One-Liner Wednesday – #1LinerWeds – Life Differentiation

“Life is a set of challenges, set by One who knows exactly what you can cope with – He’s like the ultimate Teacher, differentiating with us all… Man, I thought planning for a class of thirty was bad – He has to think of billions!” – Ritu

Of Teen and Tweenage Angst #Poem

It’s a trying time in my household at the moment, filled with hormones and demands, mood swings and laughter. I can’t go into the details, but I can definitely pen a verse to get my own angst out!

Gone are the days when a parent
Simply battled with the Teens
These days we have a new breed
Calling themselves the Tweens!

Now with the Teens, it’s expected
Hormones raging through
But the trouble with these Tweens
Dear God, I wish I knew

It’s like ten is the new thirteen
And thirteen’s just as bad
Parenting’s never easy
But I don’t like this Tweenage fad!

I was prepared for seven years
Of total Teenage hell
But with these Tweens, they’ve added on
Another three years as well!

They stomp around in stereo
And fight at the drop of a hat
You cannot have a conversation
It’s just all rude backchat!

And if, perchance, things happen
To not go quite their way
You’ll get the silent treatment
Though they have so much to say

It flows in images and messages
On Social Media sites
Selfies, emojis LOL’s
To put the world to rights

Right now I live in a timebomb
Of tween and teenage tricks
What on earth will happen when I
Add menopause to the mix?

One-Liner Wednesday – #1LinerWeds Pantstastic!

“My colleagues think I’m Pants-(tastic)!” – Ritu

This will be the slogan on badges I think I am going to make for a new initiative I’ve started at school!

Yup, it’s that “Art of Brilliance” course that inspired it again! Check my post out about it here, if you haven’t seen it before!

He talked about special pants and the fact that every day is special, so we shouldn’t save our special pants for a particular day, but make each day count.

I got to thinking, after having seen a staff appreciation wall in another school, and came up with an underpant related idea for our establishment, and ran it past my Head, who loved it!

Anyone can take a pair of appreci-pants and write a comment celebrating another member of staff, or thanking them. It makes you feel pants (tastic) when you are appreciated!

So, here’s the poem I penned…


And these are all the bits and bobs I put together to create the display. It has been introduced to the staff who will hopefully take it on board. Whoever has seen it has said the love the idea!

I’m hoping plenty of pants will be up there over the next few days!

The badges were an idea of another colleague – I am so tempted!
