Buzzy Bee!

I am slightly scared of bees but these were so cute and really furry! Plus they were totally absorbed in their task so paid no mind to me at all. I would never try to film a wasp! Now those are scary winged beasts!

Princess Gift for Vivian!

I sent off a little gift package to Vivian and decided on a princess theme! I really wanted to send her a doll as most little girls love them. I know I did! I wasn't sure if a plastic doll would get damaged in the post but then I saw a plush one which should withstand bending. I also sent a colouring book, crayons, tiny sticker books, and the sweetest tiny plastic tea set. It really was teeny tiny! 

I got to send her a letter too along with the package! This time I wrote a little about things that I liked to do when I was young. Mostly themed around princesses, teddy bears, and tea parties! I can hardly wait to get a letter from Vivian! 

Equally exciting news was that the Plant-a-Book on line shop reopened at the beginning of August! I got myself so muddled up trying to decide which items Vivian would need the most. There are quite a few products on there from uniforms and books, to blankets and socks. I decided to buy her a basic uniform set, a school bag, and a wash set. I think new shoes might be the next order. Or a blanket. Or an umbrella.Or a set of fiction books. Or a non-school dress. See! There are so many things to choose from!

A Little Update Post.

Finally back on the internet! My laptop died so I had no internet access and I really missed blogging! Glad to be back to it now. I will try not to go crazy and post every idea that has been swirling around in my mind! 

My first letter from Loani has arrived so I will post about that soon. I need to take a photograph of the letter as she drew an adorable flower picture! 

The weather here has been good overall. Really humid the past couple of days though! The garden appreciates the bit of rain that we have had and I have appreciated the sunshine and blue skies as I walk to and from work. Even though I walk through town to get to work, I find it really quite calming. Nice to be out in the fresh air! 

I have had my hair cut too! Probably not something that most would get excited by but proper haircuts are a rarity for me after an unfortunate incident where I ended up with short layers that looked like a mullet! It put me off letting anyone cut my hair for a long while. I had heard a lot of good reports about this particular hairdresser so decided to just go for it! I wanted layers but the fringe was a spur of the moment decision. I like it though!

This Sunday is the annual Afternoon Tea Party which I am really looking forward to! I have a pretty dress and am planning on curling my hair and generally having fun being as feminine as possible. The hostesses always do a wonderful job so I am looking forward to a fun afternoon with delicious cakes and even a raffle! 

I hope that you are all enjoying the Summer!
