I have broken up today for my Summer Holidays, no school for six weeks. I have mixed feelings, I am glad to be work free but I will miss the children that have moved on. I am one of those people that hate goodbyes! We had a great morning going to an Outdoor Education Centre and learning 'Bush Craft' skills. We made shelters, including carving our own tent pegs. The kids also built and started their own fires with 'Fire Sticks'. Then they made bread dough and twizzled it around a stick to cook in the camp fire. I got delegated the job of making three mugs of tea and three hot chocolates with a pint of water, no milk and no spoon! I am good but I aint that good! Black tea was revolting. We ended the morning toasting marshmallows and burning our tongues! Delicious. It really was great fun but the downside is I have a few unpleasant insect bites from the bugs in the woods. Two of which are on my right hand and are nicely swollen, they are very itchy and aching. I am also no martyr to pain or discomfort. I have managed to spin some more Yak hair today, I really love it. Tomorrow I should find time to learn how to Navajo Ply, I chickened out at the weekend and taught myself Andean ply instead. That was not easy and caused me to use a few unmentionable words, when my camel ended up in a spaghetti heap on the floor! Navajo plying looks even trickier to me. I have enjoyed reading your comments about my spinning escapades, thank you very much for stopping by, making me laugh and offering your support and compliments. Blogland is such a lovely place. Wishing everyone a happy Summer if you can find it where you are!
