1. Saying goodbye to Year 11 - happy and sad. Their last day on Friday - fancy dress, water pistols and shaving foam but all good-humoured. Wrote them goodbye poem and gave them remaining copies of World Book Night book 'Noughts and Crosses' to encourage them to keep reading.
2. Two sunny days at the weekend so got out in the garden. Back to layering on the woollies again today. Refusing to turn on the heating- it's nearly June.
3. Have made Jen's Roasted Veg pasta recipe a few times now and it's a winner. The addition of the feta cheese makes the difference. Didn't have any fennel today but used aubergine and it worked well. A good way of getting veg down my brocolli hating teenager. And I enjoyed it with a glass of red tonight as a reward for a day of more exam marking.
4. Relaxed mornings with no rushing around as we are all off this week and staying at home until Friday. I get up early and enjoy a cup of tea and some blog browsing before anyone else emerges.
