Teacher’s pet or super keen kids

Teachers pets and eager to please - Bubbablue and me

Considering I didn’t ever really think I’d want to have children, I think we’ve had a pretty easy ride of it so far.  Making the decision to try for a baby was a good one and it’s worked out well.  Easy pregnancy, easy ‘labour’ (most calm unplanned c section ever), easy baby and so far, not too much trouble since then. While N has been a pretty easy going child so far, he does have selective hearing, never does the… Continue Reading “Teacher’s pet or super keen kids”

Living Arrows 2017 week 25 – bubbles

Living Arrows 2017 week 25- escaping bubbles

This weekend has been sooooo hot.  I’m not good in hot weather, so apart from nipping to the supermarket, we hung around at home. N went out on the farm but after lunch had to have a break while the OH went back out. I suggested we get out the paddling pool as the lodgers were around. They live in our converted garage, and the outside tap is in their garden. So we had to ask to borrow the tap.… Continue Reading “Living Arrows 2017 week 25 – bubbles”

School Days – phonics screening test

watching television

Another week, another school days post. And unbelievably we’re racing towards the end of the school year with only 5 weeks to go. This week was a tad stressful for me because I’d been asked to come in to speak to the head, but had no clue what for. So I’d had 5 days of stewing about it.  It turned out to just be questioning if I had any issues after a bit of a moan had got back to… Continue Reading “School Days – phonics screening test”

Project 365 2017 week 24

ready to go on the quadbike

We’re rapidly approaching midsummer and halfway through this year’s Project 365. And unbelievably only a few weeks left of year 1 at school.  Here’s this week’s photos. On Sunday, N was out on the farm as usual, but came back in the afternoon to have a ride on his quad bike, along with his cousin. I’m pleased to see the helmet’s making more of an appearance. On Monday N came back from tennis (hence the oversized school PE shorts), and… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 24”

Living Arrows – post tennis play

Living Arrows 2017 week 24 post tennis park break

This week’s living arrows shot was taken after tennis.  They’d had a good session, N had been partnered with a friend from school who also doesn’t spend the lesson mucking around like most of the other boys, so he was happy they were doing the drills properly. But afterwards, I have to get him out without him running off to the playground next to the tennis courts. The week I failed and he was off straight after being released from… Continue Reading “Living Arrows – post tennis play”

School days – Learner of the week

Thoughtful boy

The first week back after half term and it’s been full pelt. N’s been staying up later than normal so we’ve had less school based conversations before bed. He’s mostly had a lot of questions about the older children’s school trip where they’ve been away for the week. Learner of the week and VIP As usual, the reason for N’s VIP sticker this week was a bit of a mystery.  He was awarded it by the PGCE teacher in his… Continue Reading “School days – Learner of the week”

Project 365 2017 week 23

Lego card sorting out

It’s week 23 of Project 365.  Despite it being summer the weather has been so up and down, I’ve not been out much during the week to take photos.  Apart from flowers, I’m not finding much inspiration. The whole instagram engagement thing has put me off a bit – just not feeling like taking photos, and then not having any I want to share. Plus of course, when engagement drops to half, it feels like there’s no point sharing them.… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 23”
