Book Day

This week at school it has been book week.  I haven't a clue what they are doing, maybe reading a lot?  Visiting the library, who knows?  All I know is tomorrow the children have been asked to go into school dressed as their favourite book character.

After speaking to Charlie about this he first wanted to go as the Gruffallo (nope, not attempting to make that!), then he wanted to go as a pirate (yeah, that famous book on pirates?), then I suggested he went as Charlie from Charlie & Lola.

I know, I know easy cop out!  But I know my son, and any outfit he goes in wearing, he will be taking it off and loosing in half a minute.  So I thought a t-shirt and jeans combo, he will comfortable and would wear it all day.  He agreed.

So this afternoon.  I cut the sleeves off a plain white t-shirt, and the sleeves of a red long-sleeved t-shirt and sewed them together.

Then out of green felt I cut the letters for Charlie's name and sewed them on. Job Done!  I am quite proud of the results.

Only problem is.... Charlie refused to put it on, saying he wants to go as Buzz Lightyear or he's not going to school!

What to do? 

He will be going in last years halloween outfit at this rate! 

(Frankensteins monster! - well at least it's a book character!).


  1. I love the idea of dressing as your favourite book character. I think I would go as Miss Marple. Mmm where can I find some thick brown tights?...

  2. ooh ace! Flora was Lola for her book day back in Feb we should get them together!

  3. lol love that idea! Maybe you should tell your son that Buzz is dressing as Charlie this week due to book week so he had best go as a charlie buzz looka-likey :-)
