Day Five: Something a Bit Different

It’s the annual challenge to blog in a way different to how you normally blog. You may choose to create a podcast, or vlog, create a wordless post or write in verse.

I had a plan for today's post, it was going to be awesome (if I do say so myself!).  Unfortunately this plan relied rather heavily on the cooperation 13 month old so of course it was a total fail.  So please imagine that what follows is a video of a baby giving a great long speech in baby talk complete with hilarious gesturing and subtitles 'translating' what she is saying rather than just a transcript and a couple of photos.  Thank you.


"This is a Cassie Political Broadcast, brought to you by the Toys not Yarn Party."
"After taking a close look at Mummy's Blog this week we have concluded, without a doubt, that she has too much yarn.  We believe that is is taking up more than her allotted amount of space and certain parties (notably myself and the cats) are aggrieved that they are not allowed to play with it."
"We are therefore recommending , nay, insisting that she takes herself in hand and immediately embarks upon a Stashdown.  We propose that she commences the stashdown by knitting me a nice cotton shrug to go with my party dress that I will be wearing to a wedding in May, followed by a little vest too keep the chill off on summer evenings.  We believe that it would then be acceptable for her to knit herself something nice, preferably something large that uses a lot of yarn.  A cardigan perhaps?  We hope that Mummy will put our recommendations into practice forthwith and we expect her to document her achievements meticulously on her blog for our inspection.  Thank you."

Of course it would be a fail! They never do what we want when we want them to. With that said, it still works and she's still cute :)

Lack of bebe cooperation aside, this is a great idea and she is remarkably cute (see, I'm remarking on it!).

Cute, although I am not sure I can honestly agree with the policies of the toys not yarn party :) (the pattern suggestions are great but there is always space for yarn)

Perhaps a compromise can be reached with some toys made from yarn? :)
