Project Life Tuesday: June 18th – June 24th

The Mom Creative

Linking up, as is traditional, with the beautiful and talented Jessica, for Project Life Tuesday!  This week was activity week for my wee men, so while I have caboodles of photos in my book, and over on our class blog, I shan’t share them here (I never put pictures of my students on my blog :)).  But there’s still lots to chatter about!

Monday, June 18th:  Up early to head across town, ready for the off.  I also got to have a little play on my new toy, our cross-trainer!  Looking forward to lots of sessions on here and (hopefully) a little shrinking in the months to come.

Once at school we headed off to Surrey for an afternoon of orienteering,
and an evening talk from an awesomely batty animal rescuer, who showed
us owls and polecats and hedgehogs.  Brilliant!  We were so lucky with the weather for our away days again – three days of glorious sunshine and warm weather.  Thursday morning, once we were back in London, the heavens opened!

Tuesday, June 19th:  No photos on here, but a lovely day nonetheless – ropes courses and adventuring and pond dipping and a campfire and a boys’ talent show.  Love going away with my little gang!

Wednesday, June 20th:  A morning of archery, mazes and playing in the woods, and then a journey home.

I took this quick snap in my classroom Wednesday before heading home to Leyton. 

I remember thinking I looked a little glassy eyed and peaky, which made more sense…..

Thursday, June 21st: …when I woke up at six on Thursday, running a temperature, feeling clammy, sore tummy, sore head, swollen tongue and no voice.  Stayed off school and slept most of the day away.  So thankful for wonderful colleagues who covered me, and understanding pupils and families!  And for my lovely supportive boy too.

Friday, June 22nd: Another day away from school, another day asleep.  Finally woke up at 4 pm feeling fairly normal, and thankful once again for lovely folk and cups of tea!

Saturday, June 23rd:  Also known as the day of writing reports.  I now sit at 126/144 done, with five days to go.  Huzzah!  Chilled evening at home with Matthew, Dave, a curry and some football.

Sunday, June 24th:  A day of getting stuff done – for school, around the house, on the phone….all ready for another busy and fun week 🙂

…and after!


 After three days of rain, this sunny interval interrupted the showers.

 Insane hair.  Thank heavens I’ve got a haircut booked!

Organisation, baby!

How was your week?  This week’s even busier, and full of lots of fun as well as lots of work.  Bring it!

    Send some of the sun here, yes? 🙂 My little bro visited last week and it was great. He helped with chores and made me laugh quite a lot.

      Would that I could…. Glad you had a great visit from your bro. Hope you are getting lots of rest and TLC!

      Now we just need to co-ordinate the Canada 2008 reunion. You, me, Alexandra, London 2013?
