School's out! Hurrah for school holidays. And double hurrah for not being a teacher and having to go in during the holidays to set things up for next term! Although I don't work on Fridays I went in this morning for the year 6 leavers assembly. I held it together through most of it, but had tears rolling down my cheeks when they sung Silver and Gold (that might not be the correct name of the song) and linked arms and begun to sway. That was me gone, snivelling into a tissue and being stared at by a hall full of children. Too soft for this job. Anyway, it's nice to know I have six weeks of no work ahead of me.
Right, this weeks charity shop purchases.
First we have the two tureens, or dishes, I'm not sure of the technical term. Two dishes but only one lid. Not a massive disaster as one of them is too far gone on the inside to use for anything other than pot pourri or flowers, so I will use the lid on the one that's ok.
More photos. My boss bought me this...
One of my other presents was this,
The other big event this week was The Day Manny Ran Away To The Boy Scout Camp. Yesterday morning the little darling decided to squeeze through a hole in the fence and try to join the Cubs. After 45 minutes of chasing him round a field, (the old man, not me) trying to lure him with a shortbread tin of dog biscuits and swearing and shouting, the old man managed to get him into the toilet of the scout camp and get him back on the lead. All this at 7am on a rainy morning. Anyway, he is grounded. Only allowed out on a lead until we get a new fence panel and is also firmly in disgrace. He also stinks and will be bathed as soon as I get a chance. If he does it again I am buying him a uniform and sending him off camping for the weekend.
PS I forgot these,
