Of her own bat my Fiona decided it was time to teacher Amanda how to do needlepoint. She found an old Dora plastic canvas she hadn't done and they were off.
Amanda is of to a wonderful start and in her second session managed to thread her own needle and undo a mistake she'd made.
I always think that first recognising a mistake and then undo it is the start to understanding any new task.
As I speak Fiona is helping Amanda with her piano practise, it does have to be said that is trying her patience some what.
Last night we took them to see our local ice hockey team and Fiona was lucky enough to get a rise on the Zamboni. She said she felt like a celebrity.
