Who Am I ?

On Monday I pretend to be
A pirate who’s been wrecked at sea.

On Tuesday I am spiderman
Shooting webs to foil their plan.

On Wednesday I am Doctor Who
Telling Daleks what to do.

On Thursday I go undercover
Detecting clues about my brother.

On Friday with my Wizard’s wand
I pull a Princess from a pond.

On Saturday I am a knight
Wounded by a dragon fight.

On Sunday I am very good
All dressed in green as Robin Hood.

And then I can’t think who to be
And so I think I’ll just be me.


So the kids have gone off to school as Puss in Boots and Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third – for World Book Week. I love their inventiveness when it comes to dressing up.

We don’t have many actual costumes but we do have a fantastic dressing up box. I love the fact that smallest son’s tail was a furry snake and he had a panama hat and his friend’s sparkly wellies and yet none of this detracted from his utter confidence that he was indeed the great and wonderful Puss. They are always dressed up as something – I can’t think where they get it.

And then I found this photo of me…
