No pics - my usual computer has broken (thanks to Warren who hit it, and it now makes strange whirring noises)
ANYWAY - my exciting news;
1:: Grace passed (with a merit) her Grade One Drum Exam, so Phil Collins and the one armed one from Def Leppard can move over - my little girl is going to be the new one to watch!!!!!
2:: Clothkits is coming back, and with it a new and updated Kitty doll. For those of you that don't know what Clothkits is/was, it was a sew your own company very, very popular in the 1970s and 80s that made quite easy kits for mums (or dads - but probably mums) to make their own clothes, kids clothes and accessories. My mum was mad for it and I was a clothkits kid. Kitty was my doll (a pre printed kit that you cut out, sewed and stuffed). She had all sorts of different clothes. But she died, after being washed too many times in Mum's twin tub washer with biological powder that rotted her away (Tiffany brown, my other favourite doll made by my nursey school teacher also died this way, and Piglet, my mostest favourite bear that looks a bit like Piglet from Winnie the Pooh made from an old war time utility blanket has had to be patched up over the years many many times)
So, roll on next year when I can get my eager paws on a new Kitty. I am just really hoping she isn't too trendy, that would kill me........PLEASE Mrs Clothkits, don't put her in a slogan t-shirt, or knee high boots, or flared jeans with a fancy trim. Her old patterned dress will do just fine, something with a few hippy swirls and birds on maybe, for old time's sake.
