Hey loyalists, it's been a while since I stimulated your blogletitious appetite with yet more silly tales from the life of this particularly individual individual. I bet it's been such a nice little break too. Well, relax no more because I am back, and I've collected a lot of photos on my camera since the last time you and I cyber-clashed.
First up, sadly, there has been no update from The Guy, but still I sit writhing on my tenterhooks (because they sound so painful) and checking my Gmail constantly even though I know it's the weekend, and it's probably still Sunday in the UK when it's 8am Monday morning here…
Second up, here's some before and after shots of Oscar, both pre and post-haircut. He was pretty knotty, and we ended up leaving him on the balcony all day so the travelling groomer could wash him and give him a stylish 'do. I wished her all the luck that day. Oscar's a lively little licky thing.
I've been doing a bit of crochet too, a bit of designing as a matter of fact. Necessity if the mother of all invention, they say, and it was a mother of a necessitry for me to create some fingerless gloves. Well, semi-fingerless anyway. The thumb and the little finger are partially covered. How else would they stay on, I ask you?
This is 'off' mode.
'P Diddy' mode
'Hands failed to block face' mode.
They're pretty warm, I've been wearing them out on playground duty.
This week is the last week I have teaching my grade 1 class. I'm going to miss those little sods, but I will particulary miss the quirky teacher who resides next-door to me. She has been a great support for me in terms of getting to know the school, and her view on life and teaching philosophy have been inspirational for me as a beginning teacher. I was trying to think of something nice to get her as a thankyou present, and after much deliberation, decided that she'd like something silly, and personal. My next door teacher keeps two pet mice for her class, and they live in a cage in the 'wet area' that joins our two classrooms. Their names are Milly (recently diagnosed as Milton) and Molly (now Molly Meldrum). So far I have made Milly, and this week I hope to get Molly done. Here he is:
Milly's smiling face

Milton has had drinking issues in the past.
Next week I intend to have the biggest sleep-in in the world, and go visit friends far and wide…and no i'm not talking about their bums!
Until then, I'd better go do some planning, find some string for a display and then maybe hit the sack before midnight. Bring on Friday!
