Weekly Round Up

It's been a hectic two weeks - not because of arts and crafts because, as you may have noticed, I've been a bit silent recently. More because the full-time job has upped a pace. I'm a teacher and my year group has been working like crazy. And you know what? I am really proud of what my kids have been achieving. As a treat today we decided to take them to the park, where my class agreed that the best thing to do was probably just to bury me, and then humiliate me by making me wear a silly wig... Unfortunately no one managed to get a photo of the wig (WHAT a shame!!)

When I finally managed to get all the sand from off my clothes and everywhere it had got to, I went off in search of a pomegranate. I've recently discovered Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah, I was told) and made an AWESOME salad with it - edamame, sugar snap peas, feta, pomegranate, quinoa, cucumber with soy/olive oil/lemon dressing. It sounds pretty tame, but somehow the dressing and pomegranate make it simply delicious.

Craftwise: I've been working on a crochet/ knitted bag for what seems like FOREVER now. One day I'll finish it and be able to put up a photo or two... it may even get listed in my Etsy store.  For the moment though, I'm just crocheting away.

And I've just made a new treasury on Etsy - you can see it by clicking here. I've tried to copy and paste it in a few times but each time I have, I lost everything so I have given up on that; wish I was more internet / computer savvy!

One more thing - I am planning a giveaway when I reach 100 followers on this site - it will be randomly picked, all you need to do is follow and make a comment on the giveaway post that will be up. Watch this space!

The people who tell you about the correct pronunciation of the grain are *so good* at burning it into your brain with a very particular scorn. Totally tasty though!
