Things that made me laugh at work:-
Being innocently asked, by a child working on the computer, putting pictures on a word document of a little cartoon Robin
" Miss, howd'you flip the bird?" The child asked over and over and I was crying on the inside dying not to laugh!!
The child who rushed to put their jumper on to qualify for a prize ticket that had ALREADY been drawn ...
The ticket gets drawn
The children stand up
Then they are eliminated eg it's a girl ( so the boys sit down), the winner has sandals on ( so all the shoe wearers sit down ) etc till the winner is left standing! The class love it.
Yesterday the ticket was drawn, the class stood up..
The winner is wearing a jumper......
Cue the rush to put the jumper on..
The next thing that made me laugh was reading some of their stories. There was the one with the unfortunate handwriting who was writing about 'this guy' throughout. Except they'd used an 'a' instead of the 'u'!
'suddenly a 'guy' appeared....
Then the 'guy' walked quickly down to the shops etc! My mirth was uncontrollable for a while. By the end of the story there were enough 'guys' to start a Mardi Gras parade!
Another story spoke of bravery and adventure as the lead character went on a mission of climbing volcanoes, tunnelling down mountains, parachuting and going to a shopping centre!
Here's a photo of the test paper that made the class staff howl. The story, the children were answering questions about, was a Canadian story of how a family escaped a bear attack by climbing up into their loft. The ladder saved them by being their escape to safety and then by falling, it hit the bear and startled it making it leave the house....
I love this class. I need to keep a record of the things they say because I do keep forgetting! Every. Single. Day. Is a joy to go to work!
The cake. It was huge! I had to cut it into quarters to store it in two large cake tins!
Trying to re home it!
To round off this morning's post before I drag my weary carcass out of my bed I'll share what I think is the most gorgeous flower in my garden with you! It's another photo of those anemones I showed you yesterday. I bought the bulbs last year. I left them on the side in the kitchen to the point of mouldiness, I planted then about a month after they said I should! I hope they come back next year! I am going to see if I can find them again to buy some more because I think they'd look magnificent in clumps rather than casually dotted around like I did. ie I just shoved them quickly into the soil wherever!!
Not bad for an iPhone photo I don't think!
I wish you could smell these! They are in my front garden. You get the most heavenly sweet perfume, almost like Parma violets, wafting towards you as you approach my house! I think I said yesterday, passers by stop to admire and sniff!!
Ok, enough ramblings! Time to get up. Saturday will feature visiting the Heart patient, weeding, shopping, cleaning, washing, knitting, sorting out etc etc
Not christened tea yet, so that'll be a surprise! I think I'll start the day with stripping the bed, a shower and a brew. In that order!
Play nice folks
Lots of love from
