Summer

So.. I work in a school. Usually. Sometimes i just knit. But i digress… Working in a school means lots of good things. I get to be part of childrens education, i get to do fun things like facepainting, i get to see a (sometimes) totally different perspective on life. Bu most importantly to me right now is that i get SIX weeks holiday 🙂

Im determined to ensure that i dont waste them either. When i had summer holidays when i was younger the days sort of merged together somewhat, bt when i ave weekend times i seem to be able to overfill my time with masses of things i have to do. I shall therefore be treating the nex six weeks as one big weekend. Let me tell you how is gone so far…

Summer Holidays 2012: DAY 1 – Saturday 21st July ( an actual weekend day)
Saturday was the first nice weather we had for a few days which seemed highly appropriate for the first day of the summer holidays. I spend it on a stall selling teacosies, headbands, phone cases etc etc at St Johns Chuch Craft Fair. I did not lose money. This is good. Then Sam and I had a delightful pizza before heading home, from a little tucked away bistro where the staff remembered my order perfectly from my last visit….apparently they dont get many vegans. Weird.

Summer Holidays 2012: DAY 2 – Sunday 22nd July ( also an actual weekend day)
The good weather continues into the new week when Sam and I get up early (to packed sandwiches and crisps-thanks mom!) to get in the bus and drive to BugJam 26 at Santa Pod near northampton

Summer Holidays 2012: DAY 3 – Monday 23rd July ( NOT an actual weekend day…)
Today i succeeded in finishing the rug i was working on from strips of discarded mummy costume..
