Eat your words
I am a veggie table
A table made of veg,
There's so much fruit upon me
All living on the edge,
Life is hard
But so are plates
And tea can be quite hot,
And vegetarian poets
Make me nervous quite alot.

I have been having nearly fainting spells lately so I had a blood test and the results came back clear. Therefore, the only other reason that people have suggested and I agree, that they are a result of stress. So now it's my mission to find ways to de-stress. I know that I can gain strength through Jesus building me up and giving me peace in my quiet times with him but is there any other actions that I could be doing that could lead to the disappearance of my fainting spells along with the stress?

Acting since I left school: I was asked to be the one of the main characters in a performance my church was doing with kids club. I played a troubled young teen who didn't feel worth anything due to events in her life that made her feel that way, until she meets Jesus who isn't what she expected. It was so great to feel the buzz again that always fills me when I am doing acting. I'm definately not gonna stop continuing to carry on that passion of mine!
Cakes: I was watching the tv programme 'cook yourself thin' which attracted me because they had the motto of not dieting but cook healthier. There was this cake recipe that just looked so delish I had to try it out. Also, it included a courgette in the recipe and the woman claimed that you couldn't taste it. Well I found that strange and wanted to find out for myself. So I grabbed my friend maria, we put on our pinnys and got to work. I hadn't baked in ages coz my mum doesn't really have time to bake cakes. I was sooooo pleased! :) they turned out terrific, sweet and presentable..luvly jubbly! annnndddd...she was correct, you couldn't taste the courgette.

Here is the final product of all my teaching:
It was an experience I will never forget, full of so many different emotions. I definately underestimated how much paperwork there was going to be..I was swamped! I enjoyed teaching year one when they behaved lol It gave me an opportunity to be creative which I liked and I thank God for being with me always. I will miss them, all of their very different characters and maybe some day I may just bump into one of the little treasures, I doubt they will remember me though. My confidence grew and my timing in the lessons improved but as always there will be tons more to learn. On to key stage two...but I'll have my much needed holiday first ;)

Sorry about the lack of bloggage lately, I'm afraid it's going to come to you all at once today.

The uv party with lots of uv light
my purple painted heart glowing so bright,
Lots of work with dedication
but it was time to change the station,
Dance like I've never danced before
The beat was something we couldn't ignore,
Drunk sports students pinch her bum
Waiting for the opportunity to get some,
One or two drinks but no more
otherwise you would hit the floor,
Giggling with all your friends
all looking stunning in the latest trends,
My camera was at the ready
trying to keep my hand steady,
Getting lost in the midst of time
Going with the song my body was full of mime,
Happy as Larry but it was time to go,
The traffic on the way home was super slow,
The next day in the SU there was no trace,
only the last crumpled cup in that small deserted space.

A rose says I thought of you
A rose says you're beautiful
A rose says thankyou
A rose says I appreciate you
A rose says you're important
A rose says God is good
A rose says you mean the world to me
A rose says I care about you
A rose says life is better with you here
A rose says sorry for when I've been annoying
A rose says remember me
A rose says the world is full of good too
A rose says you're unique
A rose says I haven't forgotten what's important
A rose says I Love You
A rose says...things that are just too hard to explain

As part of my spring term assignments for my primary teaching degree I have been researching storytelling, the history of it, what makes a good tale to tell and what make a fabdabbydozy storyteller. Today I came across this gorgeous quote that took my attention and thought I should share it before I forget it.
'The Storyteller's Creed I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death. '- Robert Fulghum
Even though by the end of these assignments I will probably feel sick of anything to do with storytelling for a while, from what I have been reading already I can honestlly say that I didn't realise how important storytelling is. Especially when I saw that many historians,anthropologists and psycholoists suggest that storytelling is one of the many things that defines humanity.
Now I have to find a story to tell myself (Any ideas people?!)and because I love acting, hopefully this will have a positive effect on my storytelling technique!
See, I've been getting so lost in the world of storytelling that I have forgotten about my gammon knuckle cooking away downstairs!!
