Five for Friday 19/08/2016

Once again I am taking part in doodlebugs linky party Five for Friday. Where I let you all know the  5 important things I have been up to this week.
fiveforfriday2_thumb[3]


Here are the five things I have been up to this week:

Divider 1
I have been reading so many amazing blogs showing beautiful completed classrooms and this week I have been doing..... Nothing! Nothing in my classroom. It looks a mess I am so far from organised you wouldn't believe and I don't even have a plan!!! ARRGGHHH How did this happen?

Never mind breath, breath, breath.... Look at nice pictures of bunnies instead....



Divider 2
For most of this week I have been wanting to smash my computer. All my old products, Master's degree work and personal bits and bobs have been stored on an external hard drive which decided to die!! I was in such a state (The only copy of my dissertation is on there!) Luckily I managed to get it working again (ish) but I am desperate to get everything off of the drive and safely onto the cloud. The drive is so temperamental, each file must be moved one at a time and often crashes in the middle of moving. I've been manually dragging and dropping for 4 days and I'm starting to lose my marbles! And I didn't have many of those to start with!




Divider 3
I made a video using Powtoon. This isn't my first video I have made a few others but this is my first video using this software and I think I really like it.





Divider 4
I have also recently become the proud owner of a brand new car! It is all shiny and new and smells lovely :)






Divider 5

And lastly I have finally got round to sorting out my laundry room! I found so much stuff I had forgotten I had. I love finding things I had forgotten I'd brought it is like a little gift from past me to future me! :)

The Back to School Teacher's Box

So here it is, the end of summer is fast approaching and it is that time of year to start preparations for back to school!

I know, I'm sorry, I didn't want to be the one to say it but somebody had to!

Now I know that there are some fantastic blogs out there to really help prepare you for the first few days back and I will be listing some of them at the end of this post. I wanted to talk to you about something a little bit different.

The Teacher Box



Us teachers sometimes need reminding that we are important too and our health and well being is just as vital as everything else! With that in mind I am asking you to get a teacher box ready at the start of the year to see you through. Here is a list of the items I keep in my teacher box, but feel free to add your own ideas and tell me about them in the comments and don't forget to stock up throughout the year when your supplies run low.

1 - Medicines

Go over board with this because you know the one thing you haven't got will be the one thing you need. Plus it never hurts to have the perfect cure for a fellow teacher in need and have them owe you a favour or two my teacher box medicines include:
  • Paracetamol (or aspirin, not me though I'm allergic!)
  • Throat lozenges
  • Hay fever and allergy tablets and sprays
  • Plasters
  • Heart burn and indigestion tablets
  • Some really nice tissues
  • Extra hand sanitizer
  • Eye drops
  • Cough medicine
  • Lemsip


2 - Nail files

My nails look lovely over the summer and then back to school they break instantly



3 - Sweets, chocolate and biscuits

Enough said....



4- Quick food that keeps

Cereal bars, Cup a Soups, noodles anything that will get you out of forgetting your lunch!


5 - Comfy shoes

If you are anything like me there will come a day when you find in the back of your wardrobe some beautiful, practical, wondrous pair of work shoes that you haven't worn in months; and you will think to yourself 'why haven't I worn these in ages? I forgot I had them!'. Then you will put them on and stroll off to work and the second the kids walk in you will remember why you haven't worn them and you will be in agony all day! Trust me pack the spare shoes! Also shoes break!


6 - A good moisturiser

For those days when your skin really needs you to be kind to it!


7- Something that inspires you

This job can wear us all out and sometimes we need a little reminder. it could be a favourite quote or a beautiful picture or maybe a note from a student. Keep something nearby which reminds you why we do this every day.

So there you have it my teacher box. Please be kind to yourselves this year, remember you are doing  a great job!

Here are a few blogs to checkout for great back to school ideas:


Enjoy the rest of the summer everyone :)
