Tomorrow is the last day of term, we (myself and my boys) are ready for the holidays now, hopefully we will still be enjoying being together five to six weeks from now !
We have a busy summer holiday agenda planned and I just hope I can fit in some work inbetween ! My youngest son in particular has had a busy final week at school with a summer concert, a 'quad' kids after school sports event (a school team of children who each participate in long distance, short distance running, long jump and throwing, against other schools), a humanities day out at one of the local secondary schools and another day out involving music and sport hosted by the other local secondary school. Today he finished work on his 1960's topic with a fancy dress party with 1960's inspired food.
We had fun putting together a 'hippy' look which worked pretty well. Apparently there was quite a lot of 'food on sticks' at the party including our pineapple, cheese and glace cherry combos which were still hanging about at the end of the party so I am told, presumably not that appetising in 2010 as they were in the 60's !
We have also sorted out our teachers presents and worked out those that have already received a 'Joanna London' mug for the staff room and those that have not !
My youngest son has one more year at our local junior school, the last of my three boys to attend the school, it would be good to create a bespoke mug design featuring the school or such like for staff presents at this time and I must make sure I allow myself enough time next year to plan this.
If you are interested in creating a mug or plate for a special occassion or event either using your own photographs, your designs (childrens drawings perhaps) or wish to commission a design please do get in touch. They really do make special gifts.
If you, like me are entertaining school aged children this summer - enjoy !
