A few weeks ago, Ella told me she was saving up to buy a pillow pet she had seen advertised on tv. She could never quite remember the details, so she recorded a program with the pillow advertised in the ads, then paused the ad and wrote down all the details.
She then took two weeks to decide which pet to buy and we ordered it last week. Every day since then she has asked after school whether a parcel has arrived for her. I had strict instructions I was NOT to open it. I had been out all day today, so a card was left in the letterbox for us to collect a parcel from the post office. We stopped to collect it on the way to ballet, and she opened it just before going in to class.
