I can't believe there is only a week of school left. I'm not ready!! I feel like there is still so much I need to do and not enough time to do it in. I also feel like I have loads to blog about, but my thoughts are all a bit jumbled up and over the place, so forgive me if this seems like a bit of a mish mash!
I received this lovely, seasidey piece of fabric and the card from Julia of Hand Knitted Things as a thank you for arranging the seaside swap! Julia, that was so kind of you, thank you!
I have also managed to get myself pretty much sorted with my own swap stuff, and am now ready to post! Here are a couple of sneaky peaks:
I hope that doesn't give too much away! Don't forget, the deadline is 31st July and the Flickr group is here.
On Friday evening we went with some friends to the Tonbridge music festival. It's held every year on the lawn in front of Tonbridge Castle, but this is the first time we've been. We took a picnic and had a fab time!
The main acts are usually tribute bands, and we saw the Bandit Beatles and Abba Magic. The Abba band were definitely loads better than the Beatles (their fake voices were awful!) but there was a really good atmosphere, especially once it got dark. At the end there was a fireworks display, so I got to try out the fireworks setting on my camera!
The deadline for the first Wordplay challenge is tomorrow - and I haven't done it. I feel bad, falling at the first hurdle as it were, but the idea that I had just didn't pan out as I'd hoped, (the word was "sugar") and my mind was just a complete blank for any other ideas. Plus with all the other end-of-term stuff going on, something had to give and this was it. I'm definitely planning to try again with the next word though, so I'll keep you posted on that.
This morning I was helping in school with some of the other mums, preparing a load of Spanish food for Year 6 to have a little fiesta, to celebrate the end of their Spanish lessons. We made 3 kinds of paella, Spanish omelette, bread & chorizo and some kind of potato dish that I forget the name of (fried potato with a spicy tomato sauce on it). We dished it all up to the kids and they all seemed to really enjoy it (most of them that is, William, typically, found it all too spicy!). When I left at about 11.20 they were all up and dancing with their Spanish teacher and having a wonderful time!
Right, must go, loads to do! Have a great week, everyone!
