Driving to work this morning felt very wintery. The skies got darker and darker as we headed down into Hartlepool. A very wet day meant my class of three years olds were confined to barracks and a bit stir crazy. We made alien cakes with liquorice tentacles, painted our space models and went moon walking. Guess what this week's theme is!
We have a training day tomorrow and then a week's holiday followed by another training day on Halloween.
Surprise package from my SP9 pal today - Halloween goodies. Very nice, thank you. :) Love the purple and orange spiders. The beads are perfect as I was looking only last night at some patterns for gloves with beading on the cuffs and the backs of the hands. I might have a go at them over half term.
Thank you for this package. It cheered me up no end!
I also got this spoon pin from a friend who also has fibromyalgia.
I imagine most people have heard the spoons theory by now, but just in case go to But You Don't Look Sick. There are many days when I would appreciate another spoon.
I heard that my International Scarf Exchange scarf arrived safely with Laura(go visit to see her wonderful pumpkin striped socks). I wouldn't wish freezing winters on anyone, but I do hope she maybe gets one or two days when it's cold enough to wear it in Alabama.
I'm off to vegetate in front of the TV and finish my second Socks that Rock sock.
