Ess and I had a lovely time on Sunday creating a little brightness to add to her life for her school Sports Day on Friday. Some bright yellow ribbony hairclips. We were inspired by some lovely little brooches at Blij als Mij.
I must say, it was very refreshing creating with the lovely bright sunny yellow, the colour of her sports team. We are both usually not very fond of yellow. Pink is almost always the first colour of choice.
Ess loves them and wanted to wear them to school today. She then asked when Sports Day was...again. Upon realising there was no way she could wear them today or very soon, she asked if little Eee could wear them simply so she could see how cute and pretty they looked in little Eee's hair. Isn't that just so sweet, just so generous.
And a little more cause for some celebration...we have seen less of the sunny yellow circle in the sky over the last couple of days as showers have fallen from cool grey skies. Nothing to get too excited or write home about, but there is certainly some moisture in the air.
However, by Sports Day on Friday the temperature will have risen again to some 30ºC, the sun will be shining and everyone will be having a grand time - assuming we are all over our illnesses that is! Today it is my turn to have a mild case of the lurgies.
I am certain, however, that little Ess will be somewhat reminiscent of that bright and joyful, little yellow butterfly described by William Wordsworth.
