The parrots had a disco

We put some music on full blast and they danced. Although Lill’s favourite tune is actually The Stripper. I was watching Steptoe and Son and it came on and she went wild. I have eventually finished the leather costumes for all the Roman puppets. I have been sewing them in waiting rooms around local hospitals for months now and not one person has ever commented! My in-laws actually cut up their old settee and came round with a massive wad of metre square leather pieces. I then had to cut out the pattern pieces, punch holes and cut strips of leather laces to sew them with. The leather was so thick I had to use a tab rug hook to bind them together. They are decorated with beads and metal buttons and a pupil gave me a tip to make authentic-looking bronze – the inside of tomato puree tubes …. yep, really! Dodge has been enjoying the warm weather and charging round the field. The harps have responded with a few broken strings 😦 – well I musn’t be too upset – 2 strings in a collection of 33 harps – that’s over 3,000 strings in all.
