8th Jan 2014: Operation Hopscotch
I didn’t manage to get outside much today – too busy with our Toastmasters Club meeting and collecting a 2nd hand Amp so I can play my EWI – Electronic Wind Instrument – again (the last amp has a disconnected plug stuck in the input socket due to an accident involving a microphone, a small child and temporary loss of balance). So here’s a humorously healthy picture, courtesy of Miranda Hart – highly relevant and with which I agree wholeheartedly 🙂 I believe it’s even zoom-able…

This is Day 8 of a 30 Day Post-a-Healthy-Picture challenge

Having a giggle
May 3, 2013

havingagiggleSon: In Gigglebiz on CBeebies people are always cooking and, every time they cook, they put one of Tony’s things in – like his old boots, or his socks, or his tie, or his trousers!

Mum: That wouldn’t taste very nice would it?

Son: No – and do you know why they do it? Because it’s on Gigglebiz and that’s where they do lots of stuff that’s funny – lots of silly stuff!

Storytelling Man
March 19, 2013

storytellingmanD: We had a new man come into our class today. He was the story man – he read us stories.

Me: Did he? Who was that then? Was it someone’s dad?

D: I can’t remember his name. I don’t know if it was someone’s dad.

Me: Was it good?

D: Yes!

Me: Did he just read stories to your class?

D: No, he read to the whole school.

Me: In the hall?

D: No, he went to all the classrooms.

Me: Wow, that must have taken him a long time. Did he read the same stories to all the classes?

D: I don’t know… Yes! He did, because he said in another class he asked what you should do with babies and a boy said, “Put them in the bin!” And he said, “That’s wrong isn’t it? You don’t put babies in the bin!”

Me: That’s true. What did you say?

D: I didn’t say anything, he didn’t choose me. It was really funny when he said “LOOK! There’s something wrong with my fingers: Open! [D closes fingers] Close! [D opens fingers] Open! [D closes fingers] Close! [D opens fingers] Open! [D closes fingers] Close! [D opens fingers] That’s funny isn’t it?

Me: Yes, they’re doing the opposite of what you’re saying.

Me: He talked to me at the end when we had snack time – I said “You’re funny!” and he said “Thank you. You’re funny too.” Then I said “Thank you. you’re funny!” Then he said “You’re funny!” And I said “You’re funny!” Then “You’re funny!” And “You’re funny!” And I left to go out for break time before he could say anything. Then he walked past me later in the playground and said “You’re funny!”

Me: Is he going to come in every week?

D: Not EVERY week, no. Just sometimes.
