It’s been all about rain this week, although as I type this, we are actually experiencing a lovely sunshiny day. At night, it’s all about the wind. You’d hear it howling like ghosts, or worse, poltergeist creating havoc outside your window. It is that loud, sometimes even frightening.
In the mornings, when I take Doc out for a walk, Peppa Pig and her friends would think of the headland as paradise since it has been awashed with muddy puddles all over, not to mention wet grass. Perfect for squelching around in your wellies. Doc loves it. Then again, he loves the headland no matter what the season/weather/condition is.
That sums up our week pretty much. Wet outside, warm inside our little cottage. With my husband, busy marking essays, replying to emails/complains/demands from his students. I sometimes hear him grumble, grumble from where he sits. You will find me too, with my computer on my lap, sometimes on the couch, on our bed, with the duvet warming my legs, or in the kitchen sipping coffee with Doc under the table, warming my feet. He makes an excellent foot-rest 😉
This week my ModPo course ends, and by Monday, there will be a last live farewell Webcast. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the course and looking forward to doing it again next year. The course has taught me a lot, opened my mind a lot, especially when it comes to Conceptual Poetry, which I still struggle with, but can now appreciate it more now. Anyway, so the weather actually has been a nice backdrop to the course. Therefore, my chosen word of the week is: RAIN!
In other news, last night was our first ever parent-teacher meeting at little T’s school. We knew she was doing well, but was really pleased to actually hear it from her teacher. For awhile, it even felt like she was talking about a different girl! Sometimes T can still be shy around people, especially strangers. When I mentioned this to Miss O (T’s teacher), she said, shy? Not at all. But then again, I guess it also goes to show how much comfortable she is with her teachers and classmates. So that’s definitely another #loudnproud moment.
In the UK, the charity “Children in Need” with the help of the schools hold a yearly fundraising event and this year’s theme is “Super-heroes”. Although it is optional, the children have a choice whether to go to school in a costume and of course, little T chose to go dressed as Elsa. For those who think Elsa isn’t a super-hero, I suggest you keep your thoughts to yourself, or else I’ll call you a rotten egg 😉 And let me remind you that Elsa has super-powers, she can freeze people, change summer into winter, make a cute snowman who loves cuddles, and she can make castles made out of ice for goodness sake!
So you better, shut-up or else my Little T will FREEZE YOU!
