World Book Day


So this week, it was world book day, a day where it is customary for many schools to allow their children to come dressed up as their favourite book character. World book day occurs every year and yet this year, my mum forgot!!


This year world book day was celebrated on a Thursday, which meant that mum had to leave for work early and it was up to me to get Tilly up and get her to school.


Our Thursday started as any other Thursday would. Tilly waking up at the crack of dawn to watch her kindle and me shouting abuse at my alarm clock hoping for more time in bed!!!


So up I got and made Tilly some breakfast before getting myself dressed. However I was interrupted by a frantic phone call from mum saying she had forgotten it was world book day and hadn't sorted out a costume for Tilly.


So I had to spend 20 minuets going through Tilly's dressing up clothes to find something suitable. Tilly used to love dressing up and would go out in dressing up clothes more often then not, however in recent years she has lost interest in dressing up and so a lot of her costume no longer fitted her.


Tilly then told me that as she has a book about Doctor Who, she wanted to go as the Doctor. I felt very proud of my little geek apprentice however we had no costume.


In the end we were able to find a white princess dress we brought at Disneyland about 3 years ago and I told her she was being the snow queen (the dress was actually the wedding dress of princess Arial and had small shell shaped sequins on!).


On the walk to school however Tilly did get a little too into character and tried to throw ice at me!!


I am proud that I was able to get Tilly up and in fancy dress all in 20 minuets but in the future I will be reading the newsletters to keep up to date with upcoming events and not relying on my mum!!
