Weekend etc

My first week in my new school has gone very well indeed.I have been welcomed warmly by staff,children and parents alike.I am delighted that I went there.
This week I have spent part of my leaving gift money as follows-
We played this game with friends over the summer for the first time,really enjoyed it and so I decided to buy a copy myself.
A fascinating story told well  as a graphic novel.
A excellent book which accompanied  a splendid Radio 4 series of programmes (still available on BBC radio iplayer) about Germany.

Finally my middle daughter has opened an Etsy shop called the Spotty Seal to sell handmade decorative items.Do pop over  for a look-

Hobby front update later this weekend...


  1. Tradgardmastare,

    It seems as if things have begun to turn the corner for you, and I hope that your situation continues to improve; you certainly deserve it to!

    All the best,


  2. Excellent, nice to hear you're settling in.

  3. Just spent part of our game's group's gathering playing "Ticket to Ride" today. It's a great game. We also played a game called "Kill Dr. Lucky."

    Good news about new beginnings as well. Good for you!

  4. That's great news about your first week at your new school!

    I got to play Ticket to Ride (US version) and Kill Dr. Lucky a few years ago and enjoyed both games.
