Ballet success.....

How could I have forgotten!? It has been on our minds for weeks, the practising, the lessons (early in the morning!), trying to find the right ballet outfit as it can not be any old outfit oh no. Mummy's sleepless nights wondering how she was going to get her daughters bob hair into a 'ballet dancer's Bun'! The possibility that said daughter would back out at the last minute but no, worries were not justified and Sophie's very first ballet exam went very well on Saturday 13th December.
Sorry no actual pictures as we are not allowed to take any. Sophie really looked the part and so sweet. If there were not other people there I dare say a tear would have appeared, it was one of those 'Slushy Mummy Moments'.

Well done my little dancer, you went in with your little group and dance teacher and came back out 20 minutes later with a smile and a chocolate Father Christmas. They all passed, it was the Pre-primary level.

Could be the first exam of many.

Just wanted to share that as I perhaps do not write a great deal about my life outside of craft.

Congratulations Sophie!
Always found the hair for ballet a problem, solved with a can of hairspray and a thin comb, all came a bit unstuck when in a nervous moment 10 minutes before an exam I sprayed, the can leaked and the leotard was wet with hairspray. We fixed it in time but I certainly learnt my lesson to leave well alone!!!
