I’ve been badgering Daisy to write more blogs, and here’s her fantastic thoughts on the water puppet show in Hanoi (and her soppy father). Note the fronted adverbial that Mummy has had to teach her this week, despite not knowing what one was until she dragged her way through the national curriculum. Homeschooling has its moments…
We went to a water puppets show, and we saw fairies dancing in water. Before the fairies danced, the dragons were a total rush. They squirted fire and the peacocks squirted water. Puppets started to pick the rice slowly and plant it. Then the fishermen came and one put its basket on the other fisherman’s head. Then we asked for a wooden fairy but daddy said “NO!” So I cried and cried most of the night.
The next morning (when I had hardly slept), we went to the airport and daddy had bought the fairies and said “they followed me back”. The fairies now live with grandma and granddad till I get back.
