At last. The skies are blue and the sun is pouring in the front of the house making shadows and creating bright patterns on the walls. It seems to be a long time since I have seen these colours in the hall. And an added bonus was that the window cleaner was scraping layers of grime off the windows when I returned from the school drop-off. Hooray!
The tulips from my M-i-L on Mothering Sunday (an unexpected treat) are not my usual colour choice but they are really making the dark, north facing kitchen a little bit brighter and more cheery.
I love your Hama bead creations Smaller, but please will you finish this one off before I accidentally destroy it?
And this fella? Recognise him*?** Small was one of the lucky three in his class to be chosen to take part in an Aardman workshop at his school to make a model and then use it in an animation. Wowsers!! Ironically, the art-dodging Small was more pleased that he got to skip country dancing and Friday afternoon achievement assembly which is "... so epically*** boring." When I can prise out where the animation can be seen I will post it. Unless it is truly awful and then I won't.
Other things making me happy are that there are only two weeks til we break up for the Easter hols, I keep seeing spotted woodpeckers in the garden though whether they are greater or lesser I cannot fathom, the fridge is full and I know what everyone is eating for supper tonight.
All in all a good Thursday.
In other news, I need to take something to work next week for the PSHE inset after the hols. It has to be something which is me. Not a photo, can't be chocolate or cake as it will be sitting on the top of a cupboard in a classroom over the break, so that also discounts the boots I wear everyday and my cosy knitwear. Any suggestions? And I am not taking a broomstick which Small wittily proposed this morning...
