I haven't had much time to blog lately as work has been so busy however I have written a couple of nice poems when alone. Next week is mid-term so I have Monday off for the bank holiday and Wednesday.
One of the sweetest things happened to me in work yesterday when an almost 4 year old boy who doesn't have much English (his parents are Lithuanian) came up to me and taking my hand to his chest said, "Teacher, tick, tock", before smiling and marching off. I had been getting the children to listen to my watch going "tick tock" some days earlier. It is very difficult to get them to sit still or to have some silence.
I missed the Boyne Reading where Emer Davis was the featured guest on Thursday night. Next Wednesday I hope to travel to Drogheda with other Boyne Writers to participate in the Viaduct Bards Readings.
