Pay it forward

Last Thursday I received this in the mail. It came from Robyn as part of 'Pay it Forward'. It is beautiful. It arrived at the end of a rotten three weeks and really cheered me up.

For the time being it lives on the top of the bookcase in my work room to remind me not to lose track of what I want to be doing. Thank you.

A Pause

There has been a pause in creativity, or any other any interesting activity, here for a while

Three weeks ago we were informed that OFSTED were coming to visit (College inspectors-for those of you outside the UK) A team of 8 were coming in a fortnight and would stay a week. This translates into two weeks and weekends of preparation, intensive paperwork and learning of statistics and mission statements etc anticipating questions. Than a week of walking on eggshells not knowing if or when they were going to come into your lesson to observe.

However it is done. The weather is glorious. Real life can resume again

Pay It Forward.

One of the things I like about the web is the ability to make connections with people across the globe, the idea of being able to share ideas and techniques and to have a ‘conversation’ with like minded people whom I probably won’t get the opportunity to meet in person.
I also like the idea of sharing not only thoughts and images but also, on a small scale, pieces of ‘real’ work. Which is why I responded to a post on rObfOs ‘s blog on Pay It Forward’.

If you want to join in this is how it works. (It’s a bit like pyramid selling in reverse)
If you leave a comment here I will send the first three people a small handmade gift via snail mail (and post links to those three bloggers). They will then put a post up about Pay It Forward (with a link back to my blog) and will also send on to three more people small handmade gifts via snail mail etc.etc
