Sunshine on a Rainy Day

What better way to cheer up a miserable rainy day than a splash of colour.

A couple of Saturdays ago I took myself off to the park for an hour with my camera and the instruction booklet and had a fiddle with the settings. One of my favourite pictures was this daffodil, the yellow trumpet so zingy against all the green.

The train station which G and I use each work day has a newly formed group of volunteers who have started to bring some tidiness and colour to the platforms, I love the red of these anemones.

These evening I walked home wearing a jacket and carrying an umbrella, very different to the Tuesday a few weeks back when the sun was shining and we went for a walk along the shore. This was the view I was trying to catch

but this was the result on my first attempt! Cheeky!

And to end, another photo of S pulling possibly the most bizarre smile ever, stood next to her photo on display at school a week ago when she was named as the Superstar of the week because
'S has really raised her effort this week. This has meant she has learnt to do thinhgs much better than she did before. She worked brilliantly on word problems, wrote an effectivel Free Write and showed passion in answering questions about what she had been reading. Great work S!
