Happy Valentines Day


Hope you are all loved and being spoilt by your other halves... or even getting surprise annonymous cards ;) Went on to Google this morning, and love love love this Valentine image... the teacher in me still saves all the different Google designs, in preparation for if I ever get my studens to enter the doodle for Google competition again.

Last night was a really good giggle. It was a little crop as only a handful of people went, but with Paul and Jen there, it was a good one. I even got a LO started, faffed with and finished... then packed away with time left to flick though a magazine... how good am I! I used papers from the December Scarlet Lime kit, I cannot believe how much you get with this kit, and how verstaile it is... loving Scarlet Lime:) The photos are of Harry Bear in his first Halloween costume. He didn't go anywhere, we didn't have a party, but of course he still had to have a costume! He didn't think much to it though and kept pulling the frilly bit off to shove in his mouth! Jems has got her Feb kit already so it shouldn't be too much longer for us UK girls to wait. I feel like it has been an age since I have had new stash... I haven't bought online since before Christmas as I am saving for the Harrogate show on the 23rd. I am planning to have a big spend on patterend papers and alphas... might even get me some lick and sticks ;)

So on to today's HS:MS prompt of 'diligence'. I'm afraid it is another cheat from me... I was looking through all the photos stored on my lappy, and found some taken of my last year 7 group I taught. They were a difficult all boy group, and it took the best part of a year to crack them... but by the summer term we had an understanding with each other, and they were pretty well behaved. This photo shows them working on their designs for a Keith Haring 3D model that they went on to make. It's when I see photos like this that I really think I want to go back to work... I do miss teaching, and will go back one day... I just need to remember that for each piccie of the kids working, I could have taken 20 of them being disruptive and confrontational... there you go, I am more than happy to be a sahm...LOL!!!

We are off to the pictures again later... this time to see Sweeney Todd... and yes, I know itis a musical, but hey it has Johnny depp in, and a girl has to have some eye candy on a day like today:)
