Ohhh yeah - the "Big Girls torch"

On the weekend I got to use Mum's Mini CC for the first time!!
I was a little scared at first - but then I realised that there was nothing more to be scared of than with the Hot Head. Mum helped a little bit when the glass went all wonky, but mostly she left me to it.

Yesterday I had another turn & Mum stayed away....completely. She said that there is only one way to learn, and that is by my mistakes.

This is one of them. I think I should have concentrated more on keeping the mandrel below the flame.

Wacky Sports Day

Today was wacky sports day at school. I dressed up! Would you believe that I found a pair of lime green tights in Mum's drawers? Who knew that my Mum was so adventurous...even if she does swear that she never wore them!

Topped by a pair of pink swim shorts and my big sisters t shirt and waistcoat - I thought I looked rather spiffy.....

I was not alone. I won the prize for the wackiest outfit....and Mum had laughed at me!!
I did a Duathalon dressed like this.
