 Watched this DVD at the weekend - very funny!

 We ALL ( yes ALL) went to Southwold on Tuesday. It was a beautiful day.

 We sat in the coffee shop on the pier.

 Walked from the beach into Town and back.

 Popped into a pub for a drink on the way home.

 Very pretty it was too.
Southwold survived ( although i did scare a pupil from school ;))

I had done loads of tidying and laundry - even spent two hours ironing yesterday. But today I read this book- yes the whole book! It was easy to read and a sweet story.

Tomorrow I have to dye Megs hair :(

Summer Holdays

Have now begun :)
We have said goodbye to all the staff leaving and retiring. 
I went to work today for the last time till September 3rd. Just to catch up on paper work and tidy up before the painter comes back to finish what he started at Easter.It was a nice day, especially as I was able to go in late, leave early and actually eat lunch at a table! There were only a few of us in so we all took picnic type food and shared a lovely lunch. I made Key lime pie.
The Summer hols look busy already and I am not even going away!
Tomorrow we are off to the beach for the day.
I am going to be saving £25 a week taking Natalie to her workshop twice a week instead of paying for a taxi- so that's Mondays and Wednesdays sorted.
I shall be re doing Dan's room - I did Megan's last year, so it is definitely his turn, especially as he still has trains on the wall ( the poor boy is 18!!). It needs to be completely re done and has that horrible anaglypta wallpaper on it - so that will be fun!
Next Tuesday I am taking Natalie to visit a friend in Kenninghall - a SEN teacher who has just retired and has rescue ponies. She has invited lots of us over for the day.
I have a few friends to catch up with and a meal or two out planned.
I also hope to sort out all the bags of clothes we no longer need, paint the hallway wash the living room curtains, catch up on all the laundry etc , etc.
I have a list as long as your arm and I doubt I will get that much done :)
I AM going to be making cards though ;)

Right a VERY late tea I think .

Quick Catch up in pictures

This was so funny.

 Definitely one of my Favs now - LOVED this film! ( am also reading this on my kindle)


 Funny and you can dip in and out - good job as I am also reading The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel as well.


 Well I cooked these yesterday. Trying to eat more salad too.


 Reminds me of Steph so only listening to a few at the moment , finding it hard to listen to very much without crying .

Going out:
 Silly Season - 7 members of staff leaving for various reasons + end of term meals/parties. Three more this week . term finishes on 23rd July ( we can work from home if we want on that day  ) .

Watching (on TV)

 Wallander started last Sunday - if I can stay awake , I'll watch tonight.

 Once upon a time - Love this little bit of escapism (also on Sunday nights) 

Desperately Missing Steph. 
I do hear her sometimes giving me her opinion on things in my head .

Till Next Time

Year 13 Prom

 I can't believe my beautiful niece didn't mind having her photo taken with us!
And how short am i with flat shoes!!!

 Aren't they lovely? Another great venue Caister Hall Hotel nr Norwich.

 Our Table, minus Deb and I ( off taking photos) 

Awful Photo of me ( can't ever shut up!!) with two of my "babies" they started in yr 7 when I started as a TA six years ago. They came back as guests and it was lovely to see them.

Loads of staff moving on or retiring this year so no time to take it easy yet .
