Most of the Bryn Derw kids are in boxes, hibernating whilst the builders deal with the ancient foundations of our house.
Tosca, a Zwergnase Junior, has been one of the few selected to travel around with Mum and me, so I can sew some new clothes for her. For some reason, she just doesn't want to put the clothes she came in back on again. You would think that she'd be excited at being one of the few to be chosen for a 4 - 6 week trip, wouldn't you?
I'm standing outside the bathroom door as she's a big girl now and doesn't need help getting dressed. Every time I ask her if she's ready to set off for the ferry though, the only answers I get are :-
I DON'T WANT TO WEAR THESE!
YOU WOULDN'T GO TRAVELLING IN THESE! WHAT IF I GET RUN OVER BY A CAR AND HAVE TO BE TAKEN TO HOSPITAL?!
I really can't imagine what the problem is, can you?
( In all honesty, I can see her point. Why on earth would a company make lovely, modern top clothes for their dolls, but put them in hideous, old-fashioned undies like my Granny wore? Even Tosca's brother, Tommy, has been given the same, far from fetching garment. Come on Zwergnase, you can do better by your dolls than this!)
