Would you let your 11 year old watch Sherlock?

I prefer teaching older kids.  The vast majority of my timetable is made up of GCSE and A level classes and that suits me just fine, but I do teach a Year 7 class twice a week.  Whilst I love their enthusiasm and innocence at this age, I find the “Miss, I’ve lost my pen” and “Miss, I’ve come to the end of my page, should I turn over?” just a tad irritating. However, since having Little O I do find it fascinating when they talk about what they are allowed to do at this age, and what they’re not…

Love The Little Things #1

One of the blogs I’ve recently found and really enjoyed reading is butwhymummywhy. In 2013 Morgana hosted a linky called “This Week I Love” which focused on the weeks highlights. With a slight revamp for the New Year, I promised myself this would become one of my regular link-ups.

If you’ve had a look at the weather outside today, this was what we had expected on our big day. Windy, rainy and cold! So we were amazed when, whilst I was getting ready, great big fat snowflakes started to fall. Having an emotional moment when the first flakes started to fall! It was beautiful! But with it came a few minor problems. When bridesmaid shopping…

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…
