Hi everybody! I can't believe I have been back at school for 3 and a half weeks already - where has the time gone? Work is going really well, very busy, but that helps to pass the time. I am really enjoying this new school year so far, and my new class.
It's been quite a busy week in other ways, with meetings at both schools. I had to go to Emily's school for a meeting about Emily's trip to Greece in two weeks - what a lucky girl she is! The trip looks fantastic, I wish I was going. At least this trip is a proper educational one - Theology and Philosophy - and she will learn a lot. Mark had to go to Edward's school at the same time to meet Edward's new teachers after his current teacher goes on maternity leave in a few weeks time. The the next night, Mark and I were back at Emily's school finding out how we are going to cope with her during the next two years whilst she is studying for her GCSEs - no miracles there unfortunately!! Apparently it is all about finding a balance - HOW??!!
Edward put himself forward for Student Council this week, and made a good job of his campaign. Unfortunately he didn't get elected, but it was a closely run election for his year. He was disappointed, but he has done it before - so at least he has had the opportunity.
As I said, busy, busy - and dealing with a truculent teenager as well!
Edward had a football match this Saturday which they lost 5-4, but they deserved to win. Then he had a great afternoon because two of his friends came round to play and stayed for tea. He really enjoyed himself. Emily was out for most of Saturday, round her friend's house for a birthday party until 9pm.
As you will see from the photos, I have had a busy weekend - more cupcakes (chocolate and vanilla ones) and some new card designs. The cakes were yummy and I hope you like the cards. I have been using the Sorbet Souffle papers again, but got a little bored, so I tried something else.
