This week I am celebrating:
1) Meeting more new friendly and interesting people - through both my health pursuits and my artistic clubs :)
2) Catching up with friends who have been ill but are now on the mend!
3) Bagging some more bargains at the local charity shops :) yipee!!
I have been after some waterproof trousers for some time now (as my Nordic walking training will take place whatever the weather I'm told!!) but even in the sales they are all about £40 and let's be honest I probably won't be using them that much so I was delighted when I found a pair (£3.50 in my local disability charity shop) that I could get into (my healthy eating is paying off) and that were not completely black and soulless either.
I also wanted a pair of waterproof boots that had a good deep tread on for those boggier places and even though I wasn't thinking pink these will do - certainly for £5 they will do :)
Once again I give thanks for being able to have the freedom to enjoy my life and all that it brings - there are so many opportunities out there for celebrating those small things so let me know (by leaving a comment below) what has made your day this week?
This week, I am also joining in with Five for Friday hosted by Doodle Bugs Teaching
I'm recycling these little counters I made last year in honour of the wet weather we've been having recently - March will soon be here! Please feel free to use in whatever way you want for your classroom :)
They often have many names but I always did these with my class when we studied the Aztecs at school!
Here is quite a good link if you want to have a go - http://www.auntannie.com/FridayFun/GodsEye/
I made a start on up-cycling some old curtains into ones that will fit the long windows in my bedroom and although I wish I could have done both pairs other events have intervened so here's to hoping next week will allow the other pair to be competed too.
If you want to read more about what I did you can read my earlier post HERE
Finally, on the theme of rain I have a freebie to give away. If you click on the picture below you will get a powerpoint presentation that you can use for a whole host of things e.g. teaching days of the week, alliteration, commas in lists and even a traditional rhyme with a twist.
Hope you have fun with it and any feedback would be really useful :)
