Dressing up

My mum made a nun's habit for me. I used to dress up and pretend to teach school, usually to a class of dolls. A friend of mine also had a nun's habit. We frequently dressed up and walked around O'Connor. One weekend Wanda and I visited St Joseph's convent dressed up as nuns. I remember ringing the door bell and having afternoon tea with the nuns.
