It’s been quite a while since my last post so I’d thought I’d give all of my readers a little update on whats going on in my life.
I’m also asking all of you lovely people for some help!!
Let’s start with that…
My big sister Emma is a teacher at a Primary School in Cornwall and she has asked me to reach out to all of my readers, to see if any printers would be able to help her out!
Her aim is for each of her students to produce a book and sell it to the parents and public in a local bookshop, with a variety of the children’s work in. The idea is to give the children an outcome to doing their work and make it more of a project for them, they are producing a sellable item.
My sister, Emma is an amazing teacher and always goes above and beyond to make learning so much more fun! I would have loved to be in her class when I was at school. She has a theme for each for each term, for example, this term is a Mythical Magic. So each subject they do is based around this. English, they will write creative stories about witches and warlocks, Math, they will use potion measurements etc, it all sounds so much fun!!
Take a look at her classroom…
The Suit of Armour my Dad and Sister made for her Mythical Magic Theme… I have a very clever Dad!!!
She calls it ‘immersive learning’. Emma decided it was more fun for the children if their classroom was a theme, meaning there are hardly any normal desks, she lets the children sit wherever they want whilst doing their work, in the den, at the Knights Round Table, even against the Stone from the Sword in the Stone.
So I’m asking for anyone who does printing, to help out my sister at the best price possible, to produce 80-100 copies of a 120-page book, for the aged 7-9-year-olds to sell!!
If you could help, please email Emma at email@example.com referencing my blog, A Tiny Girl’s Big World. A massive Thank You from the both of us in advance!!!
Now.. on to what I’ve been up to this past week or so!
I’ve been incredibly stressed out recently, with uni changing my timetable every day, having a lot of trouble trying to find a job around my uni hours (which I’m not even sure of yet), having absolutely no money, my boyfriends birthday and a whole lot of car trouble.
I’ve been on the phone most days to either my university, student finance, or possible employees, just trying to get my life back on track, and get myself back into a routine, rather than being bored out of my mind at home all day every day. It has honestly been so hard for me. Most people would be so happy to have all this free time on their hands, but me, I HATE IT!!!! It’s stressed me out so much not knowing when I’ll have time to work once I go back to uni. They told me I’d only be in two days a week, so it was looking alright and I had almost sorted a job in an office three days a week, perfect! Until my uni changed my timetable again and added another two days *eye roll*.
So now it’s back to the drawing board of the unemployed and poor. FIND ME A JOB!!!!!!!
It’s not been easy having no money, especially when it was my boyfriends birthday, but thanks to Momma P’s quick thinking and the wonderful world of Very’s buy now, pay later scheme, I was still able to get him a present and even made him a birthday cake…
Massive shout out to my other sister Becky for doing the majority of the icing!! The cake was a big hit at the family meal.
Now my car trouble…
I’m incredibly lucky to have a dad who knows anything and everything about cars!!! I’ve had about 10 new wheels/tyres since getting my car in 2015 (those curbs are always in the way 😉 ) and I’m so lucky that I don’t have to pay stupid prices to get it fixed, but it honestly feels like once one thing on my car gets fixed, something else decides it doesn’t want to work anymore.
I drove to Essex last weekend to see my boyfriend, and take a little driving strain off him. Although my dad was incredibly dubious that my car would get me there in one piece, it managed.. just. But he changed the wheel when I came back, and later that day, my exhaust started making an incredibly strange sound, making me look like one of those tools who get an add on to their exhaust on their 2002 plate Corsa to make it sound like a sports car… I was so embarrassed driving it! But my Dad’s fixed that problem temporarily today until he has time to get a new exhaust or something… it all goes over my head. God knows what I would do without my Dad!!
My mission over the next couple of days is to try and figure out how and where I’m going to get a job, maybe give my car a little break from me, and try to take advantage of the time I have off, before going back to University next week.
I feel so much better now I’ve written everything out on here, it’s a good way to get everything off my chest, although I doubt anyone is that interested in my life, I’m so happy to have my little corner of the internet, where I can talk about anything and empty my mind from all of the stress. So Thank You for reading!!!
I love you all x
