I have made gift tags. I started cards ages ago but don't like most of them so have given up and bought some RSPCA ones. Tags are much easier and quicker. These involved my glue gun and glitter so all the better!
We went for a walk in the park on Sunday. Paddington Bear was there.
I sat on a tree to drink coffee. This is one of the Spanish Chestnut trees in Greenwich park. Isn't it impressive? It made a very comfy seat too. We watched a mad little Jack Russell running around every tree chasing squirrels. There were also lots of the green parakeets chatting away.Anne's husband which he very generously gave us when we visited in the summer. Isn't it lovely? He has a big collection of very well organised driftwood, with which he makes the trees. The tiny tree is from Tesco and is already glittered. It is keeping well. In front of the tree is the ugly Nativity. They are from the Oxfam shop in Rochester some time this year and I couldn't resist. They are papier mache and very lightweight. Lily keeps lying up here so they are in more of a regimented line than I put them in as she lies against them and pushes them back.
Bear Hunt at The Albany in Deptford. It was nice of them to take me. The teacher was in, so technically they didn't have to. We had a very pleasant walk there and back, and the show was great. It was puppets and four actors/singers/musicians. The puppets were the kind where you can see the actor operating it, sometimes two of them as they needed extra hands to do the feet. They were very expressive and with fairly simple props and stage sets it was very well done.
