Teenager’s heartbreak

Can one ever recover from a heartbreak? There is no cure in my humble opinion. Better not mention it…hush!

Love is blind? Is it really? Do we know the reality but pretend otherwise?

Time heals it all…. not sure about that one either..Forget about it! hush!

What is best? Telling the world about your sorrow or keeping it for yourself?

I shall stop saying anything to the suffering dove.

Instead I will wait patiently,  parent’s agony.

Happy Easter!

The empty tomb

20 Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, ‘They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!’

So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, as well as the cloth that had been wrapped round Jesus’ head. The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen. Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. (They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.)10 Then the disciples went back to where they were staying.

Jesus appears to Mary Magdalene

11 Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb 12 and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.

13 They asked her, ‘Woman, why are you crying?’

‘They have taken my Lord away,’ she said, ‘and I don’t know where they have put him.’ 14 At this, she turned round and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realise that it was Jesus.

15 He asked her, ‘Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?’

Thinking he was the gardener, she said, ‘Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.’

16 Jesus said to her, ‘Mary.’ She turned towards him and cried out in Aramaic, ‘Rabboni!’ (which means ‘Teacher’).

17 Jesus said, ‘Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, “I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.”’

18 Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: ‘I have seen the Lord!’ And she told them that he had said these things to her.

Jesus appears to his disciples

19 On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you!’ 20 After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.

21 Again Jesus said, ‘Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.’ 22 And with that he breathed on them and said, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.’

Jesus appears to Thomas

24 Now Thomas (also known as Didymus[a]), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, ‘We have seen the Lord!’ But he said to them, ‘Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.’

26 A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you!’ 27 Then he said to Thomas, ‘Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.’ 28 Thomas said to him, ‘My Lord and my God!’ 29 Then Jesus told him, ‘Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.’

Zumba

Last night, Imo, our younger daughter asked me if I could drop her at the nearest village hall which is 5 minutes far from us.

When I asked her what was happening, she mentioned that her friends were going to a Zumba session. It was 5:40 pm and we were driving home and I know that my  hubby was aiming at getting diner ready for 6! I mentioned that i could have done with a bit of advance notification! So the excuse came…my friend only just told me the time now! ouch, so it was parking, saying hi darling, having a bite of the pork chop, waiting for Imo to get her clothes and going…

I hear that she enjoyed herself. Have you tried it?

Family concern: the future of our children.

Yesterday, one of my year 8 students used unwittingly her mobile during the lesson.

A split second later, one of the lads was calling out: – Miss, Clotilde is using her phone.

Clotilde went bright red and she blurbed out a weak excuse, ‘ my mum texted me’!

Later on as she handed me her mobile, she begged me not to log it in on the Big Brother’s system.

Why?

I won’t be allowed to go to the under-16 night out at C…., a local night club!

The whole incident reminded me of a similar situation when our youngest girl asked us to go out at one of those alcohol-free ‘events’.

The only difference is that she was not in Year 8 as Clotilde but in Year 10! Surely, it cannot be right that those night-clubs are allowed to market those events in schools at such a young age! Even at the time, I thought that it was just a marketing strategy to get the kiddies used to the idea of socialising in a night club.   They cannot wait until our children are at university but now they pick them up in the craddle!

PS Clotilde is not her real name!

Has Ofsted become a Trojan horse?

Teachers to demand resignation of chief schools inspector Sir Michael Wilshaw over ‘stream of negative and inaccurate comments’

The demand will be made at the National Union of Teachers’ annual conference next weekend when delegates will also debate a motion calling for a boycott of school inspections by education standards watchdog Ofsted. They are incensed over changes to school inspections – which have seen schools previously rated as “satisfactory” now being told they “require improvement” and “are not a good school”.As a result, the schools can be forced to become academies with the head being sacked and new sponsors appointed to run the school.In addition, schools can be given less than a day’s notice of the inspection team’s intention to visit them. “There will be heads who go into work on a Monday and are told there will be an inspection on the Wednesday and by the next Monday they will be out of the door,” said Christine Blower, general secretary of the NUT.

Is it a political agenda because the government or whoever is advising them, want the ‘academies’ to replace all schools? Is it the latest fad? Is it fair on our schools and our students?

Did you say horse?

As I am French, and the horse meat was on the news menu, one of my Year 8 students innocently asked me: have you ever had horse meat miss? and I answered naturally without fussing : I did, when I was very young! The truth..because I haven’t had any since…So when I received those photos (below) sent by my beloved hubby, for a minute I wondered…why on earth…then the penny dropped…What about you?

What is fashion?

I am proud to share with you a video that one of our daughters realised as part of her A2 media course.
