A friend convinced me to roller-skate with her recently. Haven’t done *that* in more decades than I care to remember! It was rather confronting…
but I managed to stay upright for the entire session (almost 2 hours!) and I was immensely proud of myself for such an accomplishment. Perhaps it was the lucky orange laces?
Anyway, have a accomplish-ing week yourself, dear Reader!
I’d been saddened over the last couple of years at noticing human encroachment (ie litter and worse) at my favourite writing spot. I’d even given up going there… for months.
Imagine my surprise when this greeted me the other day:
Evidence of humanity’s more disgusting habits: gone!
I like it when things go well.
Have a beautiful week yourself, dear Reader!
I noticed at dawn the other day, that the edges of the cloud formation on the horizon mirrored the contours of the land. Check it out 🙂
I wonder if this happens all the time, and I’ve only just noticed? I’ll have to google it…
Anyway, have a notice-able week yourself, dear Reader!
September’s nearing her end… meaning that with October just around the corner, those roadworks that hold me up on a daily basis are nearly complete, yes?
Ummm, no. Last week’s roadside greeting:
Have a more time-ly week yourself, dear Reader!
I realised the other week that my Library has no puzzles.
Problem now solved.
What did you think of this one I bought for my High School students? (Kindly completed here by Mr10 with my help, so I could take this photo…)
Have a puzzle-solving week yourself, dear Reader!
Spring has well and truly sprung! Behold, my annual indicator:
And here’s wishing you a week full of new-life yourself, dear Reader!
Check out what Miss14 did to Miss11 at last week’s school fete. And Miss11 paid for the privilege!
In other news, does anyone know how to get blue hair dye out of blonde hair?
Have a learning-full week yourself, dear Reader 🙂
I’m loving my job. The learning curve is the perfect gradient, and not only is my mind constantly active, but every Friday afternoon is spent out in the sun with a dozen or so girls, learning to play golf.
It’s fun; such a change from the rest of the week.
And I get paid to do it!
Here’s wishing you a variety-filled week yourself, dear Reader 🙂
And… it’s Book Week! Biggest week of my work-year, now I’m Teacher Librarian and not Head of Middle School.
At my new school, the Year 12s pick the theme for themselves and the staff. This year: minions.
Staff were allocated roles from the Despicable Me movies. Together with the Head of Senior School, we could both be the evil character, Dr Nefario.
Never one to share nicely with others, and noticing a second baddie unallocated, I graciously stepped aside and let my colleague wear the white lab coat and black lab gloves, and chose slinky long gloves and black high heels for myself.
Scarlett Overkill – here I come!
Wish me luck. (We all know how weak my ankles are…!)
And have a dressed-up-week yourself, dear Reader!
I’ve blogged already this year about Ark. I haven’t played it since that post, but Miss14 has – and is ecstatic that she’s now tamed a griffin (several hours worth of work) and it’s in her own game, not one on a multi-player server.
Because the first one she’d tamed (note: seven HOURS of not-completing-homework and not-helping-around-the-house) had been on a multi-player server – and it had been stolen while she slept. The thief flew him around, and killed him. Big drama. Sigh.
But she’s happy now. And she’s started making videos, and that makes her happy too.
And this makes me happy.
[Lucky she’s up-to-date with her homework and the housework isn’t too onerous, is all I can say!]
Have a ‘happy’ week yourself, dear Reader!
