Hello lovely people,
it's Friday so you know what that means,
time to recall the good things
- people, an event, a funny comment etc -
that have made the week better.
My cold has finally gone;
it hung around for a while,
but it is finally gone.
Unfortunately, DH Grant picked it up
and we all know what a man with a cold is like,
This little video clip has been making me laugh
Naughty Benton, a chocolate labrador, has
run off and is chasing red deer in Richmond Park.
But it is the so far anonymous owner
who is SO funny,
"Benton, Benton!!! Oh Jesus Christ.....Benton!!"
(I have been just like that man, many years ago chasing after Rosie Mae when
she decided she could round up sheep).
The clip has spawned loads of spoof videos
on YouTube -
28 weeks later
all featuring the man shouting, "Benton! Benton!!"
The school where I work survived an Ofsted inspection.
Being inspected by Ofsted is such a big deal for schools
and the teachers
(who are all absolutely brilliant)
and us Teaching Assistants were very stressed.
We're still awaiting the final rating
but I'm so pleased it's over.
I really enjoyed a day at
school this week when we dressed up
The children made such an effort with their clothes,
and I was a very scary school ma'am
called 'Miss Jones'.
The children told me they really liked me being
Miss Jones, and begged me to rap them over their
knuckles with a ruler as I had threatened to do!
We had a go at writing with a pen and ink,
played Victorian style games
and all the staff were very strict.
(The children looked so scared sometimes I had to
whisper to them that I was only acting!).
DH Grant rather liked me being strict Miss Jones too....... ;o)
I received my prize poster from Karen.
Now there's a story to this.....
A while ago I did a giveaway of a book of the
winner's choice from Amazon.
I did the draw, filming it (thankfully), and Karen won.
Karen is, quite coincidentally, my sister in law.
Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago.
Karen is having a giveaway.
The draw is done by my mother in law, Barbara.
What name did she draw out of the hat?
Now, what are the odds of that?!
Anyway, I got my poster
and I LOVE it!
I'll pop along to IKEA,
get a frame and it'll be
going somewhere in the dining room
(if I can find a spare patch of wall).
We all enjoyed Sunday lunch
at Grant's parents.
What a treat to have a lovely meal cooked for me,
and it was good to catch up with what everyone is up to.
We received such a sweet card and
kind letter from Susie Tu's lovely vet.
So that's it for this week.
There's probably a few more I could mention
but DS Luke and DH Grant
are looking at me with pained, or is it hungry, expressions.
Luke's had the week off work - he seems to have
hibernated for most of it - and we're going out
for a cooked breakfast, yum.
Luke's got an overnight party to go to
tonight (in the middle of a field somewhere)
and a posh 18th birthday party at a golf club
to go to tomorrow night.
He'll need another week off to recover!
I'll post this with Virginia,
our Rocking Friday Queen,
and visit the other Rockettes later.
Wishing everyone a safe and enjoyable weekend.
