First Day Back!

blogged by me domestic goddess On 9/05/2007 04:23:00 PM
Izzy had her first day back to Buckden Primary school today, as a year 2 student! She has had butterflies all morning, bless her and was dressed and fed, sat on the sofa by 8.10am all ready to go to school. This I might add will be the first and only time this school year!
I always forget something, and today it was lunch money!! no lunch money , no lunch, is the new rule, or so it said in last years letter, luckily they said they would feed Izzy!!! which came with a wink, i am too well known for my disorganisation skills by the school as well!

Good news came today in a letter from Izzys head, asking me to start my after school craft clubs. i am so excited about this. It seems to me children do not get enough craft time at school. I taught scrapbooking to Year 1 and 2 with great success and it was then that i saw the lack of materials and equipment they actually had. I will have fun making lots of exciting projects over a 6 week course. Just waiting for my police checks to be done and then it will be all systems go with "Lil Scrapping Angels".
More good news comes for Scrapping Angels retreat number 3, all of our teachers have now been finalised as

Anna Bowkis (me!!)
Annie Hafermann
Lucy Folch
Tracie Hudson

Check out the blog for details, and go book now as we only have a handful of places left now.
Our bedroom is nearly finished, here are a few photos that Izzy took, lol as another night of
wallpapering came to an end. And the inspiration for my room, these 2 candles.

I am off to hopefully do some creating tonight, how about you?
