Sorry it has been a while since I have posted a blog. I have been very busy. Firstly I have become a radio star. Well nearly! I did a short review on the new James Bond film on the local radio station. Was very impressed that I said I would do it. Normally I shy away from things like that and think I'm just going to make an idiot of myself.

I have also been teaching. Have done four days altogether, really enjoying it.

Have been shopping for Christmas like crazy. Feeling a little left out so treated myself to a top and a sparkling ring from eBay.

Have had a fantastic week. Hopefully next will be similar.

Working again.

Just finished an afternoon teaching. Not the greatest class. They were a hand full the say the least. Never mind I only taught them for an hour and got paid £50.
I'm still Chiristmas shopping by the internet. Everyone is going to be getting second hand tat from ebay. Car is still playing up. Struggling what to get the men in my lift for Christmas. I find men always much harder to buy for. Anyone got any ideas. Also want to get some boards games for family. Anyone know any good ones. We tend to like games like Pictionary. We have also started to play cribbage.

See you

Bond. James Bond


Went to see James Bond on Thursday. I really enjoyed it. I was a bit skeptical of Daniel Craig as James Bond but it wasn't too bad. Don't think he will be taking the Bond crown off Sean Connery though.

The first 10 minutes of the film were the best. Bond was chasing a bad guy, who is real life is a street runner (runs and jumps on the roof tops around London) It is pretty amazing to watch, at one point he climbs straight up a steel girder.

The only downfall was that it didn't feel very much like a James Bond film. The film it self was entirely gadget free. I know that the last couple of Bond films had become gadget obsessed and were highly unbelievable. But I think Bond does need one or two toys to help him.

This Bond is much more grittier and darker. We get to see a different side to Bond. As it is a prequel it makes to audience realise what happen to Bond to make him the cold person he is in his other films.

I also like the fact that it is very near to the book, only updated slighty.

A must see.

Teaching at last.

I had a lovely day. The school I was at was great and a nice one to have my first day teaching in as there was plenty of support available. I was teaching year two. They were a fantastic class. Really pleased with myself that I managed to get through the day without having to go into the cupboard and hide from the kid or worse still cry. I did have to make up a PE lesson on the spot I had to relate weather and dance!!! We all pretended to be a hurricanes. Role on my next supply day.

Job at last.

This photo was taken at a nearby church last year.

This photo was taken at a nearby church last year.
It has been a day for good news today. First I passed my MOT. Then I get a phone call asking me if I wanted to do supply in a school tomorrow then I make a carrot cake for the first time and it tastes lovely. Fantastic day.

I'm a bit nervous about tomorrow. I'm teaching year two , hopefully they won't be doing anything to tasking.

Going to see the new James Bond film tomorrow night with John. I have stayed away from all the hype so if won't spoil it for me. I've read the book but often the books and the films have nothing in common.

We let you know what I think.

Invited out

I have been invited to London for a friends birthday. Dead excited about it. I love London. Used to go quite often when I was at uni in Bedford. Her birthday is just before Christmas as well, so every thing in all sparkling and festive. Last year we when to the Clink museum, wine tasting, the tower bridge experience and tower of London. This year Shel was on about going to the Tate modern and playing on the slides or the BBC experience. If anyone has any ideas let me know. If Holly and John is reading this you are also invited. Katie we will meet you there.

Car trouble.


Took my car for a MOT yesterday. It failed miserably. Feeling sad now. Luckily my Dad is helping me fix it.

I'm looking forward to the new James Bond film. Really big James Bond fan. I would make an ace bad guy.

I'm still searching for a job. Have a few places to ring on Monday. I keep forgetting that schools are closed at the weekend.

I feel quite happy and cheerful today. Which is quite a pleasant why to feel. I'm normally a happy person anyway but today seems extra special and I don't know why. Maybe some thing terribly exciting is going to happen.

I didn't get up till 10 I love lay in it is the best time of the day. That little bit of time when you are not really awake or asleep and you can remember what you dreamt about. Mummmm. I also like the time when you are just feeling asleep. May be I'm just lazy!!!

I had the weirdest dream. I dream that my Dad and I had a plane. A very special plane. We were invited to go to a radio station and show off the plane. John can with us and Dad was late getting there. Because I didn't want the plane to get a car park ticket I put a hat on it to disguise it. I bit later on a swapped the hat for a moustache!!! Any way we flew it away a bit and it crashed. But we had all safely ejected.

Wonder what it means? I had been watching a James Bond film that evening so maybe it is to do with that. Maybe that is why I woke up happy?

love Sam.

Lovely Weekend

I had a lovely weekend away. John took me to Yorkshire to a village called Settle. It was extremely pretty. I really enjoyed myself. We just chilled out. It was nice to spend some time with just the two of us.

On Saturday we walked around the village (which didn't take long). Then we walk up from the village round to Attamire scar. John wanted to take some photos of entrances of caves which were situated around there. I just enjoyed the walk, though I did moan on the up hill bits.

On Sunday we went into to Stainforth and had a look at Stainforth bridge, the stepping stones and the waterfalls along the river. Spend a while amusing ourselves by watching salmon trying to jump up the four foot waterfall. We then continued to walk up hill and see Catrrig falls. They were well worth the steep walk up.

Then in the afternoon we when to White Scar caves, which are show caves.

Have a fantastic time. Thanks to John.

The interviews are over. The Yesterday when really well. I was quite pleased with myself. The lesson I had to teach didn't go so good though. Heard this morning that I didn't get that job. I think I was expecting to much on the first interview I get to get the job. I did however have a lovely time at the school and it did seem like a great place to work.

Today was for supply teaching. Hopefully they will be able to at least give me two days a week. We shall see.

John is taking me away for the weekend, which is nice of him. Though it is me driving and arranging the b&b. It will be nice to get away after sure a rubbishy week. We are going to go to Settle in Yorkshire. It is really nice and pretty therefore. We are meant to spending Saturday wandering around the town and probably eating a great deal. Sunday we are going walking. I'm so looking forward to it.

It is official!! I am now a lady of leisue!! Or as Holly would say Dole Scum!!

Last day of work today. Though I thought my last day was on Monday, they kindly told me this dinner time that I am to use up all the holidays I have been saving and finish today. Wasn't best pleased. Even worse when I left this evening, there wasn't even a thank you, a goodbye or a good luck. Quite angry. I hope they don't get their bonues.

Fingers crossed for tomorrow.
