IOW returning

I am going of to IOW again tomorrow but this time I am only taking Jaimie. I am returning to stay at the
Courtlands Hotel Shanklin as Robin and Geri the owners have given me an excellent deal for 3 days. With all the studying going on in the house I thought it would be good to get away and leave them to it. I won't be posting during the time I am away but will fill you in on our return. (Any way yet again I have no camera as it has been sent away!).

Keep your eyes on Shanklin Weather Report to see if it is sunny for us.

More Quotes!

When asking my team what they were wearing to travel home in (It was going to be a windy day) Gill answered:
" Jeans and a sick bag!" It creased me up so much I fell down the stairs!

Uncensored IOW 2006

Although you can follow my travels here I thought I would write about the things I could not on the school weblog!

First funny quote on the first night. A group of 4 boys were sitting at the table. One of them is Jewish and stricly kosher so was not eating nuggets like the rest of his table but had pizza.
M says to him:

"So then, what are you a Christian, lesbian, vegetarian or what,and can you eat chicken?"

Quote 2 - Delaying bedtime and maybe a little homesick T says to a member of staff.

" You know I have just been bitten by a scorpion or a water snake or something and I have very nasty bites on me!"

Quote 3 - Whilst a memeber of Staff was helping the children to pack up their cases.

Mrs Lautman " You know, You are all making me cross no-one is helping and we are not getting anywhere."

C (a 7 year old ) says calmly " I know, it's really pissing me off too!"

Quote 4,M aged 8..."My uncle knows about Japan, he's Japanish"

I also had a visit to A and E with a young chap who split his head open so that was a bit hairy. In and out of A and E in an hour (It may be worth a drive to the Island in an emergency)
All in all a fantastic 5 days - thanks team I love you all

I'm A Teacher Get Me Out of Here!

The classroom is building up into a great rainforest. Each day a new leaf, vine, branch or insect appear!


I am getting out of the classroom as next week I will be leading a party of 42 seven and eight year old on a five day trip to the Isle of Wight.

If you look at my school blog you will be able to follow our progress. You can leave messages but keep the clean as the parents are logging in!

I Heart NY - Season 4

"Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course, we wouldn't fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are. After all, seasons change. So do cities. People come into your life and people go. But it's comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you're very lucky, a plane ride away".

(Sarah Jessica Parker - as Carrie Bradshaw)
