Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 361 – Strong


“You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice.”

Bob Marley

I think I really need to appreciate my strength this week, Spidey. so, thank you for this quote, today.

This above quote resonates so much.

I have always been of the belief that whatever higher power there is, up there, putting us through our paces, never sends us more than he knows we can handle. Though, those times can seem like we are breaking, or broken, even. If we are able to centre ourselves and look internally, we can find the strength to deal with whatever has been thrown at us.

That is where strength comes in. It’s not about lifting weights, or that physical strength, rather the emotional strength that gets us through life.

I haven’t been feeling 100% at all the last few weeks but, as you know, we teachers soldier on. There have been more and more cases of Covid in the school, and this week at least two members of my team succumbed, too.

I have been testing daily,sometimes twice, to keep track of my own status, but the headaches from the stress, the restless nights, coupled with the work we still need to, so our children are educated properly, eamt that I had to draw from an inner strength that I wasn’t sure I had.

But, it is obviously there, as here I still am, standing strong, ish.

We made it to the end of the week, and I was able to manage staffing shortages, as well as the rest of what my job entails, and life stuff, too.

And, most important of all, I’m still smiling.

So, are you able to find your inner strength?

This post, by no means is meant to belittle those who struggle to cope. I know the world is made of different people with different ways. And we are not always able to find a path that leads to a positive conclusion. My thoughts are always with those that struggle, too.


Wishing you a wonderfully peaceful Sunday, Peeps!

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 179


“Just because you’re happy doesn’t mean the day is perfect, it means you’ve looked beyond it’s imperfections.”

Bob Marley

Thanks, Spidey.

Isn’t this a great thought to ponder upon?

I hope you have a perfect day too. 🙂

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps ❤

So, the rules…

1. Thank the person who nominated you…Thank you!
2. Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
3. Nominate three bloggers each day.

So, thank you Plot, for thinking of me!

I decided to theme these challenges aa while back, so in the spirit of the wet English Spring that has now hit us, the theme will be ….


So, Day one…

“Some people feel the rain. Others get wet.” Bob Marley

Love this quote!

Do you feel the rain? I love to watch it. I love to feel it when it is warm, in the tropical countries. I love to think about how it is nourishing everything around, even though it may have just soaked me due to an unexpected downpour!

However, when it means we can’t let the caged animals kids out at school at break or lunchtime, like yesterday, it creates an atmosphere akin to a lunatic asylum in a school as kids NEED  fresh air and run around time!

It was a bit of a mad day, but that would be whole other post!

So, there’s my post for the day.

And I nominate… Katie, Hayley, and Willow!

Thank you and good night day!

I’ll be back tomorrow with day 2’s rainy offering!!!!



Song Challenge (Music That Means Something) Day 5 – Three Little Birds – Bob Marley

A thank you goes out to fellow blogger and friend, Lisa, for nominating me for this fun challenge. The rules are:
Post a song a day for five consecutive days.
Post what the lyrics mean to you.  (Optional)
Post the name of the song and video.
Nominate 1 or 2 bloggers each day of the challenge.

Today I shall leave you with the song from another true legend!

Bob Marley, and Three Little Birds.

This is a song full of hope and positivity. I know he was round long before, but I didn’t really get into his music until I went to university. And it was wonderful that Lil Princess, in her reception class at age 4, used to sing this together with her friends, as her teacher used to play it as a tidy up and calm down sing!

Don’t worry about a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright
Singing’ don’t worry about a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright

And on this last day I would like to invite anyone who would like to join in, to post a song a day for 5 days, following the instructions above!


Guess who? – Kids Logic Part 9


Go on, guess!

We were at that painful stage, last week, of paying for our new bed.
Lil Man rushes up to me.

LM: Mum! I NEED your phone!
Me: Why do you NEED my phone?
LM: To take a picture! Quick!

He came back with the above photo.

Me: What is it?
LM: Not what mum, WHO!
Me: OK, Who is that?
LM:(looking at me like I’m dumb, because I didn’t get it!) Bob Marley!

My interactive peeps!
