Selfie?

So this would be a selfie (just discovered what that is). Except my six year old took it. She knows her way round my phone better than I do.

So why?

I got my hair done yesterday. Grey strands gone! I rather like it!

http://klsullie78.wordpress.com/2013/08/23/onward-and-upward/ I enjoyed every minute.

And, Simon, http://isimonfiction.wordpress.com/about/ no one even questioned my writing in the middle of the hairdressers. 🙂

A lovely relaxing time was had and I managed to do some writing in the hairdressers. No grey and a book review done. I call that a score.

  1. Good Lord that’s an intriguing photo… I want one of those CSI type things to spin the photograph around and see the face 🙂

    Thank you again for the review, sincerely x

    1. Tell me about it. I don’t know how they know so much. No fear, I guess. They just go for it. And I still don’t have a lock on my phone. Last time it was my son’s big toe. I didn’t post a picture of that one. Too gross! x

    1. I might let you if you come visit!
      That will be the only day it looks like that – straight from the hairdressers. Afterwards, it’s wash and shake and go. Hate ‘doing’ hair.x

      1. Well if you dont choose me I will get the hairy faries who love putting chewinging gum in peoples hair, they employ toothless troll who live under bridges to chew the gum since they can no longer eat goats who come tripping and tropping over their bridges. I mean how selfish are those goat, the poor troll wanting a lay in and these goats walking over his bridges TRIP TROP TRIP TROP backwards and forwards all day, just so they can have greener grass, whuch we all know that grass is never greener on the other side of the fence/bridge/wall, the sound its like seagulls on a tin roof.
        Everyone always look on the side of the victims, but I say the troll is the victim here, the noise, the smell, the goat urine dripping through the gaps of the bridge into his porridge.
        The troll have spoken to the council about it all but he was told phone the police, the police are not going to move him, find him another bridge, they offered him a place in the gnomeless centre, but he isn’t gnomeless, he has plenrty of friends who are gnomes.
        I say support the troll, save him from these evil goats, would you like to live with the constant tropping and tripping……..I know I wouldnt.

        You hair looks loverly btw

      2. I’m sure there’s the makings of an alternative fairy tale in there. You know, like Goldilocks should have been done with Breaking and Entering. Poor troll seeks alternative accommodation after being hounded from home by neighbours from hell. Kids love it!
        I can’t have sympathy with trolls though ever since I saw the Harry Potter film that showed a troll with a wand stuck up his nose. The extraction of said wand held vile images for me. Nightmares about mucus for weeks. So, I’ll keep my sympathy for my star sign. Did you know Jesus was a Capricorn too?! Well, if dates are to be believed! And, no, I don’t follow them. 🙂
        Thanks for the compliment on the ‘do’. I’ll live on these lovely things for weeks! x

      3. I have these mad moments you know, were my imagination just wanders into places not normally fequented by adult minds. The only problem is that I never keep my stories, I post them, forget to raje copies and they get lost to the world, I did write a story about Ruldolf and a curry pie and I lost it for a whike then found it on sone obscure website. There us another about a frog who got a small part in Harry Potter and it went to his head and he ended up in rehab with Michael Barrymore, but thats another story 🙂

      4. I used to write to a wee boy with autism once a week his mother kept it for a Monday morning when she had difficulty getting him up, this magic gold envelope turned up on the door step every Monday morning, an incentive to get up as he took the story to school and the teacher would read it to the class. The story was about himself, Christopher, who along with a magic wooden spoon (Chris used to put a spoon on the back on hand to focus before talking) In the story he had to go on a journey with the now talking, hoping wooden spoon across these different lands meeting different characters until he finished his quest, this way I could keep each week fresh and the story didnt need to end.
        But as adults do, his mother and I had a disagreement must be 5 years ago now and she told me not to contact her again – I have no idea what I did, but she was having pronlems at home…….any way these things happen, but again I never kept any oh well. 🙂

      5. I’m vexed for you that you never kept the stories but I bet you could write them again. As for the friendship, in season for a reason, perhaps. Troublesome to not know what was the offence, if any. But,maybe, there was a touch of jealousy from a spouse?
        Now I’m making up possible scenarios for the why.
        Haven’t you thought to make a collection of such stories. Coming up with unusual storylines, attractive to children, is not easy. If your imagination takes you that way, perhaps, well, that’s up to you. Just a thought.x

    2. Yep I have all manner of things in my head, scares myself with what comes out sometimes lol. When I was doing my placement in a primary school I had to do a science project with them. A tub of bicarbonate of Soda with and a bottle of white vinegar with red food colouring in and a bottle of water with the same red food colouring in.
      I got this class of 7 & 8 year old sitting around me by the class sink, I asked them what did they think I did at weekends.

