoloured felt headpiece), although today's outfits were a cinch. I found the tuxedo suit on eBay, and Scooby came from our local costume shop, Mr Showtime (can you believe Daylesford has a fancy dress shop but there's nowhere in town to buy school socks? That's the kind of place it is).
It's been raining heavily all morning over here, I'm hoping it will stop for the school holidays, as we have a few outings planned. Hope it's warm and dry where you are!x
Postscript: James Bond won the contest for best fancy dress, yay!!
