So I tried to do some maths, Fidget basically said no. She thinks she is more important than hard maths.
I went to Ilkley moor, I took my hat and trousers – and needed them as there was hail shooting around at 45 degrees.
Maybe that’s why there were no ducks playing football, there were ducks at all. It was most disappointing.
It shouldn’t make me laugh…
But when the sign says “for you” and “large baps” I know it’s not funny if you are northern, but it is if you are me.
A day of Easter presents,procreation and bubbles.
In the traditional way of my family there is a token gesture towards chocolate and a book as Easter presents.
Then it was off round the paddock with the hound, stopping off to check up on the 30 odd toads we’d relocated last night. The seem happy in the pond and were busy getting to know each other, and meet the newts.
The frogs had already done their thing, so the front pond was already full of the gloopy spawn.
Lunch was had with nana and then the rain came…
It was kind of cool as there were rainbows coming out of the back of all the cars in the spray, and double rainbows in the sky. Not that they came out in the pictures.
Then in the evening more chocolate, in the form of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – though my favourite part was the bubbles!
Still having Easter joy.
Walked the hound, started being productive, and doing washing. Then went down to Portsmouth to see my best friend and as the smallest girl snuggled up on my lap, my little girl snuggled up on hers.
And then there was a trip to the parents because Easter is apparently family time.
Easter is not the time for bunnies and eggs. It is the time for toads, hundreds of them, trying to get themselves squished under your feet.
1st day of the holiday.
Beautiful sky, perfect for sitting outside – not a day for keeping the students at a desk.
The hound had a 3 hour walk as I put out the eggs for the Scouts. And then another walk as the Scouts learnt how to use 8 figure grid references to locate the hidden eggs…
It has the cutest little nose, one of my students got one without a nose and had nose envy, so I was nice and gave her mine.
They did well in tutor today… Hot cross buns, an egg for best attendance and lots of maths!
