Raspberry beret

It was the 4 year olds nativity last night, shortly after this cheese related incident.

Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus were in attendance along with, of course, a token donkey, several angels and some camels.

Also present were my daughters class dressed as French people complete with berets and stripy tops. Disappointingly, no further ‘string of onions’ stereotyping.

Another class wore traditional African dress, albeit made from Grandma’s curtains.

… and the well known Christmas classic that was being belted out in the school hall ….

Brown Girl in the Ring, as sung here by Boney M of course

Not Raspberry Beret by Prince then?

I don't know about you, but we're still suffering from PNPS (post nativity play syndrome)...

Also, included you in the best of the British Mummy bloggers list ... you may want to put your two pence into the debate...http://tinyurl.com/5ueo9t

We saw that donkey costumes are being recalled by Asda and were wondering why?

Grocer - No and not the type you find in a second hand store either. Am going to be humming that all day now.

Susanna - thanks very much! Will have a look at the debate.

Mary - Oh dear - my donkey costume is from Asda - but bought 3 years ago. I say mine ... I mean 'the children's' of course

I've seen you out in your donkey outfit before now...

Boney M! How wonderful. In O's nativity play the kids sang a version of Last Christmas - he would not believe me when I said I knew the song from my own Wham!-loving childhood.
