Not to dwell on bad stuff though, it's my baby's birthday tomorrow, he'll be eight! Which means it's exactly eight years ago that my bigger baby had chicken pox... I have made cards for him today, they can be found on here: http://www.crafts-beautiful.com/site/index.php/forums/viewthread/9327/ . I think he'll like them, but it was strange how hard it is to make a card for a boy his age! He's into really obscure things, but Pokemon is something he loves, and he plays computer games a lot. His brother is going away for a week with school next week, it's going to be very strange without him. They fight like, well, like two things that fight a lot - japanese fighting fish maybe? But when they're separated, they miss each other terribly, and the youngest one will be very miserable. We'll try and make sure he has a good week though.
I have a few more bits I want to get done this evening, I have to try and make a little something for a halloween challenge on the forum, and still tacking the bears!

First full week of school = first injuries of the term. I got hit in the ankle by a stool thrown by one of my students at another - nasty bruising and a sore tendon. Crushed in doorway whilst trying to prevent two students from barging into classroom (obviously up to no good!) - large and painful bruise to right forearm. Student trashing classroom throwing stools around - slight bruising to other ankle. Wet tea-towel flicked by 'idiot-boy' - raised red welt on back of thigh. Breaking up fight in maths room - narrowly missed getting hit straight in the head by a flying chair, I am told it was less than an inch off me. Total number of fights broken up - six. Total number of students throwing things at me - 9. Total number of times I have been sworn at/called foul and abusive names - couldn't count, too high.
So, all in all, life at school has returned to it's fantastic normal. And yes, you probably did detect a hint of sarcasm there...

I have also managed to get lots of pointless running around done today - trip to post office, more crafting (not pointless) and now I'm off to have a quick tidy up and then the rest of my newest bear creations to cut out ready for tacking! I'm loving the colours of the mohair, they'll be very pretty little bruins! But, for now, I am saying cheerio, as my children are requesting lunch. Although 'requesting' might suggest that they are being far more polite than they actually are. In fact, 'demanding with menaces' may be more appropriate!
