Autumn heatwave

Wow, I've never known it to be soooo hot in April! We had a temp of 38 last week Friday with a Bergwind-it was stiffling! The coldfront was due to follow, it's overcast but not freezing and no rain. This does not bode well for winter.

Well, I'm back in the classroom again...I'm working at the Primary School till August in a Maternity relief post - such a difference! I'm teaching grade 6s and have 24 in the class! No backchat, no attitude and no rampant hormones! (After 22 years of teaching grade 8 and 9, this is wonderful!)
One of many March Lily flowers that pop up every year in my garden. I was playing with macros early in the morning.

I love this photo of the youngest gannet. We were chilling at the beach during the Argus  Cycle Race in mid March and I noticed the sunlights dancing in her hair! How many people have paid hundreds to get those self same highlights at their hairdressers?!

During a particularly long session of Internet surfing last week at 2:30am... I couldn't sleep, again, so I got up and made some honey in hot milk, which usually helps, and did some "surfing" before I tried to go back to sleep! I came across this blog Fairy Tangles  Oh Wow! Do yourself a favour and page through her blog - it's amazing what she's done as a Fairy artist and CZT!

I was very relieved to hear that the The DIva's little one is on the mend, wishing her and her family all the best in the weeks to come. Her challenge for this week is called Laura's Aura's, and I though it very fitting as she obviously has an Aura of her own that has positive energy! You really are an inspiration Laura.
I managed to do the Challenge this week...AND enter it on time!
