Project Life Tuesday: June 11th-17th

The Mom Creative

Linking up, as is traditional, with the crazy talented Jessica!

Monday, June 11th:  The start of exam week.  Cue stressedpupils, parents and teachers, and in typical English summer fashion…torrential rain!

 The classroom after exam number 1.


 Beautiful British summertime!

Tuesday, June 12th:  More exams and more busyness, and an evening of buying new pyjamas for me and making cupcakes for my boys!

 Exam week = treats for the badgers!

Who doesn’t love Animal?  Mega comfy PJs, just in time for away days.

Wednesday, June 13th: Nine hours of exam marking.  Like a machine, baby.

7,452 answers marked in 9 hours = 828 an hour, 13.8 a minute, just around four seconds per question.  Probably a bit quicker, as I had to count up amrks, check through, etc..

As I said, like a machine!

Thursday, June 14th:  More marking (history this time), then a quick jaunt to London Bridge to double check the route to our theatre trip on Friday.

 Love the drama of the Shard, high above the skyline.

Friday, June 15th:  No exams!  Theatre trip!  Girldate with Eileen!

 Badger in space, by one of my lovely boys.

Nom, nom, nom, asparagus!

Eileen doing her best ‘please-can-we-have-some-more-wine?’ face!

Saturday, June 16th:  A fun morning volunteering at Manna, then a quick stop off for groceries and a stroll over the Thames to go to Emily’s birthday picnic.  Such fun – and the rain stayed away!

 Choppy, choppy river.

Birthday girl!


Sunday, June 17th:  A day of packing, organising, relaxing and getting stuff done.  Oooh, and Gilmore Girls!

Getting that diary in order!

Fun times….busy times.  How are you all getting along?

    These post all make me smile. I'm busy and coughing but mostly happy 🙂

    I love the badger in space drawing! Those scones look delicious. Summer in UK looks like summer in Denmark – wet!
