To avoid the soup of Sydney's atmosphere today, the Child and I decided to stay indoors and get on with a few neccessary jobs, such as taking up the hems of new school uniforms required on Monday (me) and making a dress for a teddy bear (child).
This is Silver in her new dress. Silver was mine when I was a baby and was enthusiastically adopted by the Child before she could talk. So definitely a family favourite. The Child named her Silver as in my day she had been unimaginatively called Teddy and, I believe, left sartorially wanting.
We passed a good hour and a half around the table with our sewing machine, needles and threads. Very, very nice it was too.
