What a load of old coins!
A very rewarding day today. First a hopefully worthwhile chat with someone to help one of my best friends, then in the afternoon i ventured back into school as a parent helper. A whole new class of 4/5 year olds to meet. Painting was the order of the day today – I must remember to take my apron next week! There was a lovely moment when one of the children who generally doesn’t say a word in the classroom actually managed to tell me their name, and also which animal they were going to paint. For me that’s the kind of thing that makes it all worthwhile – worth swapping an office job for any day of the week. I still couldn’t be a teacher though.
Extra SP’s after school today too, much laughter as usual. Our SP is sooo tired in the evenings. there are so many after school activities that she is trying that she is pretty much wiped out by bedtime – a nice peaceful evening for the grown ups though!
loads of these things around the house – I might test the theory that they don’t like conkers, given that we have so many of the little brown things in our collection.
I’m aware that I haven’t been writing much on my blog lately – by the time I have uploaded my pics to the laptop, then onto the dedicated 365 site, then onto Tumblr if it’s to do with college, I just can’t be bothered to come on here and write somemore. I am still busy taking photos though…..
A day off today. I spent the day in Birmingham with a good friend. We had a lovely time, shopping, wine, lunch, champagne, all topped off with a chinese takeaway and wine in front of Strictly!
I took this on my phone as obviously didn’t take my camera shopping!!
My feet ached by bedtime!
Wow!!! 200 days, 200 photos. Another milestone in my 365 project.
Lovely day today, soup making this morning, which was then enjoyed with a lovely friend at lunchtime, along with a visit from my favourite little fish feeder. Always brings a smile to my face.
A spot of invoicing this afternoon (or rather catching up on invoices) and then chance to catch my breath while the SP and one of her BFFs played nicely after school.
Rumour has it there’s a take-away on the cards for the grown ups dinner this evening. Hubby has again been working super hard all week – very proud of him. One man, taking on the used car market single-handedly!
My photo kit (some of it), in a bag. That is all. Wednesday night is college night. Really enjoyed it tonight – we were in the dark room developing a roll of film we shot the week before. I have never done that before so it was really interesting. I even managed to get a couple of images from the film, which I didn’t think I had done as I found the manual film camera challenging to say the least.
I was actually trying to get some decent pics of the water dripping from the outdoor tap but failed miserably. This spider was hanging around in his web just by the tap so he made just as good a subject.
Rushing through the blogs again this week playing catch up. This is just a close up of the top of my tripod. Part of this week’s college homework is to prove understanding of camera accessories….
