    The people who invented the “hair rat” could have thought up a more lady-like name for it ;) I use a sock to get a nice puffy topknot–one of my husband’s dress socks, actually…I just chopped of the toe, rolled it into a donut shape and it works like magic! (And, since it was a dress sock, he’s never even missed it!)

    Have just bought my son a very fetching candy floss striped bow tie for his part in the royal procession in Alice In Wonderland at school. I thought someone in a procession would look dapper, so he has that, a waistcoat with a flower on in and a top hat (along with a shirt and trousers in case you were wondering!)

    I really fancy the “I have no regrets” print. I wonder if I can get one that says “joie de vivre’er.” (:
