I have six working days to get a wig/coloured hairspray/facepaint sorted out for bear for Comic Relief Day.
Bear has indicated that he would prefer face paint. That is fine with me on one level. On another level - I don't know how to paint his face! I am the person who can't draw stick figures. I cannot, absolutely cannot draw. I have the artistic ability of evil cat. Actually, I have less.
So he will be going in non uniform clothes which will at least spare his good uniform white shirts from getting covered in face paint. And I will have to work something out about face paint. Not only will I have to work out what to do with his face and practice how to do it, but I shall also have to paint his face first thing in the morning when I am not actually conscious before 10am. Sandwiches are done on autopilot.
And I can pay £1 for the privilege as a 'voluntary' donation.
