Slowly but Surely

The sun is finally out and I have got back to the treehouse.  It is the half term holiday and dad and I worked yesterday on the frame for the door.  It was really tricky and there was loads of measuring - now we have to keep our fingers crossed that is will open and close.  We then sorted out what wood we had left and how it would be best to use it - this took AGES. In order to do that we had to tidy up - yes, I said it, TIDY UP.  I am possibly the messiest person in my family so the idea  that there was loads of tidying up to do was not ideal.  It does look much better now and we found lots of tools we thought were lost so that great.

Here is what is looks like now

I will put wood above and to the sides of the opening and then I need to build the rest of the sides ready to fill in.  I hope we can do this at the weekend when dad is off work.   

I have been up to lots of cool things whilst it has been raining.  I have been to the Theatre where my Mum works to see a play called Not So Grimm Fairy Tales - it was soooo good and the actors were really funny. They sang a great song called 'We are the Brothers Grimm' and I can't stop singing it - I liked the way they told the stories, extra imaginative and has given me some good ideas for stories I could do, what a great job that must be. 

It was the town carnival near my house and my school had a float.  It was a Wild West theme and I went as a cowgirl like 'Kissin Kate Barlow' from Holes by Louis Sacher - another one of my favourite books.  It really rained at the end of the parade and we got wet through but it didn't matter because it was so funny.  I think I need a stock of spiced peaches for the treehouse like Stanley and Hector in the book, particularly if the door doesn'r open properly!!!
I'm off to find a recipe - YEEEEEEHAWWWW

Here is me dressed up as Kissin Kate - my mum says it looks like a wanted poster.
