Hope you all had a good weekend, here this weekend it was Summer fair in lil A's nursery for some fundraising. I really liked the whole idea of the fair,each class in the school has a stall and all the money raised goes towards the Schools fund. Nursery were asked to put a stall with kids toys/book and clothes which were donated by the parents and unlike back home, here buying used things is very common,so its a kind of recycling the toys,books and clothes ! The best part is I found one of his favourite toy from Disney cars movie in the stall and since I was volunteering in the stall before anyone could buy, I bought it for lil A and the smile on his face when he got it was priceless,it has been 3 days and till now he hasnt kept it anywhere...one pound well spent !!
