A Little Message of Encouragement!

Thursday 9th July

Good morning everybody.  Despite the weather I had a good day yesterday.  I found a way to shine through the grey.  I wonder what today will bring.  I haven't actually got any plans for this afternoon so I have decided to be spontaneous.  I am not very good at that as I like to be organised and plan ahead so I know what's coming, but sometimes it is good to venture out of your comfort zone and try something different.  I will let my son choose something he would like and then I will just see what happens.  Mrs Coster is learning to go with the flow!


Wednesday 7th July

Hello everyone.  Another day, just a bit dull and grey.  What shall we do to brighten up the day.  I recommend getting out some paint and creating a beautiful bright picture, putting on your favourite music and singing and dancing along and cooking something yummy to eat!! If you treat the day like the sun is shining, then you will feel warm and sunny no matter what is going on outside.  

Shine bright today! 


Monday 6th July

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  I enjoyed a long but blustery walk yesterday, followed by some gardening and a yummy chinese for dinner.  I had really started to enjoy doing some simpler things at the weekend in the past few months.  Before I would try to fill them with loads of interesting and different activities, but recently I have slowed down more and found I have have just as much fun without cramming in so much I am exhausted by Sunday night.  Slowing down and taking your time can be a good thing! 


Friday 3rd July

Wow! it's Friday again already.  So the weekend is fast approaching and the days are flying by.  Did you manage to make yesterday great?  I have been looking at all your great class pages.  Your teachers certainly have got you busy.  If you are finding the work a little too tricky to do at home, then why not just try one thing a day.  Pick you favourite looking activity and do just that one to start with.  I am sure after months, you are really missing your teachers and school life, but it is a real test of your determination and strength of character if you can continue to do something, even if you find it hard.  

If you really put your mind to it, you will do more than you thought!!


Thursday 2nd July

Good morning everybody!!  The sun is out, my spirits are high, today is going to be a good day!! if you start positive then hopefully everything will seem brighter.  How are you going to make this Thursday a good day?  I am going to do some school work, do some gardening, cook a health soup for lunch, create some art/craft with my son, chat to my dad on Skype and maybe finish the day snuggled up with my husband watching a film.  I am excited just thinking about it. laugh 

Make today great!!!


Wednesday 1st July

Hello there.  Can you believe it is July!!!!! In some ways the days since school shut seem to have gone on forever, but also seem to have flown by.  How are you filling your days and keeping busy?  I hope you are still trying some home learning.  I know it can seem a bit dull and there are lots of things you would rather do, but a little bit each day will make sure your brain keeps fit and you won;t find it quite so hard when you come back to school.  Maybe set yourself a target, 2 lots of 30 minutes to start with a day and maybe some of the fun activities set by your teachers.  You can then reward yourself with an activity you really enjoy!!

Work out those brains!!


Monday 29th June

Morning all, I hope you had a super weekend.  It was my nieces 2nd birthday so I got to visit her in her garden.  Luckily it didn't rain, but I did really miss giving her a huge birthday hug.  We have also been looking after Reception Classes butterflies.  It has been really fascinating watching them hatch from their chrysalises.  Unfortunately one has come out with a slightly damaged wing, but it is still soooooo beautiful.  Nature is amazing, even when something isn't quite as we would expect it can still be absolutely amazing!

Embrace imperfection!!


Friday 26th June

Happy Friday! Another beautiful day to welcome in the weekend.  Did any of you hear the thunderstorm last night.  The thunder was quite gentle, but I loved listening to the sound of the rain, I find it really relaxing.  There is something quite special about there being rain when it is still really hot, make me think about being on a tropical holiday.  Next time it rains, take some time to stop, get comfy and just listen to the sound it makes.  

Enjoy your weekend!