      I got all manner of answers from postman to staying in my bed, then I told them that I was a Dragon Inspector and I go around the world looking for fire breathing dragons and if I found a sleeping dragon I would sneak up and take a blood sample, (showing them the bottles) I have to do it quietly and quickly so I didn’t wake the sleeping dragon.

      Dragons have such thick skins that they don’t feel it, then I mark on the map where the dragon lay sleeping. The problems with fire breathing dragons is after they have eaten something they get hiccups and of course every hiccup out shoots a flame and burns down a barn or bbqs a sheep. So I have to do a test and I have an antidote to stop them from breathing fire, after I have tested the blood and if I get a reaction I go back to my map, find the fire breathing one, hoping its still sleeping and inject the dragon with the antidote and everyone is happy, the towns folk, the dragons and the sheep. As dragons don’t need to fire as they are protected now and no one tries to kill them.
      The I take a zip bag, put a table spoon of soda wrapped in kitchen roll in and then put the coloured water in it, zip the bag up, shake it and nothing happens.
      I tell them that the blood from that dragon is negative doesn’t breath fire.
      Then I take another zip bag and bigger amount of soda wrapped in kitchen roll, then I add the dyed vinegar and zip the bag and shake, then they see the reaction and their little eyes light up as the the bag gets bigger and bigger they get excited and then BANG!!!!
      I then tell them that the blood from a fire breathing dragon is acid and it reacts with the powder. Then I let the kids do it, I had 16 kids in an amazement and I was in awe I loved every single minute and so did the children, except one who was terrified of the bang………….well you cannot win them all 🙂

      1. What a fantastic lesson. I’ll be doing science with one of my classes. What a temptation to pilfer. Well, there’s another idea for you.
        Science books for kids are not great at all when it comes to imagination. Too often pragmatic. I can see a teacher using this as the basis for a great lesson. You must have more of those. What about workcards. They’re making a comeback now because of Curriculum For Excellence. Teachers making up their own resources again. I used to love making workcards back in the day. Sticky back plastic and bubbles, not withstanding. I’d say you’re on to something here. If you don’t do it I might!
        Illustrated, animated, entertaining and learning. Go gadget, go!x Oh, and some of the newer programmes we use, better not mention names, may be interested in using such for online learning. The one with the spoon would go down a treat for that too. You’d be a tumshie not to. 🙂 x

      2. Thank you, you are more then welcome to use it for a class. 🙂 The problem I have is I am very low on self belief and I find it very difficult to do these things if I don’t have a point, like the school I was very enthusiastic but that because there is a point for doing it. I will try and get my mind in gear. I was just saying the other day because of my body is slowly making it more difficult for me to earn a living I need something and I will give it a go 🙂 Thank you x……….btw The Troll, this is from another post that started when I advised someone not to feed the Troll lol

        Well I think its your troll thats living under my bridge and eating my goats as they go tripping and trotting over my bridge to get the grass in the other field. I employed a troll master to get rid of the last one that moved in under my bridge. I cannot see why any self respected troll would want to live under my bridge its cold, drafty, when it rains the river raises. I did bult a large block of social housing flats all with bath, flushing toilers with bidets, large kitchen, 2 & 3 bedrooms they come with gardens all at a low rent. Each garden has a mock bridge with tripping & tropping sound effects and room for raising 2 goats.
        So they are standing empty and if you have trolls eating you out of house and home and time they moved out, so you can turn their bedroom into a hobby room just send them to Gnome towers, home from home for your growing troll

      3. You seriously should give it a go. The workcards would be a great place to start because they could be done in bite-sized chunks. Start with your acid and alkali, clip art or drawings, the story and then some questions on the whys and what ifs. Try one and see how you get on. I know schools are crying out for effective teaching methods, strategies and resources. You could have a flip side to help demented teachers learn how to carry out the experiments. Although I do science as part of the curriculum and I have a background of study in it, I am in noway an expert. For example, I did a course on teaching electricity and, even after the course, I was not much the wiser. A little, but not much.
        What about a set on primary school aspects of science? The water cycle, plants, insects, etc. The list is endless. Come up with the product, pitch it to Heinemann or Education City or Oxford Reading Tree but watch your ideas don’t get pinched! I’m telling you there’s a market for it.
        And, as for Mr. Troll, if he blows his nose anywhere near my bridge I’ll be moving house. Have you seen the size of those buggers not to mention boogers! Yeuch!x
        He’d still make a good story though. 🙂 🙂 x
