    I’ve Lost My Marbles!

    Morning Lovelies, Three weeks completed of the Autumn term and I’m already on the Green Tea,  Manuka Honey and sounding deep and sexy. The joys of teaching! Picture me coughing, watery eyes, froggy throat and kids looking with questioning eyes as I start to sing ‘Jump Jim Jo’ in my music lesson. Body and voice suddenly let …

    Keep Your Pants On!

    Evening Lovelies, Returning to school has sadly been a disaster for my body. My nails that for the first time were growing and looking good have become broken and chipped.

    Career Changing Apron

    Morning Lovelies, What a week, but it’s ok, it’s Friday and I survived! Two inset days where we had training and talked about child protection, (sad) school improvement  plans (dull) and thinking hats. ( glittery) What are they you might ask? The hats might be sparkly and the sort you usually do a song and dance routine …

    A Beach, Log Cabin & Trip to Nowhere!

    Morning Lovelies, Gosh I’m feeling good about myself.  I have just looked down at my unglamorous legs and said to my ever flattering husband ” do you think when you’ve got lumpy bumpy cellulite legs you can ever get rid of them?” His reply ” well you can always have them amputated I suppose!” Yesterday …

    The Flying Lettuce

    Afternoon lovelies, Last night we had a lovely meal at Ses Salinas restaurant overlooking the bay. It’s lovely to sit by the sea when it is warm, eat and drink, until suddenly the WIND gets up! I’m not talking about an issue of overeating, too much alcohol or a dodgy tummy here, but the weather! …
