Thought I’d just take a look back at my entry around this time last year and wasn’t in the least bit surprised to see that we were praying for good weather. Two reasons which are the same every year….Rose Fair and the school trip! Tomorrow is Rose Fair in town where we have a huge parade of floats decorated with a theme (this year, Famous Books). Our float will have fairytales on – Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Snow White. We’ve made what looks like a massive open book to go at the end and then the charactersÂ and props (children and staff) will be kind of tumbling out of it. But we need good weather! The forecast is not good :(Â Next Thursday we have our annual school trip and it’s even more important that we have good weather for that. It’s to a farm park and rain = mud, not a pleasant thing when it involves 60 children!!
This week has been as busy it always is at this time of year. Wednesday saw me welcoming my new class for the morning, so that when they start for real in September they have an idea of what to expect. First thoughts on the class are ‘tricky’! Lots of boys who I think will need some winning round. Definitely going to have to take a different approach to the one I’ve taken this year with my little gems. We’ll see!
Have also been busy organising something that will be happening midway through August.Â We’re renting a beautiful and idyllic cottage in the Highlands and as Dave used to live there and has three sons living there we thought it would be an ideal place to get married without any fuss. So that’s what we’re doing. The ceremony is booked and all we have to do is be there on time and ‘Carrie and Big’ (if you’re not a Sex and the City fan you won’t have a clue what I’m talking about!) style we’ll be grabbing a couple of people off the street to be witnesses. More on this as and when it happens 🙂 Meanwhile here’s a photo of where it will take place (an old prison!!).
