I have got out of the habit of blogging or taking pictures, you can mainly blame the dog for that, cos the time I was sitting and faffing on the computer is now taken up with walking or training the pooch! I also haven’t been tweeting or blipping, (sounds like some sort of disease) and I do miss it, so I’m going to try and get back on track with it all, even if it is a short post, I feel it is still important to have a record of things to look back on, cos I do enjoy looking back over photos and events that have happened. Maybe at the moment my life is not that advent full, which is not a bad thing, so maybe I haven’t got that much to share.
I am doing something exciting at the moment at school, I applied for an awards for all grant and got money to set up a community radio based at my school. It has taken a year to sort out but we are finally getting closer to our first broadcast on the big wide web. So soon I will be able to share a link with you all to have a listen to my Devonian tones! Now that’s scary! It is a get opportunity for the children and I hope in time will add to and benefit their learning. It is quite rare for primary children to experience this down this end of the world, normally secondary schools, and the possibilities for its use are endless. Also I am in the process of turning our school hall into a theatre space, adding curtains, lights, microphones, and being able to broadcast on the radio from the hall too. So that will benefit us especially with only six working weeks to our Christmas performance (sorry to mention the c word but we have started that in our school already).
So that’s work, well plus the normal day to day life of being a teacher, which a lot of you out there I know know what I mean by that. At theatre school I run on a Saturday we are thinking of doing the production Charlie and the chocolate factory which I love. I have also started up a twinkle toes dancing group for littles which seems to be going alright, lots of skipping, jumping, wafting and pretending.
My knees are really playing up, not surprised with all the dancing, PE and walking the pony, not getting any younger, I’m afraid to go the doctors because I know they will say I will have to have another operation and I really haven’t got time for that. So I think I will shut up and put up with that for a minute.
Ok that’s a general update now back to the photo challenge!
All the below pictures are the horizons that I see around me.
The first photo is of Dartmoor where I often go for long walks.
The second is the view of the horizon from my caravan in Looe, Cornwall.
The third of the horizon from my boat.
And the last, this is the horizon I see very day out of my front door!
When I’m on my walks every day I see the sun set and in the morning i watch it rise, that always blows my mind that when the sun sets we shall never see that day again, it’s gone, it’s history already, but the sun will always rise again on a new day, a new beginning and a new hope!
I am a very lucky girl to live in such a beautiful place, aren’t I x

I’ve only just found this – WP didn’t tell me you’d posted 😦 Congrats on the funding – how’s the radio project going? i love Charlei & the Chocolate factory, too – I saw in danced by a local danse schoollat year, and it was fantastic!
I love these pics- I’m from Cornwall, and Looe was my childhood haunt – we went by train with my sisters and picnicked on the beach in summer. Now I take my kids there to run wild when we visit my parents. Sigh. Kit hill, Calstock and Dartmoor are other favourite haunts. Do you listen to the Kit Hillbillies?
Eek! Erratum, that should read “local dance school last year”. Oops. Sorry for the generous sprinkling of typos…
You lucky, lucky thing! As you already know… I love Dartmoor, Devon and Cornwall… what I wouldn’t give for your views on a daily basis! Wonderful photos 🙂
