Read Happy News! YAY!
I'll try that again!
We could try and post some of the good news from around us. Good news for me is that my ladies who I teach English are giving me more money for teaching them without asking, which is nice when the cost of fuel to get me there has gone up.
Went into school today, and the young teacher wasn't there - she's getting married on Saturday! The headmaster took the class, and asked the children if they had noticed anything about their teacher, and whether they thought she was excited.
One child said that she noticed Miss was singing a lot.
Another that Miss was showing them how to ring bells.
One said that she has started wearing skirts!
Funny things that they notice!
Anyway, then we set about making the biggest card - each child (30 of 'em) had to design their own card using any medium they wished, and each card would be put on another BIG card.
We had painting in one corner; glitter in another part of the class - all sorts of hearts and wedding cakes, churches, champagne bottles, mini brides. Amazingly creative materials - one used sparkly pipe cleaners to bend into the couples new name!
My sort of day.
Lovely! I think I missed out on finger painting when I was a child. I certainly don't remember doing it. One day soon I'm going to treat myself to a very messy afternoon with some paints, fingers and possibly potatoes. And glitter, of course. Thanks for the prompt, Brightspark.
Gone crazy. Back soon.
That was what I loved most about having the kids. I didn't spend a lot of time playing with them, pretty much left them to it but craft times - oh we had fun. Could be why one has gone onto do car designing, one did really well at A level art courses even though he hadn't done them at GCSE and the oldest just likes to paint.
Good news today is our apartment seems to be finally warming through as we have had plenty of heat over the last few days. Could do with a bouncing around with joy icon for that but I guess this will do for the time being
Bet your relieved Janet
Planned coffee morning with friend/neighbour last Wednesday, when her hubby rang to say she was poorly and in bed with a very bad cold or flu.
I took round some elderberry cordial on Thursday on my way to school.
She rang me yesterday (Friday), and her opening line was:
"You are a star! I've told loads of people about your magic potion!" She said she even woke up on Friday morning and actually wanted to get up - she was really pleased with how she felt (I suppose it could have been coincidence, but I'd like to think that it is a wonder drink!).
She asked that when we go elderberry picking, can she come along too !
One satisfied customer.
I do actually, Danuta, it makes the slow-going of the elderberry processing worthwhile.
Twice this winter, I thought a cold was about to start - you know the symptoms, lots of sneezing, and a constant runny nose. Each time I had two mugs of hot water, laced with elderberry cordial, and, touch wood, no cold or flu the following day.
It's difficult to deny the value of the elderberry!
