It is mid year exam week in my household and I'm not enjoying it!!!! I didn't like exams when I was at school and I don't like them any more now!! My HS is not particularly studious, he doesn't enjoy school and has struggled over the years. He certainly doesn't put in as much effort as he could! Each time exams come around I resort to bribery and corruption (whatever works I say!) and make up 'study jars' full of chocolate and lollies that are only allowed to be eaten during studying!! Makes me feel better thinking it works! Only 3 days to go then a few months reprieve!!! Wish me luck!
I was very excited to receive a parcel in the mail today from April - Cake makes the world a better place blog. I was lucky enough to win her giveaway celebrating 200 posts. What a lovely parcel to receive, a gorgeous notebook (how does April know I am an obsessive list maker!), a crossstitch pin which is so intricate, a little heart and the most amazing crossstitch card - her work is just wonderful. Thank you very much April.
