365 for 2014

I started this blog to record just 1 year - I'm into my fourth year now, not great photography but a record for myself none the less!

My lunchtime view on Thursday...

Imagine turquoise sea, golden sand and a beach bar. Life at 'The End Of The World'
Wifi enabled at last!

Holiday time

To the docks with TG- The Matthew docking in Bristol

Fridge juxtaposition!

A sociable day

Lunch with TG and tea with an old work mate not seen for 2 years- it all makes me happy!

It's been a vile day weather wise and going to the hairdresser was a pleasure. The lovely girl that cuts my hair has the same name as my daughter- I could be her mother - she's fantastic, I like her a lot.

Mums dog Jazzy- put to sleep yesterday at 10.30am. This is a photo of her a few weeks ago. Poor mum is devistated

Some things turn out better than expected!

Our school performance was amazing tonight, I took TG and we both loved it...but I was expecting good things!

However some tests came through surprisingly quickly and the result was MUCH better than expected! (Still awaiting others but this is a welcome sight)

Is it nearly Christmas?!

Back in November I bought Small Sprog a much wanted Gingerbread House kit. We bought all the sweets to decorate it with and everything was ready to roll for Christmas. However, come the festive season, he didn't really fancy constructing it so it has sat abandoned in the food cupboard ever since.

Today, when I arrived home after a manic day at work, he announced that he'd like to make it 'now'. Luckily I didn't need to do very much but I am still wondering why, on a Thursday in mid May, he should get the urge to feel Christmassy?!

Last AS photoshoot for TG. While she was faffing I took this one below-it was such a beautiful afternoon and the air was heavy with the scent of wild parsley

Art coursework

It's that time of year again-lots of coursework deadlines and TG still working on preliminaries! Pretty preliminaries though...

This amazing bag was made by a year 8 boy (90% his own work) that I have supported through thick and thin, since October last year. It's been a hard road for us both but we are nearly there. He made this in his DT lessons and the fact that he has chosen to surprise me with it, I feel, is massive. This represents my job satisfaction way above expectations. I feel grateful and honoured.

Love in the mist

Self seeded from last year. I can't believe it's May 1st already, the garden is in full swing ( shame I'm not - 3rd type of antibiotics started today- fed up with feeling under the weather!)
