I can't believe just how long it's been since my last post. I've been so busy what with one thing and another.
First there was the school exams. I'm a supervisor at a local high school for the V.C.E. exams.
This is the Victorian Certificate of Education exams that are for year 12 high school ( last year of high school). They are held twice yearly and always using supervisors from 'outside' the school concerned.
End of year exams are held over 3 weeks , I did 16 of them. I really love the work but it is very tiring as you must stay on your feet all the time and most importantly, keep quiet!!
Some of the exams go for 3 hours so it's a long time without talking.
I have managed to make some new Christmas decorations though, there's always time for craft.
The little trees are very simple, two are made with paper and the other using suffolk puffs glued onto a foam shape. I've made quite a few trees over the years, fabric, felt and covered bottle tops to think of a few.I love this little angel, my lovely husband cut it out for me and I painted her and the standing angel with the beautiful wings. I don't do enough folk art. Every now and then the mood takes me and out come the paints and brushes!
A couple of months ago we made book-marks and angels. I'm fairly new at beading but really enjoy it. Hopefully we will make something else next year with beads.
I have also been quite involved at church singing in the choir and taking part in a Christmas play as well as a couple of lunches where I usually have too much to eat, promise myself that I won't eat as much at the next one, but, oh dear, everything looks so tempting !!
The next and last social outing for me this year is next Wednesday. It's our Probus Christmas lunch that I have planned. We are also putting on our own entertainment.
I hope the weather will be good as we are going out to the Tangled Maze near Creswick and hope to walk in the gardens and through the maze.
