Rose-coloured times

Yesterday was a positively brilliant day filled with the best ever exam results from my students, and the boy had exam success too with a mention in the financial times. Topped off with a fab meal at The Bell with two new friends and neighbours, I have been on cloud nine for the last twenty-four hours.

Good moods do great things, you know.

By request, I’ve posted a little sneak peek here of the new class, Learn Something New Every Day. Remember these are little pages in a small format book, and you’ll realise just how easy it is to achieve an entry every day. {By the way…I know that page includes a little polaroid-style print, but don’t fret—this isn’t something you need! I was just playing with my little instant camera but in the class we explore lots of different ways of getting photos onto your daily pages.}

But because I am in a good mood, I’ve got a free place to give away. You have to comment here to enter. Sometime over this three-day weekend I will put all the names in a jar and draw one to do this course for free. {And I don’t know about you, but when I am shopping, free is my favourite price.} And because I would never want to make something annoying for those of you who signed up straight away {thank you!}, if you comment you will be put in the draw too. If you win, you can choose to give the class to a friend or have a refund of your class fee. It’s all good.

Spread the word!
And have a brilliant weekend.

    Hi Shimelle,
    Very excited to see another class from you, and if you are mad enough to run it at the start of term, I guess I am mad enough to take it (teacher here too)! I think I saw you at V – watching Divine Comedy at the 4 Stage…
