Do something funny for money...

So this is me - first time I've shown my face!

Comic Relief is here again... and this year Red Nose Day is all about doing something funny for money. Imagine my pride when Little decided at the last minute to enter himself in the do something funny for money talent competition at school playing guitar (he's only been learning for a few months). He freestyled, "I made it up as I went along Mummy." For a gentle one who can be painfully shy this was a big deal and he came second which was a real result. I can only imagine what it sounded like........ The boys are dressed in red today as am I. Small and I have sprayed our hair red. Little is wearing a red bandana, being far too cool to spray his hair red. I popped back to school just before lunch and the atmosphere was great. Penny sculptures were made earlier in the week and they've raised money by paying to wear mufti. Love it!

Hi Kristin, I did seem to be the only parent who had entered into the spirit of things...

Hi Rosie, I was really proud but more for him actually entering than anything else.

Hi Tanna, You should see the real one underneath!! I love my boys as you know and when they do something out of their comfort zone I have a surge of pride.

Hi Karin, They surprise me alright! Thankfully mostly in a good way. ;)

Hi Katie, Picking my own nose was a real treat!

Thank you very much for your comments.
