Firstly, seeing as how September is a real birthday month in my family I decided to create these birthday candle numbers to celebrate. There are lots of festivals of light coming up so I thought they might be useful - please feel free to use :-)
I have now completed everything on my list from the Sunday Scoop challenge (two Sundays ago) thanks mainly to the good weather I have been able to get into my jungle (I mean garden!) and do some weeding and tidying before autumn arrives. A huge sigh of relief. Plus I got my TpT stuff posted, I sorted out my fonts folder and finally this posting which should be going live due to me figuring out pre-scheduling - hurray!
I also got around to actually having a go at making my own font for something I need to help those children I work with who have special needs but I also think it will have a beneficial effect for others as well. More will be revealed later on this month I'm sure ;-)
I have decided to take up the challenge of reading 100 books during this school year and yes although this does include books for older children I hope to be equally reading adult fiction too. So why not join in and take the challenge - all you need to do is to create a "100 Books Challenge" page on your blog and write a brief synopsis of each book you read, giving it a rating and hopefully we can all increase the amount we read and find some new authors and books that can inspire us :-) This all ties in with me trying to promote the September Literacy Campaign - maybe you would like to, too?
Had a lovely day last weekend visiting a huge car boot sale as well as going around an antiques centre. Managed to indulge my vintage children's learning games obsession along with my love of 1950's kitsch without spending too much on either - bargains all round - yipee!!
