Remembrance Sunday

I remember years ago being afraid of how the children in school was act during the two minute silence on the eleventh. I used to teach in a somewhat rough school- No child ever was anything but respectful during the two minutes.

There are times when people surprise us for the better

Well I didn't have internet last night so couldn't get on here. I came home really meaning to get straight on with my marking....decided to have a quick look on here.......more than 3 hours later I have just caught up.

So it is all your faults that I'm now having to start my marking

Have a great evening all

Whilst shopping last week I suggested to son thet we bought a couple of those big tubs of chocs for Christmas.They were only £5 each- son said no way would they make it to the start of December let alone Christmas .Think he knows me too well.

Once I started to eat a tub of honeycombe icecream- before I knew it the whole lot was gone.I had to sneak out to buy a replacement.I think I then ate most of that as well.

Why is it that I remember most when I read them but can't think of them for myself-

Back in the day when we could we used to send a child to another teacher and ask for .........a long stand or a long wait...............then the person  would see just how long they waited.

 Mind you I also used to make children stand  just outside my firedoor.It led to a narrow passage so they basically stood just against a wall. They couldn't see anyone or be seen.One very annoying girl changed her ways when I made her stand out there for only about 5 mins, though it seemed much longer in the snow. Things have changed a lot in the past 30 odd years

Too late to plant bulbs?

WW what a clever idea. So simple really. Thank you

I was wondering what to do with my tulips- I didn't want to chop the rest of my bulbs up.Should they go in 1L pots for the depth or larger?

I just got a baby Lady in Black which I'm going to keep inside this winter then put out next spring. It will be interesting to compare them

If it's a lady boothby I just leave it for the winter and then cut hard back in spring. Someone else may know better

Morning all.

It's taken me an hour to catch up on here and I didn't think I went to bed too early last night.

I was going to go back to sleep but don't think I'll be able to now.

Got a fair bit of school work to do- why do I always leave it 'till the last minute when I could have done it earlier in the week?

Looking quite nice outside at the mo

Have a wonderful day everyone
