A week in almost back at work. In our little bubbles, much handwashing and vigilence and laughs aplenty. Yesterday whilst with the smaller childers - we were outside working on an art project. The children were charged with sketching their most favourite part of the playground, the part they would show any new pupils to, the part they had perhaps missed the most during lockdown. Off they went, armed with viewfinders, sketch books and pencils to explore and create amazing works of art.
Some looked at the adventurey playground bit, some looked at the best hide and seek places ( This, by the way, always makes us staff laugh our legs off because essentially we have a square playground with zero nooks and crannies for good hiding yet it's an eternally favourite played game! )
One little cherub was busy drawing away at the top of the playground. A very good likeness it was too. I asked why have you drawn this? To be proudly told that it was their very favourite part of the playground and that they really missed it. What had they drawn?
A plate of fishfingers!!

You could not make it up!
Madam hurt her paws on the shore so was confined to barracks with sudacrem and socks on for a few days to allow them to heel. She remains the best dog in the world.
So much to say but no time as I need to get my online shopping done and get to bed! Smothered in Vic tonight as very cattarrrrrrghy. Leftovers from the cold I had last weekend that made me a paranoid covid hypochondriac.
