    My Favourite May Shazams

    I’ve been listening to the radio quite a bit this month. Classic Fm mostly, Radio 3 and a few pieces of music thrown into the mix from films I’ve been watching that made me go ‘oohhhh’, how wonderful, I’ll investigate, because I’ve had the time, as we all have. Here’s some of my favourite music this month x I was watching ‘Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince’ the other evening (mainly because I’m a 100% Potterhead, watched all the films about 6 times each and read all the books; and for some reason I missed this) This gorgeous piece of music was playing during the credits. I love it.…

    Free Online Courses (CPD etc)

    During Lockdown, I have been advised by my employers to study and complete some online courses for CPD purposes, whilst I’ve been at home. Apart from giving me added knowledge for the benefits of teaching children; some of the courses are excellent for personal study and interest. FutureLearn:  A really good free online study resource. Unfortunately, you don’t get a certificate at the completion; you have to pay for one, but you will receive an email to confirm that you have studied. There’s quite a few subjects to choose from: Business and management, Healthcare, History, Arts, Education, Law, Languages and many more. It’s really worth taking a look. You follow…

    Food for Moods

    I’ve been a bit of a naughty girl tonight and feeling totally down in the dumps. You know how it is sometimes; nobody loves me, I really am a fat doughnut, I try and try and get nothing back, blah blah blah. So last week I lose 8Ibs because I was going to a wedding and I was adamant the dress I bought was going to fit, and now tonight I’ve gone through a bit of a meltdown and consumed a whole bar of dairy milk chocolate, a bag of wotsits, a bottle of Dr Pepper, a pain au chocolat and 2 Weetabix. I’ve not eaten a proper dinner, I’ve just felt…

    Hand Grenade Sketch

    I want to share this 2-minute piece of ultimate funniness with you this morning. Sometimes, when I share a piece of music or a small clip I tend to feel a little guilty, mainly because it consists of a small post and not a long drawn out one…but I do feel comfortable with the fact that I do write posts of thought and length. So with this in mind…..Oh for goodness sake I’m waffling again… I’ll just start from the beginning, but you do get my drift. I want to share this post with you today because it has given myself and the boys days of laughter upon the initial…
