Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's Back To School We Go - And a FREEBIE!

Tonight I'm feeling blue. Fitting, because it's a Blue Moon tonight, but also because tomorrow is officially the first day of Autumn and I go back to school on Monday. And it's more than a little fitting that it's happening today, the day of the funeral of one of my heroes - it's like the moon is paying its own tribute...

Walking with the stars now, Neil

We don't seem to have had a summer at all in the UK - it's rained since, well since.... I can't remember, it's been that long! For those of you who managed to catch some of the Olympics, I admit that it did look pretty good - and fortune smiled upon us for that 16 days. But the Olympics was in London where the weather is always better than the rest of the country, and I live 130 miles back the other way in the mountains where it always rains (or snows in winter).... I love Autumn, but I always feel just a smidgeon melancholy...

This weekend will be hectic. I've been lumbered with arranging a school reunion which, after four months on the case, is finally happening tomorrow (allelujah!). Sunday will be planning day for the new school year. Isn't it funny that, after having 6 weeks off school and full of good intentions to get on top of things, I've left it until last minute - again! Is anyone else like me on this one..?

So, if anyone else out there is feeling the effects of the Blue Moon tonight, I've got a little freebie to cheer you up. Click on the picture to bag your copy.

It's the latest design in my Open House Slideshow range - cute stars. It's fully animated and ready to run on a loop - all you have to do is put in your information and you're good to go! If stars doesn't fit in with the theme of your room there are plenty more to choose from in my shop - pirates, cheerleaders, carnival, jungle (giraffes, snakes and zebra), owls and cute birds.

Enjoy the moon tonight - it won't happen again for a while.


  1. When I click on your freebie, it sends me to a job search site?

  2. Hi. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I've checked all the links and they seem to be working fine. The word "Freebie" is not the link to the download - it looks like a link but it will take you to an advert as I have Inlinks Advertising enabled on my site. Be sure to click on the picture of the slideshow to download your copy.

    I hope this helps. Do let me know if you still have problems with this.


  3. Sue, your blue moon quote gave my hubby and I goosebumps!

    1. Thanks Fern. I never had much interest in all things Space until I started teaching it as a topic to my Year 3 (G2) children over 4 years ago. Now I find the whole thing awesome, and the achievements of these men never fail to amaze me. What courage it must have taken to open that door and step out into the unknown! I for one will always appreciate Neil, Michael and "Buzz" for opening up a whole new world to me.



Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message. I read every single one and try to reply to as many as possible.

I Love Amazon
