Another littler corner of my garden!
Back at school this week and I feel so much better! I don't usually say this as I do love my holidays, but working with children certainly helps to take your mind off other things!
Some other colleagues have said the same thing.
In the playground during one lunch break, a small girl, aged five, came up to me and slipped her little hand in mine, looking very upset.
"That boy is trying to take away my most precious thing!" She said.
"Where is it now?" I asked.
The girl said, "I don't know!"
"What is the precious thing?" I asked, feeling I was not getting enough information.
"I don't know!" She replied.
"Has the boy taken it?" I asked.
"No." She replied.
"But he wants to take it?" I asked.
"Yes" she said.
"But you don't know what he wants to take?"
"No" She answered.
Well I know it is the start of a new term, and I was not really into school just yet, but I was feeling a bit perplexed! I noticed the girl was getting a bit bored with this conversation and her eyes were following friends around the playground as though she wanted to move on. The boy in question was also playing with a different group of friends and didn't look as though he was involved in a squabble or anything.
"Are you Ok now?" I asked.
"Yes," she said skipping away!
I am still none the wiser about that situation..... but if only our little dramas could be smoothed away in such an easy, swift manner!
Now I have to announce the award that I kindly received from Momma some time ago and I should have passed it on to others. Well I will do so now! You are all great!
I would like to pass it on to:-
