I met another blogger last week. ♥

It is Sandra from Quirkybooks.

Sorry the picture is rather dark, but it was at night in front of a theatre in London.

It was lovely to meet Sandra, we had a great chat over a meal and got to know each other. She is such a bubbly, enthusiastic, busy lady and “quirky” in a “surprising” way as her blog name says. She is doing some fantastic work, so do checkout her blog.

Let the nominees know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them.

My answers here:

1.If you could visit anywhere in the world for only one day, where would it be and why? I would go to a beach with palm trees lie in a hammock between 2 trees and sip a cocktail and relax all day! You get the picture….

palmtree

2.What is your favorite scent? I love Lavender

3. What is your best memory of Christmas? When I was a child we were allowed to decorate the tree, and put our own handmade decorations on it. I was always proud to do that.

4. Were you ever scared at Halloween? I do not celebrate Haloween, but last year I was scared as I was alone in a big house, and the doorbell rang, then someone knocked on the shutters, again and again…. I ignored everything. In the end it turned out to be the caring neighbour to see if I was alright.

5. Are you under, over or at five feet tall? I am 5 foot 11, like it tall! 🙂

6. How many languages do you speak? I learnt 3 but I speak really 2. English and German. French I learnt but it is terribly rusty.

7. Have you ever told a lie in order not to hurt anyone? I have when I was a child.

8. What would you do if on Christmas morning, instead of Santa coming down your chimney, it was me? I would give you a big hug (after dusting you off)….. and would give thanks for the best present! Then I would treat you to an English traditional Christmas dinner, which I might not burn…. we would have a wonderful time Terry!

9. When do you start buying or preparing for Christmas? I buy bits and bobs for Christmas all during the year, as sometimes you see something and you think straight away of a person who loves this. I love to buy and make presents and treat my friends. Often they are self made.

10. What is your custom for Thanksgiving? We don’t celebrate thanksgiving here in Europe, still I give thanks every morning, every day for the friends and things I have and my wonderful life.

thank you

To Lyn and Terry for nominating me for the lovely Awards, I really appreciate it!

Now my 10 questions for my nominations:

2. Which day of the week is your favourite and why?

3. What is your favourite fruit and veg?

4. If there was a planet/star which can be lived on apart from earth, would you go there to live and why?

5. What type of music is your favourite?

6. Have you had any encounters with animals/ insects you don’t like?

7. What makes you happy?

8. Imagine you are on a lovely island, stranded, who would you like to bump into?

9. What colour suits you best? Do you wear colours often?

10. Is nature important to you?

Super Hero and Awards

Standard

Last week, we had a change of computers and servers at school. Unfortunatley due to this some teachers lost some files. Our Reception teacher was very distraught as she lost a Presentation for phonics, she is using everyday on the whiteboard to teach the children. Having lost it she would have had to change her planning and her lessons, and had to think of a way around it. She came to me and asked what to do. She did have paper copies of all the letters and sounds. I said I can try and scan these in and make a new presentation for her. After playing around a bit how to do it, ( I am not too familiar with powerpoint) I had it cracked and started with all the letters of the alphabet. With different sounds in the English language it made 40 slides, and 2 hours later I had it done and saved!

The next day she was so excited to see the new presentation she danced around in her classroom, I had made her very happy! During the day little children, aged 4, from her class came to me to thank me and gave me little cards.

This was one:

super hero at desk

Me at my desk

and

me in my red dress

me in my red dress

My red dress matching my cheeks. 🙂

The teacher had told the children that she lost her teaching aid and there was a super hero in the school who made it happen again. They had to guess who it was and they guessed it was me. They all know me well.

I got some awards from them too:

super hero awards

Working with small children is such fun and so rewarding.
