1) 7 of my GCSE English students got a grade C at Foundation Level! Yey! Congrats to them πŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜Ž (big hugs to those that didn’t make it).

2) The amazing Sweet Dreams charity diary team, raising money for the Family Holiday Association, have been working hard behind the scenes to raise a separate pot of sponsorship to print the diaries so we can then sell them. Mary Isherwood and Heather Scott have been fabulous in particular and on paper we have now covered the cost of printing!!! Yeyyyy!!! πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘

3) Nearly all teacher models who are still going to submit a photo for the diary have passed one over now. Yeyyyy!!!! πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ … Just a few stragglers left: come on, you can do it 😘

4) We’ve now raised Β£635 in the justgiving pot for the FHA at the time of writing, which is great considering this is extra to the diaries themselves! Yeyyyy!!! πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ add to this amazing and accruing amount at https://www.justgiving.com/FHASweetDreamsCalendar2015/ 😘😘😘

5) We’re a step closer to making the final decision on the colours of the diary cover… Yeyyyy!!! πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ Don’t scoff! This is an important issue 😘 see the range of choice in the image below …

6) The sale of my house has finally gone through to exchange of contracts!!! Yes!!! Contracts have actually been exchanged!! Yeyyyy!!!! πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ OMG about flipping time too πŸ™ˆπŸ™ŠπŸ™‰

7) I’ve booked a removal van for the day before completion… !!! Yeyyyy!!!! πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ But wasn’t able to tell the removal firm where I was moving to because I still haven’t found a new place yet! True story. I’ve got two weeks… πŸ™ˆπŸ™ŠπŸ™‰

8) I’ve finished marking and giving final feedback on all the MSc final draft theses before the deadline (22nd August)!!! Yeyyyy!!! πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ Now it’s just up to those guys to pull it out of the bag and submit on time themselves πŸ‘€

9) @MartynReah asked me to write a guest blog for his blog at: http://martynreah.wordpress.com/2014/08/21/guest-post-7-carol-webb-cazzwebbo/ πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ This was of course an honour and a privilege! Thank you, Martyn. πŸ’»πŸ“

10) @JulesDaulby asked me to join her with her kids at the ResearchEd conference in London on 6th September πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ Again, an honour and a privilege and I’m getting my loom bands ready as I write 😘 (more info about the conference at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/researched-2014-national-conference-tickets-11117852797?aff=eorg&nomo=1 )

Have a great Friday, folks, and an even better weekend!!! I’ll be out flat hunting πŸ™ˆπŸ˜˜

      1. Sadly, it’s just too far (would mean too early a morning start) and adds up to too many of your Earth Pounds.
        However, should such an event occur again, I shall save up.


      2. Gaggles of us lassies should really get head together to share cheap dorm rooms or family rooms at budget hotels or hostels!
