43 of 365


On February 12th, The Girl's class had a Roman Day as part of the topic they've been studying. They all dressed up in Roman clothes, they had Roman lessons, and they sampled Roman food. They had a fabulous time! :-)

Most of the girls wore stola-style outfits and had elaborately braided hair, pretty jewellery, and even wore make-up in a couple of cases.

Not The Girl.

The Girl went dressed as a centurion.

I completely forgot to take a photo of her before school, so here she is afterwards - laces untied, sock wrinkled, legs muddied...

That's my The Girl!

And here is yet another pic of some coffee. I do drink coffee almost every day, but I'm not sure that I've shown you my favourite coffee mug till now?


(In a borderline OCD way, I have different mugs for different beverages. This mug is just for coffee. I have others for tea, or for hot chocolate. If my first choice is in the dishwasher, I do have a couple of back-up, multi-purpose mugs which could contain any hot drink.... Just me?!)

Good for her! She looks absolutely adorable (at least from the waist down).

Looks like she had muddy fun!!
In our house you're lucky to find a clean mug...let alone have special ones.....apart from OH who has a giant guiness mug for tea...and nobody else touches it!!

Heather said...

hah no its not just you lol! My parents insist on having their correct mugs but here we just take any though I can get a bit peevish if anyone uses my fave new mug - it was given to ME for xmas !!
I love the shot of your daughters 'end of a long day' look of her lower limbs - bless her :)

I am the same when it comes to tea and coffee, I have tall latte glasses for my milky coffees, a mug for my tea and a special mug for regular coffee's!!

Elizabeth said...

I'm definitely the same with mugs though, since I don't like tea, I give inferior mugs to tea drinkers. It's not OCD it's people who don't that are strange! Sorry Heather. (I am the dishwasher, of course.)

The photo of The Girl is a priceless glimpse of childhood detail. Kudos!

And for the most part I only drink water, so no mugs for me. I've tried to like hot beverages, but my taste buds won't cooperate.

Love the picture of The Girl. :o)

Yes, I have my favorite cup for coffee - and it's the one I go for whenever it's clean and available!

OMGosh...Hereford United!!!! I was born & raised in Hereford...how small a world is that?!!! I have spent many a Saturday afternoon in theh 'Meadow End' cheering on the black & whites (& the bull!) Which leads me nicely to saying that I was a bit of a tomboy...till the hormones kicked in...so I love that 'the girl' chose to be a centurion! At age ten I used to fantasise about being an Apache warrior & my bike was my pony!!

Ruth said...

That's the best kind of photo!

Sian said...

Excellent choice of shoes! So much more suited to our weather than sandals! Looks like a fab costume:)

Love that photo of your DD lol!! As for the mugs, I do have "my" mugs for tea and coffee. I can drink tea, coffee, hot chocolate or whatever from most of them but my big Starbucks mug that I got at Christmas I only use for coffee - I don't know why, I just do.

Karen said...

LOVE that photo; much better than in the morning all fresh and clean.
