  4. My son and daughter chose a name each. Treacle, my daughters chicken has been laying each day, small but not tiny, perfect eggs. Their new home arrived yesterday, and we built it tonight. The girls are tucked up nice and warm on their new roosting bars. Although the henhouse is quite small. It will seem a mansion compared to their rabbit hutch, and eventually they will have the but the rabbit is in there at the moment, and loves it. I can't wait until the weekend when we can play properly.
  5. After a long time away from the board following our final two chickens being caught by foxes, on Friday night we were given the opportunity for two chickens of fate. A neighbour knocked on the door and asked if we would like two RIR bantams. He breeds banties and these were extras he needed to sell. They are currently in a rabbit hutch, awaiting a new cage tomorrow as the rabbit is in the eglu and spent some time on our lawn in the dog cage to get some air. We even had our first this morning! The best thing is, our daughter who was scared of the big girls loves the banties. So back to the world of chicken keeping and welcome to Treacle and Mocha.
  6. In the pump rooms? Longleat? The Roman Baths?

  8. Just wanted to send you and your family my heartfelt sympathy, my thoughts and prayers are with you all xx
  9. Address: 9 Rue De La Grande Chaumiere, Paris, 75006, FR Phone: +33 1 43266086 Fax: +33 1 43547370 Welcome to BEST WESTERN Villa Des Artistes! The BEST WESTERN Villa des Artistes is in the heart of the Left Bank with a car park nearby. Featuring an interior garden, all rooms with air-conditioning, renovated arty rooms, free WiFi access, mini-bar and satellite television. We offer a buffet breakfast for a nominal fee, lounge, 24-hour front desk, elevator and complimentary newspaper. We stayed in the hotel above - it was lovely, we went in February 2010 and it was in walking distance to Montparnasse - well worth a night time trip to see the Eiffel Tower lit up from the top floor (cost only a few £'s in tesco vouchers too). There were lots of lovely restaurants nearby to sit and watch the world go by, and the hotel rooms are painted in the style of famous artists. We had a Dali room and it was amazing!! We didn't have breakfast, as we wanted to munch a croissant and coffee at the local cafes, but the hotel service was great, nothing was too much trouble. The metro was about 5 mins walk away.
  10. Head of House and English Teacher in an 11-18 comprehensive. It is the best job in the world, and gives me the hols to spend with my own two monsters - and the chooks of course! I feel privileged every day to enjoy going to work as much as I do, nothing beats having a job you love.
  11. Most of the games for little ones include elements of counting, organising facts, learning how things happen, and I agree, used properly, they are a great educational tool. 6 year olds today need a completely different take on the world, and technical know-how is crucial. My 7 year old loves the nintendogs type programme - teaching her how to care for an animal without me needing to nag! She also loves the traditional mario type games. Her favourite is mama cooking. I think a DS is a great 6 year old toy, they don't need to be a substitute for real life - in fact my kids have both had them since 6, but only choose to play with them when we are on a long car journey, or at a function when they need to be quiet, the rest of the time they sit gathering dust on the bookshelf. When used they are invaluable to us and a great way for the kids to prevent boredom.
  12. Totnes is lovely, quite hippyish and alternative, but a friendly feel, however it can get mobbed with tourists in the summer. Ashburton is smaller and a bit more cut off, but the local secondary school is brilliant and would be my first choice if I moved back down that way. Both are lovely, but also also miles from Coombe Martin and North Devon - it is a small county, but connected via the moor roads which can be a nightmare in summer and poor weather. Good luck with your move.
  13. They could have mixed corn and any left over greens from your neighbour. They will be fine with just layers pellets for your holiday though - they may even appreciate you more as a result!
  14. The worst of it is knowing that if you wait until the last week of the hols for uniform most places have almost sold out, but 6 weeks is a lot of growing time in this house!
  15. Beware The Big Sheep - we nearly returned with chickens and a puppy! Was a lovely day out though
  16. Depending on the school OFSTED can be that bad! You get judged as a professional on a 20 minute snapshot of your teaching and student learning. The feedback is to the Head not to you as an individual, and is so not relevant to your own personal development. Teachers at one of my previous schools who during inspection got "Satisfactory" were made to feel really bad, as if they had failed the school. The amount of planning, admin and preparation for 2 days is ludicrous. We had the school open all weekend 7.30-10pm, with staff "invited" to come in and sort classrooms etc... Teachers face regular observation anyway, as part of their professional development, our results are scrutinized, with no account being paid to individual students circumstances or work ethic, just a judgement on whether this makes us "good" or "bad". However, the teaching, the students and the sheer delight of watching someone who has learnt something new outweighs all the negatives, I am sure when this week is over your friend will be able to relax and enjoy the last few weeks of term.
  17. Sorry to here you are having such a bad time, I was in the same position 5 years ago and handed in my notice - best thing I ever did. I now work at a great school, can teach, not crowd control and my depression is on the wane. I would write to the schools you want to work in and see if they will put you on their regular supply list. I know we stopped using agencies as they sent some awful teachers, but we have a bank of supply that are known in the school, respected by the kids and are great. The right job will come up, you will lose those extra pounds in no time and the depression will ease. Don't forget, you are truly inspirational in what you have done. It takes a brave person to hand in their notice like that, and a strong will to lose all that weight and maintain. I really believe that things happen for a reason, and that it will all work out soon. Take care hun x
  18. I just followed a friends link on Facebook, and it took me to these books about finance for children. The first front cover I saw: http://www.facebook.com/pages/MALT-Publishing/374022839209 Never seen an eglu on a storybook before - and it's a , My kids would love it.
  19. Tutti Frutti, the same happened to me on a different forum that was updated, and their IT person told me to delete all cookies from the cache and then reboot - it worked a treat. Possibility maybe? Loving the new site - very smart.
  20. What a brave little girl. Please tell her so from me. My two wouldn't be that heroic.
  21. He is very cute. How old is he? Will you get to meet him sometime?
