Christmas Shopping With Mummy

With two weeks to go until Christmas Mummy thought it was about time she got her arse in gear and hit the shops. Stupidly, she thought it would be a good idea to take me with her. Haha, I think we all know how wrong she was. She thought she’d been clever.  She thought she’d timed the trip to town to coincide with my nap so I’d sleep in the buggy. Not a chance. The ten minute power nap in the car was all I needed, I was ready to hit the shops. To lull Mummy into a false sense…

The A to Z of Me

When the lovely Katie who blogs at Hurrah for Gin tagged me in her A to Z of me post I was quite excited at the prospect. Katie is a fab blogger who always makes me laugh with her posts about family life with her 2 gorgeous boys. This isn’t as easy as it sounds, but here’s a little bit about me.

My Teaching Magic Moments

I feel at the moment I’m pretty negative most of the time about what I do and sometimes I need to take a step back and remember why I do this job. I do it because I am lucky enough to work with a bloody fantastic group of kids, who make me laugh on a daily basis and when I’m feeling shit will always put a smile on my face. A few of my fave teaching moments: 1. On a residential trip with year 7 we had to clear the tables and chairs at the end of quiz night ready…
