Go to school dressed as..

... one of the wise men's gifts. AKA a family discussion with references to 3 films and a song by the Smiths...

DD: I don't want to go as Frankenstein

Me: OK

DD: Or Myrrh

Me: OK

DD: What's Myrrh anyway?

Me: It's a type of balm (Life of Brian fans in the house say *yeah*)

DD: Like lip balm?

BS: I love the smell of lip balm in the morning (Apocalypse Now fans in the house say *yeah*)

DD: I'm going to go as gold

Me: OK

And the song in my head? Altogether now:

"Ask me I won't say no, how could I?"

(But when you get to the bit about the bomb use the word *balm* instead... )

I do specifically check your blog now & then in case I've missed a "go to school dressed as (x)" day.

The scrap books are going to be a bit different - "That's me doing the egg & spoon race, me as a sheep in the Nativity play, & this is my prize certificate for being Best Myrrh in School..." ;)

A highlight? Thanks xxx

And thanks for the comments hildegard and nige.

Sometimes I think we may be just verging on the edge of blasphemy......

And sometimes I think it would be really great if there was a *go to school dressed in the school uniform that cost so much, and whilst there, at least learn how to spell day*. But alas, it remains a fantasy......

I'm *so* glad my kids don't go tpo that school! They would love it, but I'd be so stressed, I am utterly useless at anything arts and crafty.

Little H had a great costume for Children in Need day, but only thanks to my super talented friend.

She looks great, I hope she enjoys those days as much as I enjoy your pics

Brilliant! I don't remember as many 'Go to school dressed as .....' days when mine were at primary school ..... I would have loved it if they had :)

Twiglet says:

Thanks all.

I'm also useless at anything arts and crafts and all of these strange requests from the school have me moaning and cursing and muttering about not being a bleedin' Blue Peter presenter. If you look at most of outfits they are mainly shop bought like the cat mask, the devil gear and the badger mask. This one was fairly easy though as I was lucky enough to have a head sized cardboard box. BS wrapped it though and made it into a hat. The tag was my idea......

Brilliant! Who needs spelling anyway when you've got predictive texting. Going to school dressed as x is really book!

Dazzle_Dust: There you are irreverent child... I forgot to tell you just now that on top of going to school looking like Christ knows what and spending all last night blowing chunks, we find out today that she has indeed been selected to be Juliet's nurse in next year's BIG production. It's going to take more than a cardboard box and a woodland mask to transform her for that play I fear.

First night telegrams and flowers all round round!

Thank you Spiderbaby. It is the year 6 disco next Tuesday. Once again it will be go to school dressed as a terrifying cross between a goth princess and something from the Thriller video time..

Spiderbaby says:

I can't help feeling I did school all wrong. This seems much more fun :)

Is it the full length Romeo and Juliet???

Twiglet says:

I'm really not sure until she brings the script home. I'm a bit weirded out by the choice as it is, what with the themes of angst, suicide and underage sex. Gotta love Shakespeare tho' ain't ya?

I am a tad worried about mass suicides after the show, specially as your in a prime spot for cults aller Midsomer Murders - which is how I describe where you live to everyone!

Twiglet says:

Midsomer? Isn't that a place like Morse's Oxford where someone gets murdered every three and a half minutes?

BS always describes this place as a cross between Midsomer and the Wicker man!

Thanks for all the comments and Sprocket I can hear you giggling from here....
