We had our annual 3 days of summer this week! It was glorious. Except I was in school.

This weekend it was West End Live in Trafalgar Square, where different old and new musicals showcase a few songs. It was wonderful to see lots of new musicals and add a few to my To Watch list.

My Sunday Smiles

I’ve been on half term this week which means I’ve been able to sleep (yay!), drink (yay!) and do things that I want to do with my days (yaaaay!) So I’ve got lots of smiles for this week.

  • I had a lovely day in London, eating street food in Camden, visiting Forbidden Planet, and seeing my first show in the National Theatre! I went to see Ugly Lies the Bone, which was different to what I was expecting but really, really good! It was a straight run through, with no breaks, and the setting was incredible.
  • My Illumicrate arrived! (My unboxing). It’s a 3 monthly subscription, so I’m always really excited when this arrives. It was a super haul this month too, with my highlights being: two books, a candle and a cute HP keyring.
  • I went to Oxford for the day (my post). We had a completely nerdy bookish day going to the Bodleian Library (where they filmed HP), buying books from Oxford University Print shop and going to the Eagle and Child (drinking grounds of the Inklings).
  • We went to London Zoo at night! ZSL are doing evening events during summer where people walk around in costume, they have food and music. It’s rather lovely without all the children! The animals tend to be more active in the evening too 🙂
  • I completed all my school reports! Hurrah! 30 reports takes an awfully long time to write and I’m pretty sure by the end most of them didn’t really make sense. But they’re completed!

It’s been beautiful sunshine all week! Nothing cheers me up more than lovely weather. (I say as it is now chucking it down). And it’s half term! Hurrah! It really couldn’t have come sooner. I’m very excited to catch up on lost sleep (lets just ignore all those reports I have to write.)

I have a couple this week!

  1. I had a lovely Saturday in Brighton with some friends, exploring the lanes, eating lots of food and playing mini-golf (which I sucked at).
  2. I had a school trip this week which was actually really nice. It’s always good when you return back to school with the same number of children you left with.
  3. I scared my gerbils and housemates by squealing with delight because I have been granted access to Age of Swords by Michael J Sullivan, who is one of my favourite authors! Meep!
  4. I have a tea subscription and it arrived this week with my favourite fruit tea in – Strawberry and Kiwi. It also has a lovely Chai tea which I can’t wait to try 🙂

I have a couple this week!

  1. Monday was a bank holiday. We were meant to meet up with friends and go for a picnic in a park but the rain scarpered that idea. So instead, we set the picnic blanket up on the floor in the living room and had an indoor picnic instead which was really nice.
  2. I had my performance management this week, which is always a huge relief when it is over. It’s always lovely to get lots of positive feedback, especially when I’ve been feeling low recently.
  3. I was granted access to the ARCs of One of Us is Lying by  Karen M. McManus and The Best of Adam Sharp by Graeme Simsion both of which I am super excited about!

This week we were meant to have an inset, in another school, with an interactive drama section. Performing in front of other people, especially my peers or people that are older than me, is pretty much my idea of hell. I’ve been ill this week, so I seriously contemplated pretending I was still ill just to get out of it, that’s how much I really didn’t want to do this. But I forced myself to go. I felt like a complete idiot. But you know what? It really wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. So a pat on the back to me for not bailing!

I love going to the theater; musicals, plays, old, new, comedy, satire, you name the time and the place and I’ll meet you there. I’ve been super lucky this Easter to see two fantastic plays – Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead starring Daniel Radcliffe (eeeek!) and Joshua McGuire, and Don Juan in Soho starring David Tennant. Both plays were completely different, although they were both very funny. Don Juan was not what I was expecting; it was more modern, with contemporary jokes. I could say with great confidence it’s the best play I’ve seen in the last six months, which is saying something considering I’ve seen No Man’s Land with Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen in that time! I would definitely recommended it if you can get your hands on the tickets.

I’ve been to London a lot and have done most of the big things so now I  love going into London and just wandering. I went in this weekend with some friends and they let me take them to some of my favorite places. We went to Camden to get liquid nitrogen icecream and the most delicious hot chocolate from ChinChin Labs. Then we went to Forbidden Planet and Orbital Comics to stock up our bookshelves followed by having a nosey around the Tate Modern. We finished off with some bubble waffles (yum!) and playing Harry Potter Cluedo.

This has been a really difficult week so coming up with my Sunday Smile this week has been rather difficult.

 

We’ve been doing acrostic poems this week. For the letter E a child wrote:

“Eggs are yummy for [their name]”

For M a different child wrote:

“Miss [my name] is my favourite teacher ever”
