Approx 10,000 photos.

That's how many I had on my phone - and thanks to  Mr 22, most of them are now on this laptop. Approx 9,050 are of Bluebell, the rest are of baking, SW meals I have made, Freddie, the purple flowers in my garden and utterly hilarious memes and pics screenshotted off the tinterweb. A few selfies too plus some old family photos too precious to delete.
I am a hoarder. Of things that can be touched and things now, that cannot!
Bluebell's 1st Birthday

Cake at the pub we went for tea in with Miss 25 and her beau. Huge portions!
See? Dog with cake and cake! Three more full weeks to get through at work. I am meeting myself coming back and my poor brain is too full it's overflowing and shutting down. I seriously don't know if it is getting madder every year or if I am just getting too old and slow to keep up! One thing I do know is how much schools are expected to do these days that in the olden days was the job of the parents! Anyway my job satisfaction meter is full to bursting too. The little one who me and my colleague have been working intensely with is finally having more successful days  than not, can read books meant for their age and has actually gone and passed the stupid waste of fecking space phonics test! Yee haaa - a great big two fingered salute to all who wrote this little cherub off  at 5 years old.  So I guess I will turn up tomorrow and see what's what.

I have so many unwritten blog posts it's ridiculous.
Another couple of pics then that's it.
The very funny card Tracey from My Beautiful life sent me. I love her.

Me and my Dad circa 1974
I wonder what I was laughing at?

Lots of love for now

  1. I absolutely love that picture of you and your dad! So nice to hear from you again. -Jenn

  2. It made me laugh!!!
    If thay have to do the moronically stuping 'pohonis screen', at least it is nice to get through it. Well done to you all. And Bluebell looks just gorgeous.

  3. We all understand how difficult your job is, not all parents care for their children enough, but the joy you must have when after working with a labled child they excell at anything, best feeling ever. Love the photo of Freddie, you and your dad, but showing me cake 1st thing in the morning!!!!!

  4. Wow, those cakes, I want to try them all, now!!!
    Lovely to hear from you again, such a happy picture of you and your Dad. Best wishes for the big countdown to the summer hols!

  5. A blog post from you cheers my day! Well done on the school stuff.
    ( wonder if the time will come when they'll be coming to school in nappies because parents can't be bothered to toilet train!

  6. Ooh those cakes look divine and very tall! I'd be hard pressed to choose which to have. I remember end of year being manic, then gradually every day seemed to become the same :( Not long to go now so hang in there. Are you in charge of the prom night or whatever you hold for Y6 again with the Mr & Miss quotes?

    My laptop died a few weeks ago and according to Mark all my photos have gone with it. Not sure if that's true or if he just can't be bothered sorting it out for me lol.

    Have you decided to festival this year? Have a lovely week. xx

  7. It will soon be the end of term and you will be able to rest your weary brain for a few weeks when it will be all set to start the new school year......


  8. Congratulations to the young student and yourselves on a great achievement.
    I agree with what you say about schools, but I feel its sent down from the government. I've been working with an older guide who's been having problems with the volume of school work/homework. Some students just can't hack the pressure.
    Nice to see you back


Many thanks for taking the time to read my words and respond with your own thoughts. I always try to reply so make sure you pop back to see!
