Yayyyyyyyyyy ! When they eventually get up, I can send the children outside. Apart from the essential washing and tidying, I intend to do nothing to today..well, maybe scrap. I had some new stamps from Inkadinkado arrive this week and I keep looking at them longingly as I haven't even had chance to get them out of the packet yet. I am still working with the October ScrapaGoGo kit. The sneaky peeks above are a few more from the September kit :)

I went to the theater last night with some friends from work to see "Dorian Grey" the ballet. The dancing was amazing! I have never been to a ballet before and wasn't expecting to enjoy it so much. Obviously , you can see from the images above that it was very pleasing to the eye LOL. It was also a brilliant, very fast moving, shocking, moving story. I vaguely remember watching the film ( in black and white) when i was very young with mum one Sunday afternoon..much of the story would have "passed me by" then. If you get the chance, I can highly recommend it.
I am so glad it is Friday. This week has been so hectic, i am looking forward to a rest :)

I am off to see "A picture of Dorian Grey" at Norwich tomorrow night ( it is a ballet) ..Just hope i last to the weekend :)
I took a load of sizzix dies and scrap paper into Yr 11 Textile this week.They are doing their course work in big A3 folders and the pages need to be decorated in the themes that they have chosen to make their design in. Its been fun showing them different things to do and getting them excited about what they are doing.
Back soon xx

Thanks for you kind comments. Its over 18 years since our Beautiful Cavell died from Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. Watching your child die is THE hardest thing in the world to do and the pain never goes away. I see young men his age and wonder what would have become of him, would he be like Dex and into every sport going , he certainly loved American Football, or be like me a readaholic.
The Fab Norwich Devils old boys are reforming as I type to train and then play a match next week against the current team. I asked Dex if he wanted to train but he said he would probably break every bone in his body ! He is hoping to take Daniel to watch them next weekend though.
As you may imagine, I have no scrapping to show you what so ever. I recivec my Fab ScrapaGoGo kit for October yesterday and am busy planning Lo's etc..It takes me ages to get my ideas together and I often do a couple of trial runs to experiment with bits and pieces.
Work is good, I have loads of Tec groups to support inc. Textiles, ICT, DT and Home Ec, so i am very happy.
Off to the ballet on Thursday to see "A picture of Dorian Grey" ..I remember watching the film with mum YEARS ago. I have been told that there are naked dancers!!! I shall report back LOL.
Must say TOOT TOOT to HSBC bank. I had big problems on Thursday night when Dex and I went out for our weekly meal and shopping. I put my card in the local cash machine and it was eaten :( We had to travel to the next town to get money out of Nats account so we could go...very stressful.
When I got home , I phoned the bank ( 9.30pm)and reported the card "eaten". They cancelled it and my new one arrived this morning.....nice NOT to moan for a change.
Have a great weekend xx

I have already started to go to bed a lot earlier..at least this week is a short one :)
I don't usually submit work to magazine or competitions. Doing work for ScrapaGoGo is enough But Couldn't resist the comp at The craft Emporium. The challenge was to use Daisy Bucket papers to win some of the latest papers and stickers. I didn't expect to hear again but was really pleased to be a runner up as I still get some of those scrummy papers as a prize :) The LO above is the one I submitted.
They seem to have got on OK although Dan just grunts most of the time now.
My timetable was changed three times yesterday alone!! We are still a little short staffed ATM in our dept so things will change quite a bit over the next few weeks. I was a little concerned that i wasn't down to support in any Tec groups..I shall get withdrawal symptoms if I don't have a saw in my hand at least once a week! LOL The pupil i support the most is yr 10 now and doing business studies..that will be interesting :) Ohh and i am down to support in art which will be great :)
Yesterday we just had year 7 and 13 in so it was mostly meetings etc ..Looking forward to the first proper day back.
