When Time Passes By!

Hello blogpals! How are you doing? I haven't been able to decide what to blog about - so many things, so little time - that's why I decided to show you a bit of this and a bit of that.

The picture above shows my son's buddies. We played 'school' with them one afternoon. Well, like mother, like son. I do hope he chooses something else though -it's soooo exhausting. (tough day yesterday; I'll spare you the details as this is my place to focus on the bright side of life - see banner)

Well, "don't you just love New York in the fall? Makes me wanna buy school supplies". I know what you're thinking: "has she gone nuts? N.Y. isn't in Greece". No, I haven't gone nuts, not yet anyway!!! :)
That's a quote from my favourite film.

Haven't you guessed yet?



Who said it? You, sitting in front of your laptop?
You're right. "You've Got Mail"!!!
Sorry if I tired you with that but I can't help it; it makes me happy.

So on that note, I stayed up late Monday evening, night rather to sort out my material - I should have done it during the summer break but I couldn't (some of you know why).
I beautified my folders...

... and added smiley stickers on them.

One more thing I like doing when the weather becomes cooler and we don't go out as much is to leaf through my museum books. I have a whole shelf of them. The painting below is...

... from the Vincent Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam. I'm not satisfied with my pictures these days. If I manage to take some decent ones I'm thinking of making a museum series with, say, one museum a week, with links to their websites and everything. What do you say?

Little one wanted to play with his 'professions' puzzle. He's had it for two years and never gets bored with it. I don't mind doing it again and again as we talk about more things every time and
he enriches his vocabulary (teacher talk, sorry!)

These are my two favourite pieces:
the watering can

and the mail ( I loooove getting mail - but you already know that!)

Finally, I proudly present you little one's latest crafts from pre-school.
He didn't use to draw specific images, just fill the paper with colour in a second and leave -sometimes with amazing results if I may add. But now he's making faces. The line for the mouth is supposed to be straight; this is not a sad deer!!! The colourful stripes have the days of the week written on them.

I still haven't bought wooden pegs for his display as you can see. I'm looking for the little cute ones.

Although it's still Thursday I'll wish you a Happy Weekend as I know I won't have time to post anything else. I'll see most of you at your lovely blogs though!
Take Care!

I hope you are feeling happier today? Nearly the weekend! I began to train as a teacher of children (I later switched to adults) and remember just how tiring and frustrating teaching practice was so I am there with you. I know what it's like to lose your Mum and although mine died 8 years ago I still miss her so am there with you on that one too. I also know what it is like to live somewhere which isn't where you want to be so again I'm with you. Bon courage as they say in France and keep posting as and when you can I enjoy hearing about your day.

Looks like little one has some nice buddies to play w/ there - & he's quite the artist too...I like his work even better than the pictures in the museum book...perhaps you should make your own museum/book ... w/ little one's work :)
