One of the things I love most about being a mum is whipping up homemade costumes for B, just as my mum once did for me. For Christmas, I joined forces with Mr B to create a Knight's costume. Mr B created an ever so special hand painted wooden shield, and I sewed up a tabard. Yesterday, as the new Spring sunshine started to stream down on Bath, we took a walk up to Sham Castle with Knight accoutrements tucked in the backpack ready for a picnic feast and a battle. And we cooked up plans to return there in the summer and recreate the afternoon for a Knight themed party when B turns 4.
