A few evenings ago - when a group of friends began talking about school days - it amazed me how many stories and emotions came flooding back. Some stories being told about certain teachers and situations were so funny my sides were sore from laughing. Some other stories made me upset even now. I was transported back to the smell of chalk and echoing corridors and it was quite unnerving. I guess we all have highs and lows connected with our school days - 'just wondered how the school children today cope with all the stress...sort of glad I'm working!!

five things that make me happy...

1 a smile from a friend
2 being given a card when it's not my birthday!
3 someone phoning out of the blue for coffee
4 a second hand book bought just for me
5 a loving family
