Death by emulsion!!! ;-)

 I have a newly decorated 'classroom' at

'Sally Hall Tuition' !! 

It's all thanks to Mr Snippets...who hates decorating! LOL ;-)

I chose a very pale lemon for the walls and this sets off my

beautiful Eileen Soper prints, perfectly.

I chose some lovely cream and gold frames ( distressed

and absolutely perfect!!)

This room had never been decorated since the day we moved in, in 2001.

'I won't be doing it again in my lifetime,' were the words

that he uttered, a few days ago, whilst brandishing a paintbrush,

as if he wanted to attack someone!

(Death by emulsion!!) ;-) ;-)

But it's all come together, really well;  Mr Snippets, beavered away

and he worked like a trojan every day, for a number of days.

I love it!

I feel very inspired being in my lovely room; I only hope that the children do too!

I have all sorts of interesting things in my room.

As a classroom teacher, I loved doing art and craft with my classes; 

I loved displaying children's work to its best;

I loved creating an inspiring environment, in which to work

 I miss all of that.

Mustn't forget the tea tray!! A vital piece of equipment

for every teacher!!

I have little 'snippets' of my own children in my room too.

Helen and Nich are both examples of what hard work can achieve

and I am mighty proud of them and how they have grown into

such wonderful adults. 

They each inspire me in their own way.

For anyone who doesn't know, I am a private tutor based in South Devon

 and I teach English to children of

primary school and secondary school age.

You can find me here .

So that's it... Blu Tack is now banned!

Oh... and I would offer to hire out Mr Snippets

as he's done a fantastic job but...well

I want to live long enough to teach many more lessons

in my fab room!
