Tuesday

Brrrr - it's chilly outside.  I had to pop out to the shed to put some things in the freezer that I should have done last night but forgot.  I had actually gone out to get things out of the freezer, found they weren't there so came back to look in the fridge.  Lo and behold, there they were, so out I went again to deposit them in chilly preservation!  All but the one portion I needed, of course!  And it felt cold . . . very!

The weather forecast for today is atrocious!  Rain, rain and more rain.  It's my day for playground duty, morning and afternoon but, if they are correct, that ain't going to happen.  Neither, unfortunately, is outdoor games after play this morning.  I'm sure my littlies will be delighted with the maths lesson they will have instead.  Not!
And I will take my car today!

Yesterday - well, yesterday was a normal day apart from me not having my class a.m.  I got loads done including a whole class-worth of story writing marked.  That can take absolutely ages and ages so I was glad to cross it off the list.  I also got the tickets for The Merry Widow (we're going on Friday) given out so that's another thing crossed off the list.

In the afternoon . . . well, to backtrack, when I arrived at school in the morning there was a bit of a pong in my bay because some of the runner beans we planted had gone mouldy.  Sad, but a useful lesson in 'yes, plants need water but too much is Not A Good Thing'.  So in the afternoon half the class replanted their runner bean seeds, the other half looking smugly on as theirs had germinated and, in most cases, were sending up exciting looking stems with seed leaves in evidence!.

Ah, how disappointing life can be at times . . .  :-)

It is beautifully sunny here at the moment but I bet your terrible is heading this way. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for games . . .

Just spent a wonderful 4 day weekend in East Anglia. Beautiful area, visited and walked around several nature reserves and we were very fortunate with the weather, only got slightly wet once! Was very grateful for my woolly hat, scarf and gloves though!

East Anglia is lovely in many parts but it can get a very biting wind. I'm glad the weather stayed fine for you! Where abouts did you go?

Fingringhoe/Minsmere/Weeting Heath/Redgrave and Lopham Fen and Hanningfield Reservoir - walked for miles .... :)

Joy said...

Hanningfield is quite close to here. It's lovely, I gather. I've only been once and that was ages ago - I must go again at some point!

Apart from the reservoir there is a beautiful Bluebell Wood in full bloom now, the scent from the native bluebells is heavenly ...

And the colour is just incredible, isn't it? You don't see a blue anywhere else quite like it.
