Rory's school celebrated Book Week this week, and on Monday, all of the children (plus teachers) dressed up as a character from a book.
Of course Rory wanted to go as Thomas.
Since I knew I wouldn't be able to drive for a fair while after surgery, I needed to get a head start on it. I told Rory, "No changing your mind."
He didn't win a prize, but had a fantastic day. Thomas is looking a bit worse for wear though.
Later that afternoon, I made a sad discovery. Marilyn, my White Leghorn hen, was dead behind the perch. It seems that she must have died during the previous night and fallen off her perch.
Of course, Rory had to get on the bus the next morning and announce loudly, "Marilyn fell off her perch and broke her neck."
I'm not sure what the bus driver thought....
