I love walking into the kids' rooms and seeing things like this - so unexpected that you have to look twice and wonder - what were they thinking?! Sophie has tied her lego horse reins to a ribbon that is in turn attached to a paper lantern she decorated at school last week. I can't wait to ask her about it when she gets home! It's on a par with the sign we found stating 'no smoking on easter' (Joe and I don't smoke - well not for 13 years we haven't!) and the used toilet roll holder with a note on it: 'do not touch' then, in scribbly writing underneath, 'spider inside'. With a lack of punctuation it's one of those statements that could go either way - were we not to touch the toilet roll at all? Or just the spider inside?!
I look forward to hearing more about the horse on the ribbon on the lantern this afternoon... will keep you posted!
EDITED TO ADD:
It turns out the horse is there so Sophie has something to look at if she can't get to sleep - kind of like a mobile above a cot I suppose!
