|First day en pointe|
Laura has recently achieved a long-held dream
and gone en pointe,
spending much time at home in her pointe shoes
She bought herself a practice tutu on ebay
and it arrived in the holidays,
adding her to ballet-related happiness.
Here she tries the little-known and under-utilised
ironing en pointe routine.
I guess that's one way of getting her
to do her chores ...

And since we three girls are now
all studying ballet
perhaps we could all frock up
and glissade, jete and pas de chat
our way through the housework?
(Of course, I'd have to pick up my ballet
game a bit to manage that ...
and the girls would have to pick up
their housework game ...)
