Storylines 2012

Princess MaryHelen Fairy












Last Sunday, Mary and I volunteered at the Wellington Storylines Family Day. We were looking after the competition zone, collecting all the fabulous creative writing and illustration entries. In the spirit of the festival, we donned costumes and spent the day as Princess Mary and Fairy Helen.

Part of our job was to direct people to activities upstairs. We think we did a good job.
