Wishes granted at the throw of a dice
Today was the annual garden party at the nearby girls school. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, from our outside deck we see the school chapel which daughter E refers to as a Castle! We estimated that if we sent our girls from year 7-12 it would be the equivalent of a small house based on 2007 fees.
At their secondhand stall I purchased a bit of fun in the form of this game. I loved the retro feel and for $1 I thought why not. How times have changed when it was acceptable to be able to wish to be: a ballerina/model/teacher/nurse or air stewardess.
I absolutely love the clothes - how cool would it be to have a wardrobe so beautifully tailored and the events to wear them.
Ah to be a Princess Ballerina, so much more romantic then a BRATZ doll which I think are really style lacking.
I hope that whoever takes the time to read my blog is granted their wish for work/life and play!
And on the playful side here is a picture of my very yellow coconut ice made especially for Es Preschool Funday tomorrow.
I was under a bit of pressure to complete a slice or cake. Had put my name down for sticky date puddings prior to remembering that my oven door won't close. Went into freakout/flipout mode, what am I going to do. Couldn't make anything with nuts due to ALLERGIES, needed to make something stovetop. Good old Stephanie Alexander to the rescue. E was trying to cook with me, a recipe for a great big gigantic mess, especially when using icing sugar. Needless to say got confused and wondered why the mixture was turning yellow, then noticed I had used the yellow colouring instead of red oh well still tasted yummy. Turned it round by highlighting the fact that it was YELLOW CLASS Coconut Ice. E attends a Preschool where there are 4 classes, red, blue, yellow and green. Hopefully yellow will be the new pink and all will be sold tomorrow.
