All neat and tidy and in one space where I can lay my hands on what I want without emptying them all out of my sewing box.
This box cantilevers revealing useful trays underneath. Most of this stuff has been Hunter Gathered by the HG! A lot of it has been with me though since my days of O'Level needlework.
They are now all tidily away on their shelves so I've everything to hand next time I sew! It drives me mad having to spend ages finding things before you start! Also, sorting is very cathartic for me. It soothes.
These ones I bought myself!
Well, my first day at work proper, I've not faffing about with INSET, staff room catch up and Display, but with real children! The six and seven year olds! Gulp. Wow what an eye opener! It's been over 15 years since I worked in y2, about 8 since I taught them as HLTA which I must have wiped from my memory! Today I've mostly been counting to 20 with the little group of sweethearts who need extra help with their maths! The bonus in Y2, that you don't get from being in Y6, is being hugged for no reason and told that you are beautiful and loved! I can't wait to see who loves me tomorrow!
Before my eyes close and I fall asleep, here's a little teaser - I stole this photo of Freddie and his brothers and sisters. It's a brilliant shot. But here's the thing. Can you spot Freddie?
Answers on a postcard!
Lots of love from
