So this is it you lot.
In about 30 minutes we are loading the car and off to Heathrow for the 9pm to Addis. This is crunch time - where we find out if baby Noah is really, truly going to ours - imagine the most stressed you have ever been and then times it by 100 and you will be close to how I am feeling right now. Yesterday leaving work was horrible, Charmian my colleague cannot for the life of her understand why I was sad, but leaving all my lovely boys and girls was a bit gut wrenching - I got two brill cards and some awesome flowers from my first years - I think Siobhan and Milly werre behind it, so thank you lovelies!
This is basically a round up of what has gone down recently and today's unusual events - i.e. packing for an 11 month old!!
How am I going to blog as a non textiles teacher?????? Well only temporarily......
After enjoying making the pics for Noah's room so much I thought I would make some for the stall - a lot of making took place over the Easter hols for fear of having no time or desire upon our return from Africa!
Birds of course!
My fabby pal Caroline had a birthday - she of the "A year of living brilliantly" blog http://carolinepeene.blogspot.co.uk/ and we had an amazing and incredibly boozy lunch with her and some of her other very nice friends - I have stolen these images from her blog!
I wish I hadn't seen this link on her blog though! http://www.husandhem.co.uk/
My birthday offering!
Back at college Emma-Jane has gone dino crazy - we found these on Pinterest and decided to have a go!
More spray paint coats needed but you get the idea!!!
I became addicted to the idea for Noah's room - so she picked me up a handful from Hawkins Bazaar! What a sweet girl she is!
Here is my scarily good card from the first years - Yes I'm ALWAYS late and yes, I ALWAYS have a Costa in my hand!!!!
Let me tell you - the flowers were HUGE! I had a raging cold and couldn't smell them initially, apparently the staff room gave everyone a headache!!
How sweet is this? Ivan's (Mr Bicknell's) last Rolo!
As a last Mum and daughter jolly (who are we kidding?) Mum and I went to Bournemouth for a spot of pampering - we also popped into the aquarium - oh I do love a good aquarium!
I wouldn't recommend the hotel we stayed in - the Royal Bath - more like a Royal Laugh, but my Mum is very good company so it was fine!
Blimey - you can't take her anywhere!!!
She didn't even pick them up!
Card number two - both made me cry!
And a final goodbye - so long Alton College!
The second years also made me endure this......
So, the next time I blog, hopefully this room will be occupied!
