Harry potter 3D - WOW!




I Did not want to see it in 3D, I remember those glasses we got in comics when I was MUCH younger, I could never get on with them. You know the cardboard ones with one green and one red lens?
Being short sighted and wearing glasses anyway, I just couldn't see with them properly. I also could never see those "Magic " pictures that people raged about in the early 90's.  



Anyway , when we arrived at the cinema yesterday we managed to catch a slightly earlier showing than we had arranged ( cost a fortune, but I don't go that often so didn't think that much , except I am glad I don't get many chances as I can't afford it!). When we went though to hand in the tickets we were given flipping great big specs to wear. Wow. Wow. I loved it and now need a 3D TV!! The big specs are also quite good for hiding the odd tear too ;)

An Upate

 As its been so long! End of term is always manic at school. As well as behaviour/pastoral care , i also co ordinate all the Eco projects in the school and look after ( badly) the Eco blog. here is one of our year 10 (11 soon!) pupils filling up the new pond in the wildlife garden. We also have a bigger pond project under way in another part of the school. This little pond will also have a waterfall when it is finished.

 I took a few photos for the school blog of some of the flowers and plants in the garden.
There were lots of people leaving this year for various reasons. Unfortunately there were also redundancies.
One of my favourite teachers left this year and we took her out for a "goodbye" meal at the local pub.

 I went to two proms ( and danced the night away at both !) The photo above is of some of the year 13 students. Their prom was at the FAB Caister hall Hotel in Norwich.

 It was our Sports day and MOST of it was sunny ( chucked it down in the afternoon). i managed to get out to see the beginning( I missed it last year). We had cheerleaders ( my niece is the one on the far left with black plimsolls ) and an opening ceremony with mascots, flags and dancers....not like sports day used to be!! It looked SO much more fun and there was something for EVERYONE to do.

The year 11 prom seemed like Ages ago now! 
Quite a few of the pupils are coming back for sixth form next year which is nice.

In other news, day four of my holiday, I have definitely caught up on sleep :D . Managed to catch up with most of the laundry, hired a skip for sorting out the VERY overgrown ( mostly stinging nettles) garden. 
Have got everything (except new carpet- still need to do that) for redecorating Megs room next week.
Am slowly getting though all paperwork for College (Meg and Dan ) trips away (Nats) and normal boring stuff. I have been making loads of cards ( see other Blog)
Ohh off to see Harry Potter with a friend from work this afternoon and running a small craft class tomorrow afternoon for another friend and her children.
Derek and Dan are off to Wales for a few days on Sunday , So I shall get stuck into decorating (and enjoy a little quite;))

A wonderful weekend

At Debden House this weekend. It went FAR too fast! This is the sight that greeted us when we arrived in the craft room. Even the water bottles were decorated beautifully. That big jar at the back is filled with gorgeous home made lemonade. There were adorable goody boxes and cupcakes to die for with an Oreo in the bottom of each one.

yummmmmmmmmm i can still taste them.

I am not going to talk about this beautiful cake.

Then on another beautifully decorated table were the sweets! This photograph doesn't do it any justice at all.
We had a rather large TV in the scrapping room so some stopped to watch rather noisey motor racing..they hid the remote so we couldn't mute it!

My work station...I did do SOME :)

Ann opening her Birthday Card

The fab Ginge

Sunday lunch..Nearly time to go home ..sob!

We had roast beef and then bread pud.
I can't believe I had to get my own brekki this morning AND wash up afterwards!

Better go unpack :(

If Anyone reads this...........

.........................my friend's son is almost at the end of a John O'Groates to Lands End bike trip with three friends. They are raising money for Macmillan Cancer Care. Most of us know someone who has needed their support at sometime or other. My own dear Sis has three at the moment. It's a great cause.
If you have a few spare £'s their giving page is HERE
And you can read about their journey HERE Its almost over, as I type they are resting in Weston- Super- Mare.

Meg's Prom

Wednesday was Prom night for Meg and her school friends. I am worn out from all the prep. It didn't help that I had to work till 3.30 and Meg needed to be at her friends house at 5.

I had to watch a you tube vid to see how to lace up the back of the dress.

THey had no idea that we had hired horses and a carriage to take them .

I LOVE this photo of Meg chatting to the girl . Their horses were used on lots of films including the new Pirates of the Caribbean film and she had met Johnny Depp. Meg was SO impressed!

She looked beautiful, even though she took off her lilac false nails and didn't get her hair up as we originally wanted to.

Driving behind i manage to get this shot( Derek was driving not me!)

Arrival at the Prom grounds.
Just before we left, a photo with Daniel.

She arrived home at midnight.
