Often when Grove Road School comes up in conversation, a comment that frequently crops up, is the lack of a grassy area in the playground. Parents want their children to have access to a green space during playtime. It doesn’t seem to matter that for most of the year their children won’t be allowed on said green knowl as there… Read more →
Here is a picture of Matt and Annie reading stories, I am not sure though, who is putting who to bed, but they look like they are having a lovely time. The book that Annie is looking at is the classic ‘Sophie la giraffe’.
Happy birthday Daddy John from everyone here at Dragondrop. We wish you an amazing wonderful and fabulous year, just like you.
Poor little Annie-Mo is still poorly. Thank goodness we currently have a fully functioning washing machine as I must have done at least four loads of washing today. The weather was beautiful, a gorgeous blue skied, crisp winter’s day. However -1 is no temperature for drying washing so inside the house there is washing draped everywhere. Today has been the… Read more →
Annie-Mo was sick in the night, poor little lady. She has been subdued and not her usual boisterous self. Other news and it would appear that Elsie is shedding. There is dog hair on everything that that doesn’t move, cups, utensils,books,face cloths. Does she not know it’s winter. Elsie dog you should be growing a thicker coat not sporting a… Read more →
Today was a staff training day at St Aidans. It’s a little odd for a school to have a training day in the middle of term, I am not sure what the schools reasoning was, however the boys and I took full advantage of the free day to go shopping for shoes.Jay had walked through his and they now let… Read more →
Jay was talking about his ribs aching today. Apparently the pain is mainly located in his ‘intercontinental’ muscles.
Today I sold lots of my old vintage clothes to a vintage shop near by. I could have got lots more money for them if I sold each item on eBay, but I just haven’t got the desire to nurture and check my eBay site each day so i felt the vintage shop was the most lucrative option available. As… Read more →
I have been on a bit of a spending spree. I get a little carried away when I am Christmas shopping as so much money is being spent what does a little more matter? I was thinking of doing a bag haul video and it made me giggle. Normally bag hauls blogs on YouTube have clothes and make up but… Read more →
I have always liked the feeling silk and satin. As a child I had a snuggley blanket. I used to rub it’s silky edge against my nose for comfort. I love silken pj’s and as of today I now have a silky bed. As soon as I had replaced the old bed linen with my new purchase I dived on… Read more →
Jay was walking backwards and fell over, his mate fell heavily on top of him and Jay was unable to get up even after his mate had moved. Half past one this afternoon I received a panicked call from school asking me to come and collect Jay to bring him to a&e. Luckily Matt was able to leave work early… Read more →
Today I have been mostly eating yummy food Matt has cooked, seeing a good friend and looking at stunning pictures of Marakesh. Designing our Christmas cards and looking at beauty advent calenders and thinking how lovely but how expensive. I have been learning how to use Google talk, trying to not feel ridiculous doing so, and doing my best to… Read more →
Here is a picture of Donna taking Annie-Mo and Bruce, Elsie’s best friend for a walk. Annie-mo looks so cute. We had a lovely walk and then sat on a bench in a field to eat chocolate Danishes. A golden lab retriever came and stole Annie’s Danish right out of her hand. I couldn’t help laughing at her expression of… Read more →
