It’s funny because as my children get older, I see the similarities in the things they hope to get for birthdays and Christmas!! The other day we went to a friend’s house and their daughter had all kinds of treasures in her room - make-up, necklaces, jewellery boxes (all 6-year-old style!!)… and Ophelia was sooooooo inspired!!!!
It took me back to Christmas when I was 7/8 and I DESPERATELY wanted a Girls World!! I loved it – LOVED it!! It was the one where you could pull the middle section of hair up and it would 'grow' (even I at such a tender age wasn’t that impressed with the subsequent unevenness of the hair cut!!).
Anyway, suffice to say, I coloured it every colour under the sun and spent HOURS making her up! I’ve loved make-up for what seems like forever and I get the feeling Ophelia is going to follow suit!!
So Santa, beware!! Jewellery boxes, make-up and the like is going to be on her list!!!!
… and make-up will ALWAYS be on mine!! Just today for example, I've added these four to my list…
…. now where was I? Oh yes - back to thinking about packing!! We’re off to Canada in less than 24 hours and I haven’t even started!
Will try to blog a bit from there, but can’t promise - otherwise let’s catch up when I get back
