And the detail in the right is me with my Minnie ears, swinging on a lamp post... the sticker says it all!
Lots of rocks this week (a few knocks too, but I refuse to dwell on them).
Great time at the good old British seaside eating chips, slurping lemon top ice creams, playing on slot machines (just the tuppenny shovers!) and walking on the promenade. Magic.
Drive up to a lovely local reservoir and a fab walk around it, including a walk on the damn where the water was rushing and powering through! Spectacular. Spotting barn conversion type properties for the dream that is Scrappyjen's Craft Studio (we will get there!)
Walk two in our series of local history walks with the lovely children I teach. The rain did not dampen their spirits or their enthusiasm!
Getting through the day... simply reaching the end and ticking all those things off.
Laughing out loud at the way our dining room is no longer a dining room but is turning into something quite different altogether!! I am in crafty heaven (lol).
Ohh what a day! DS2 really struggles terribly with anything academic. Despite having a teacher for a mummy, he has a tough time. He works soooo hard and is soooo resilient and just accepts that he finds things hard and tries to find a way to manage. i am sure he is dyslexic but we are awaiting results. Anyhoo, the little treasure needs a trophy cabinet! He was thrilled with all his football trophies already, so Thursday just made his little life! Get to the point, jennifer... he came out of the celebration of excellence ceremony at his school with
- his Year 4 graduation certificate (they all get one),
- a behaviour medal the size of a tea tray to hang around his neck (they only get those if they have not been in trouble at all throughout the year, so not everyone gets those),
- the Year 4 science achievement award (certificate, gold star badge, only one in the whole year group)
- and a 100 per cent attendance award (£5 gift voucher sponsored by the lovely people at Hays Travel and a certificate and a gold star badge, only six awarded in the whole of key stage two)
Lots of successes connected with Wear Crafts that I made happen... me... all by myself... with no help... just by being nice to people and being efficient... watch this space because I am excited and I can't wait to share!!!
And the weekend? Saturday looks good - DS2 is going to a party and all the families are really nice so that should be fun. Sunday looks good - mam and me are off to Summer Crafting at Doncaster to do some crafty shopping all being well (you know, floods, rain, thunder, lightening etc permitting). We get on really well as you can probably tell by the community scrapping that goes on on this blog! So, it will be lovely to have lunch and talk and mooch around and catch up.
Not even thinking about those knocks now - only the Rocks! Hope your week was great too and I can't wait to pop by to share your Rocks too. I officially love blogging. All you blog buddies are so positive and supportive. Thanks a bundle... that rocks too. jenx
