Back To Ballet

Emily's ballet lessons started up again today - albeit at a very inconvenient time, namely 12:45 to 2:15 which, being neither morning nor afternoon does tend to bodge up the day in terms of getting much else done!

Still, it's the exam class now, and it's a vast improvement on the screamy, noisy, overcrowded chaos that last year's class was. There's only about 12 children in the class now, and they all behaved very grown up and set about learning some "proper" ballet positions and movements, much to Emily's satisfaction :-))

Back at home it's a mad scramble to get "things" done. The list of "things" requiring doing seems to just get longer and longer, no matter how many "things" we manage to cross off it. Hrrrmph. It's BBC deadline day; we have masses of new stock to get listed both in the shop and/or on ebay; we have masses of junk to get rid of (sorry, that should read "lots of lovely, as new items to offer for absolute bargain prices on ebay"). Not much of any of which is actually happening. Jon is working wonders with sales of our second hand books on ebay, though, which as been on his to-do list for a very, very long time, but is now proving well worth the effort. :-)

Couple of piccies, firstly of The Ballerina herself, enjoying a cuddle with Big Cat Merlin and taking her nose out of her book just long enough to have her picture taken.....


And of the two fluffballs, whose manic behaviour continues unabated. They both went missing about an hour ago. Found them playing on the front stairs just next to the front door. How they managed to get there, through the Fort Knox precautions we have taken, remains a mystery....

Oooh - what's your eBay ID? :D I likes books, I do.

Just commented on Hazel's blog - Myf and I are going to see Laura's Star in Doncaster on Oct 19 as part of the school film weekt thing. I was wondering if you would like to come along with us - my little two will be in preschool, and we could take the three 6 year olds to see it. :)

I want a kitten (wail and stamping foot!)

Oh and Kris definetely does like books (in fact that might be a tad of an understatement).
