*make-up, wellies, cheesy grins*

I was trying to think of a witty and uplifting post title for a Sunday evening, but my brain appears to be working at about 2 miles an hour, somewhat slower than is usual, and therefore this is the best I can come up with (up with which I can come, if you're being pedantic!!) It does exactly what it says on the tin, certainly insofar as the photographs I'm about to post are concerned.

The girls were experimenting with a fairly revolting make-up set given to Freya for her birthday - everything in it is bright pink and impossible to remove, other than with a wire brush. I'm kidding, of course, but it did take a good old scrub with a flannel at bath time, and had been applied early this morning. Now, I know the application is pretty haphazard, but is it me, or does this child look way older than just 6??!!

In the second instalment of what may yet become a series, Anja and I are pleased to bring you this, a slight departure from an earlier theme, since the wellies are this time on the right feet:

Can you see how well her "girls" are doing in their blue pots??!!

And just because I love the expression on her fizzog, another photo from today, which again was spent mostly in the garden.

I am feeling ever-so-slightly 'Sunday evening', because I'm working four mornings this week, shock horror. I'm filling in at the Register Office, whilst my successor is on holiday, and since it's over two months since I last registered a birth or death, I'm feeling a teeny bit nervous. I'm sure I'll be fine once I'm there, but I'm beginning to wonder whether I should give it up altogether, because I don't want to make a mistake, and I think that becomes increasingly likely, the longer the gaps between registrations. I'll see how I feel at the end of this week.

Hope everyone out there has had a good/productive/enjoyable/stress-free* *you choose weekend, and wishing you all a great week ahead.
