Some weeks I take loads of pictures and others not so many. Over Easter I took probably 150+ pictures, but this week there has been a handful and they have mostly been specific ones I’ve needed for one of my blogs. In some ways that has reflected the kind of week it’s been : fairly quiet, but a few things did happen.
H went back to school on Monday. He thought he was going to have the teacher they’d had one day a week last term, that none of the class seemed to have liked, full-time this term. The kids came out smiling with a letter saying that she wouldn’t be teaching them after all and they were going to have another teacher instead. On Tuesday they had their new teacher for the first time and he seems popular: the verdict so far is fun, but strict, which is probably what a Year 5 teacher should be. Of course, the rumour mill in the playground was turning rapidly as to the reasons why the change. This is the first male teacher H has really had. Previously, they’d been taught by the deputy head a few times; had the odd male supply teacher; and had a very popular, male, student teacher last term, but never a full-time male teacher. Meanwhile I’ve been at home catching up on work and jobs with my furry friends. They had deserted the study (and me) for the conservatory in the nicer weather, but they have been back in their radiator bed this week because it’s been so cold.
I’ve been trying to work on my food photography because I’m finding I’m doing more and more food related things on both this blog and A Little Luxury For Me. Quite proud of the pictures I took for this piece about vegetarian food.
Bad news on Friday though as Mum fell over again. She’d only just recovered from her last fall just before the Easter holidays. On that occasion she just had cuts and bruises, but this time she managed to break a small bone in her hand. Hopefully, she’ll recover fast, but I think she might have to slow down her busy schedule for a while at least.
