From my friend in the UK whose daughter set this to her pupils as part of a homeschooling challenge. Thanks, Linda !!

For my trainees, this would be great for an Anticipation Bingo game.

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY MOMENTS

These are scary times. Whenever I switch on the TV, all I encounter on the news is doom, gloom and misery in the light of the Coronavirus. Life and society are having to adapt in ways we could never have imagined possible. And here we all are, self-isolating in our homes and wondering how long this will last, how long can we sustain it, and do we have enough bog roll ??!!

I, for one, can get quite overwhelmed by the enormity of it all and I am sure I am not alone in this. To combat all the bad news, I have decided to look for good news, as amongst all this doom and gloom, there are good news stories emerging – of people helping one another, of kids getting to spend so much quality time with their parents, of simple acts of kindness that can mean so much.

I will be blogging here about Happy Happy Happy Moments that I see, am told about or find on the net and I hope you will enjoy them and that they will give a bit of sunshine in these dark times. If you have any suggestions to share, use the contact button to get in touch.

To begin with, this video of police in Mallorca doing their rounds to check people are respecting the lock-down rules : 

 

And I love this video of keeping kids busy, especially the washing-up bowl roller coaster ride !!

 

And finally for today, this imposed confinement sees me spending much more time in my garden than I would normally. As you can see, there is a lot of work to be done… but that is good because we are going to have a lot of time on our hands !! Being in the garden is my relaxation and I just love fiddling around with my plants. So that is my Happy Happy Happy Time !!

A hilarious story book

My little ones at my local library Storytime club loved this book ! It is a real pleasure to run the sessions for my group of 4-6 year olds – reading stories and singing songs. Not sure who enjoys it more – me or them ??

And this book is made even better when you learn who the author, Tom Fletcher actually is !! He is a musician I have seen on the telly, without knowing who he was, obviously. Just found this adorable video of his son singing one of my favourite songs, with a cameo of the guy himself. Adorable !! Of course, families with three boys – always got to be a hit with me !!
