Favourite Foto Friday #41

I hope thi works because I have been trying ages. FFF for this week is Furry Friends. I didn't think I had any of Brenda with a stuffed toy on here, until I went over to Christina's blog and saw her girls, wehn I remembered Brendas birthday trip to Buddy Bear. She chose a cat called "Sarah" who has now become quite the traveller as she goes away everytime Brenda does, and will probably even go to Mauritius at the end of September!

This is what has been happening this week. Brenda had a pirate day at school, and they had to dress up as pirates and bring pirate food!

And here is a picture from the Hockey Tournament tonight. Spent 3 hours watching Hockey in the dark this evening. Luckily it wasnt cold at all!

Edited to add: Pirate food for Brenda was:
Sea Water - Blue energade
SKulls - bought sweets in the shape of skulls
Sword - banana
treasure - chocolate coins
and Brendas contribution (she made it herself)
Rotten Bread - white bread with splodges of green food colouring
Sharks blood and gizzards - mayonaise mixed with ketchup (she actually had no idea what gizzards were, but said it sounded good)
and turtle liver - sliced hotdog sausages.
Let me tell you, that sandwich looked terrible, but she ate it, and even used it in the oral she had to do!

And for those of you who may have to do something like this in the future, some other suggestions from the teachers were -
fishermans loaf - anything rectangular eg. sausage roll, banana loaf etc
pirate fingers - sausages, finger biscuits
cannon balls - anything round eg. meatballs
maggots - sour worms
One childs mother even sent in a full treasure chest cake!
They had an amazing time.
