A Year in Pictures - Week 12

I have barely taken any photos this week - I think this endless winter is just getting me down and we haven't even had snow again here. I am banking on a hard winter making it into a good summer so I don't have to emigrate to sunnier climes.

Yesterday was the highlight of the week - for Little Miss Star anyway - she became a World War 2 evacuee for the day and it sounds like they had a great time. All the kids in her class dressed up, as did the teachers. They were evacuated from the school hall train station (where us parents waved them off) to the community room where they did maths in old money, practised handwriting (properly for once!), played with toys (?), made potato scones (declared delicious by Miss S) and after the end of the war had been announced on the wireless they had a VE Day party. They were finally returned to their parents after 6 long hours away! Here is my little evacuee with suitcase, label and gas mask having had 'the best day at school ever!'

  1. The editing of the photo is in perfect keeping to the era. I had to double check that it wasn't one from World War 2
