It's been a while since I've used the Camera+ app - there's an update to it (not sure when) called Clarity - nice result to pictures.

Day 107 - 3 macs & the Easter Bunny

End of term = time to take home the macs for a clean up, back up and check up. The Easter Bunny has gone bye-byes already!

Emma came into school and did some knitting while the kids watched (worked and watched).

Now that Mat's finished his chemo he's back with us - him and his shoes - these are just a few of them.

Day 104 - I'm so pretty, witty & wise!

As I was walking down for my massage I stopped to talk with this fellow.

Screen shot of the announcement from Core about the 2011 eFellows. I had resigned myself to not being accepted and so was overjoyed at getting the phone call to say I was in. Looking forward to some challenging and inspirational work with my fellow eFellows!

Day 100 - Two trees

Day 100 - Two trees, originally uploaded by dragonsinger.

I spent a lot of time at the start of last year when I got my new camera trying to get a decent photo of these trees but they were always too dark. Pro HDR fixes that problem nicely.

Day 99 - Liquorice

Can I just say nom nom nom! The liquorice lady was in at school on Thursday.

Day 98 - We should be dancing

This young chap is in the neighbouring class. We have 'words' every Monday lunchtime about his lunch and what he has (or hasn't) eaten. He can tell some quite creative 'stories' about why he should or shouldn't eat a certain item. In this photo he is dancing around behind me and a couple of visiting teachers while we watch/listen to the new school band. I couldn't resist filming him in action.

Day 97 - Homeward Bound

Day 97 - Homeward Bound, originally uploaded by dragonsinger.

After two days of full on parent interviews the boss informed us that he didn't want to see anyone still at school after 3:30pm. So, every obedient, here I am homeward bound.

Day 96 - Umbrellas

Day 96 - Umbrellas, originally uploaded by dragonsinger.

Spotted in a local shop owned by one of our parents - I love the cat umbrella. (Lending a new meaning to raining cats and dogs maybe?)

Day 95 - iPad fun

Do you get the message that the kids in my class like to use the iPad?

Day 92 - Eye Eye

I bought these eyes from the Warehouse so that Emma could stick some onto the monsters.

Day 91 - Glee Club Rehearsal

Something to be said about having a classroom looking out into the quad - we got to be an impromptu audience during the rehearsal. (Check the video here: )

Day 90 - Sunset silhouette

I took this on the way down to pick up my fish'n'chips - great shot I thought.
