I don’t know what the weather has been like for you but for me it has been true British summer weather. It’s been chucking it down. It’s been literally bouncing off of the pavements. Luckily, on the days we’ve booked things it has been lovely! Yay!

On Thursday we went to the Hilton hotel by Green Park (oo, fancy) for an afternoon tea and cocktails. It was absolutely scrummy. I just love scones with jam and creme. The tea was so good I drank 3 teapots full and then went on a hunt around London to buy some for myself (Caramel Roiibos).

 

DSC_0144We also took a day trip to Dover castle. Our poor little car really struggled getting up that hill but we made it! It’s an amazing castle with so much history. I love going through the all the tunnels and we were really lucky that the waiting time for the underground hospital and war tunnels was short. It’s definitely a day trip I would recommend but be prepared for walking up and down a lot of hills! Dover’s really close to where my parents live so afterwards we surprised them by popping in for a cup of tea.

  • Our local MP visited our school this week. I audibly laughed when he asked my shiny faced 5 year olds if they knew about Brexit. We also learnt not to let them ask their own questions that hadn’t been pre-planned as one of them, confident as you like, asked: “What’s the fastest dog in the world?”
  • This time next week I’ll be on my summer holidays, my energy levels are very grateful for that!
  • I had a wonderful meet up with lots of university friends which is always lots and lots of fun!
  • After my reading slump, I’ve completed THREE books this week! (round of applause for me) I just haven’t been motivated to write the reviews for them yet!

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’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”

This week was our first week back after half term and what should happen on our first day back? That’s right. We get the dreaded ‘call’. So after a stressful start to the week, I can now say I’m an Ofsted Survivor! Woo Hoo!

It was also payday this week. After working my way through all of the Lush bath bombs I got for Christmas (I loved the Northern Lights, Avobath and Dragon’s Egg) I treated myself and bought 4 more (Over and over, Lava lamp, the Comforter and Twilight)

It’s been half term this week so I’ve had a week of catching up on sleep – that’s made me smile.

I spent Valentine’s day on the B-Bakery bus tour of London which was very yummy, I had the most amazing tea – it was called Rooibush Jardin Rouge, and we got some gorgeous coffee cups for free!Yum!

I also had a look around a wedding venue  – very nerve-wrackingly exciting stuff!harry-potter-re-read

Finally, I set myself the challenge to re-read all the Harry Potter novels this week. Find my revies here – 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 soon)
