Well, Mr Saucepan head and Horrid Henry were far easier costumes to muster together than this year’s request.. Was it even Horrid Henry? I remember the ‘Alien in Underpants’ costume that was just brilliant; the same costume Willy discarded 2 minutes before time to leave to school .. and the only thing we could think of on the spot, was Saucepan Head.
This year, with a little more time, I spent a fun half hour rummaging for just the right things in the charity shops close by. I tea died sheets! Something I haven’t done before… Had a party with flour on the balcony. And spent 3 hours stitching so that my fingers are raw and questioning what on earth I was thinking!
Why didn’t I just buy costumes off Amazon like the Big Man suggested?
Why?? And now I have another 2 hours of sewing to go….but secretly quite happy to do so and secretly quite pleased with the results!
The countdown for World Book Day is on…
