I've had a busy day today, shopping, cleaning, baking and starting to sort out one of my over stuffed cupboards, that, I haven't had time to work on today's challenge. So, I've kind of cheated.
The challenge was called, 'A Patch In Time' and I had to think of a badge or patch which showed a period of my life. Early this morning, I had ideas buzzing around my head but as the day progressed, no time to create a fun new piece.
However, fortunately for me in my endeavours to bring some order to basket upon basket of papers, I found a certificate awarded to me by Year 6 children from my school.
I was a teacher for nearly 40 years and 34 of them were spent at the same school. I loved being a teacher and loved working with children so being awarded a certificate, which was presented to me during a whole school assembly was very much appreciated.
The words on the the award touched me deeply as I had always tried to bring a little bit of fun into the classroom.
My class motto had always been, 'Laugh a little-Learn a lot!'
