It is my busy season as a relief teacher - winter brings sick children and teachers. This year I have invested in the Flu jab and so far have avoided anything more serious than a sniffle. I have been fortunate to spend time in the junior school this term and I love it. This has come as a surprize as I previously only taught at the Senior end of primary school. I am enjoying watching how excited children are about reading, maths, writing their stories.
As a result I have been a virtual sewer, reading all about others sewing through blogs and Stitchers Guild posts. I have planned entire wardrobes in my mind and to accompany this I have bought fabric, notions, tools and a new toy. My favourite store is the fabulous Global Fabrics now renamed The Fabric Store and I have been busy shopping up a storm.
