The little things in life

I really have learnt to appreciate the little things in life small thing like the few mintues snuggled on the sofa with Stephanie this evening while she read her school reading books, or the smile on her face when I surprised her by picking her up from school this afternoon. Being a teacher it is not something I get to do very often I really love to pick her up and see her surprise when I do.

I have spent this evening trying to find an open light house to visit with Stephanie. I have visited one with her before but she doesn't remember. Her class are going to be looking at the Katie Morag stories and looking at islands and lighthouses etc as part of this ( she bought a curriculum newsletter home with her today). None of the lighthouses nearby are open til March so we will have to visit towards the end of this learning. They will also be looking at lifeboats, I know one place locally where we can visit lifeboats, one of the perks of living not far from a major docks- there are lots of boats in all varieties to explore. So will visit with her very soon.

  1. I don't know where you are in the country, but this could be of use?

    1. we are several hours drive from there, would be perfect though. I wonder if I can stretch the finances to a couple of days away in half term....
