It’s Wednesday, it’s time to witter!
Join up your blog with the linky below and tell us what’s going on with you.
I am feeling a bit disorientated at the moment. The school holidays are upsetting my routine! It’s been three weeks and it feels like school should be imminent but there are another four weeks to go! Which is a bit of a poke in the ribs to me as I start work again in the new term. I am going back to teaching as head of department, and have secured a part-time post, so just two days a week. I am looking forward to dusting the cobwebs off my brain and the challenge of a new school and some reorganisation of the curriculum. It’s the best of both worlds really – work and some money going into my account but still time at home with Littlest and plenty of time to keep blogging! I have some exciting news on my blogging, but I am not sure whether I can reveal anything yet….da, da, DA! Will keep you posted!
Yesterday we went The British Museum. I took the older two kids and on the whole is was pretty successful. We opted for the museum in walking distance of Charing Cross and as it happens they had an Olympic trail to follow (and loads of other kids stuff, if you’re interested) so after much giggling about chipped willies on all the statues we wandered through models of Olympia, decorated vases, beautiful mosaics and ended up face to face with some genuine 2012 Olympic Gold Medals! VERY exciting! And good God, they are chunky. You’d need to be an athlete just to hold your head up when wearing one. They are emblazoned with the goddess Nike on one side (as are all past summer olympic medals) and the 2012 symbol on the other. Alas, this now has new meaning to me. Avoiding reading the next bit if you don’t want to have this image ruined forever. A friend told me it looked like Lisa Simpson giving someone a blow-job. And now that’s ALL I can see when I look at it. I know – I apologise. Not the most savoury of images for such a contest…..
After the museum, my son was flagging somewhat so we went for lunch in a nice italian restaurant, Rossopomodoro, which had an amusing message on its chalkboard behind the chefs. Luckily, my daughter (who can now read fluently) did not notice/make comment on it! However, BFF and I had a giggle over our pasta.
Despite picking the one day when there was an Olympic event in the centre of London (triathlon) it was, as predicted, pretty quiet and certainly not the thronging crowds you would have expected. We only live an hour away, so it’s a very do-able trip but also exciting for the kids. I think they need to be immersed in different experiences and London certainly gives that.
So, that’s my news for the week so far. If you’re a blogger, let me know what you’ve been up to and link up below!
