January 2015 Photos

Decided to keep all my photos on one page per month. Easier to look back on.

1st

Ben's room was more than a little girly when we moved in so this is what we did to make it more suitable to him (and me!)

It has been a funny end to the day. I didn't really see B today as I had to rush back to school for a Governors meeting. So here he is at his most beautiful as seen just before I made my own way to bed. Being a full time teacher and mum is hard going.

So we got a teeny tiny bit of snow here this morning. I was v excited. But by the time I got to work there was none.

Today would have been my nan's 86th birthday. She was a fab nan and I have many happy memories from my childhood with her and my grandad. Here she is with her son (my dad), me, my mum and brother from the early 90s.

Tonight I went with Joe, his mum and her 2 sisters to see 'Barbara Nice' at the Lowry. It was a very funny night but the best part of it has to be at the end where she got all 200 of us outside the theatre playing 'What time is it Mr Wolf?' This is something I haven't played since primary school. Hillarious!

17th

image

B went to a party today for 4 of his classmates. He had the best time!

18th

image

There may only have been a little bit of snow, but when you are 4 and a half (exactly) a little is just enough to have fun with!

19th

image

Tonight's tea was chicken pie, mash, broccoli and cauliflower. I didn't make the pie but I did make a rather tasty mash. Just what is needed on a day like today.

20th

image

I love Tuesdays. I have my ppa on a Tuesday afternoon so I get to pick up B earlier than the rest of the week. Today we have already done some writing on the Aquadraw and had a dance to Let it Go and Happy. Love my boy.

21st

Tomorrow I say goodbye to my choir conductor. I ordered a replacement of my musical earrings that were broken as I felt nothing was more suitable for his funeral.

22nd

image

Today saw a packed church and a very fitting service for a man who gave so much to so many. He gave me so much joy after joining his choir 7 years ago. He may have frequently taken the mickey out of us in the Altos but he always made me smile. Joe did so much for charity and gave so many people a love of choral singing. RIP Joe.

Ahh Friday night, how I love thee! Tonight involves being chilled out next to Joe on the settee under my blanket watching FA Cup football on tv.

24th

image

A lazy Saturday ahead (other than cleaning) and plenty of eggs in the house so I decided to make pancakes for breakfast. Not bad actually. Ben polished his off in seconds!

25th

We must never forget the horrors of places like Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen. I watched a documentary tonight and these are pictures from it.

28th

Today has been a really difficult day including attending the funeral of one of my pupils. So here is the view in our kitchen with what snow there is before I head off for bed. More forecast but will it be enough for a snow day?

29th

image

So there wasn't enough for a Snow Day but there was quite a lot of snow. Here is the view from my classroom before the heavy stuff arrived. We had a lovely time playing with the kids

30th

image

I love Christmas pudding and the wintery weather inspired me to dig out this one I had stored away.

31st

image

So today was all about flat pack! Me and my father in law spent the day making up Ben's bedroom furniture.

So there we are. One month done! Pleased with myself for getting back in to the photo a day routine. Thanks in the most part to the #Teacher5aday
