Hey look - it's Friday! I've actually managed to get my Rocking friday post out on the right day which is really quite an achievement. OK, here's my little list of what's made me smile this week.....
A school trip to Hampton Court on Tuesday - the Year 5 and 6 children are learning about the Tudors (Henry 8th and all that stuff). It was jolly chilly and rather damp, but I love that place. One of the girls made us giggle. While wandering around she asked my friend and colleague, Lyndsey (her 1:1 Teaching Assistant), if we were going to see Henry 8th. Lyndsey patiently explained that he was dead, that he'd died many many years ago etc which the little girl accepted. Into the next room we go, only to be confronted by an actor dressed up as, and pretending to be, Henry. The little girl just looked at Lyndsey and her facial expression said it all - 'Told you so!'
(Another thing made me and Lyndsey giggle. The next day we went to Costas for our lunchtime coffee, and we were chatting to the lovely young Barista, Ali, who is foreign (not sure where he's from). We mentioned that we'd been to Hampton Court and that we'd taken the kids with us. He looked quite shocked, and expressed surprise that we'd been able to take the children. He then asked if the Judge gave permission. No, Ali, not that kind of court!!)
My back is still suffering from the coach journey, but it was worth it for a Grand Day Out.
Grant is always on my list, although he doesn't always get a mention. You know I love you, darling. Now could you please finish decorating the kitchen!!
Charity shops! Look at today's mixed bag of wonders, and all this for under a tenner!!
