Five for Friday #1

It's some time since I joined in with Five for Friday hosted by Doodle Bugs Teaching - somehow Fridays always seem SO busy but today I have time to post some things that happened this week :)


The weather is becoming colder and today we actually had our first true frost!  My nose has also started to run which could mean I'm in for the first cold of the year too!

There was lovely blue sky on Monday after a dreadful grey and rainy weekend so the first Walking for Health walk of the year went really well and it was good to get out and do some exercise for an hour after the Christmas  and New Year period :)  Not many turned up as still visiting friends and relations but those who did enjoyed it.

On the theme of health, my post on Wednesday was about keeping a food journal and as many children keep these as part of their healthy weeks work now please feel free to download a copy just click on the picture below.


I've been quite busy getting some more freebies uploaded into my TpT store and would love some feedback on them if anyone has the time to download.  I like to make freebies because I know how hard teachers work and how helpful these resources can be especially being free but it is always so nice to receive that e-mail telling me someone has left feedback.  It really makes my day :)
Just click on the picture of the resource to go to it in my store.




 Finally, continuing my hat theme I just wanted to show you the before and after pictures!
Here is the wool.  One has a large amount of alpaca the other cashmere.


Here is the hat complete with pom pom!
My son was so pleased and the hat is so cuddly and warm :)

I'm off now to discover what everyone else has been up to this week.  Please leave a comment below as I love to know you've come visiting :)

    1. I've found a really easy and quick way to make pompoms maybe I'll do a quick post about it some time if people are interested?

  4. Nice hat! I tried to crochet last year, and the results were very sad. I've never even attempted knitting! Thanks for the freebies!

    1. So pleased you could make use of a freebie and I know what you mean about crocheting although I am attending a master class next week so maybe it will all become clear then!

    1. I'd like to do one with cables but I just haven't found a good pattern yet! Pom poms are so in this year, don't you think?
