Where is this year disappearing to? Does anyone know? It can't just be me can it, thinking that its nearly Christmas again?
Les and I decided to take Rosie the dog, and pack up the caravan and head away on our first decent holiday in a few years. But things don't always work out as you hope, and due to a 'sad' happening in our family we had to come home again, before heading off for a few days to support a family member. On a brighter note, when we got home, we decided not to disappoint the kids over in the Hawkes Bay who were expecting a visit, so we packed up again! ( We're pretty good at packing and unpacking these days!) and headed over to Napier for a few days. Rosie had to stay home, and boy I tell you, she didn't look too happy at that idea!
Les and I had a fabulous time at schools over there, and I thoroughy enjoyed working with a senior class, talking about writing. They came up with some awesome ideas, and I was sad I had to leave before we got to finish. Then I got to share with Taradale Primary kids about my YouTube channel, and it's so good to know some of you are already listening/watching the poems. There will be more coming soon.
Here is the YouTube channel link below: Youtube.com/channel/UC174DZI0aLXx7WMzZNYTDTw?view_as=subscriber

If you have a favourite poem you'd like to hear me read for you, then let me know. Maybe your class has a favourite one of my poems, if you do, then why not video it and get your teacher to send it so me. I can then add it my YouTube channel. Great thiking Judi!
Now I'm home again for a while, and hopefully I might even get some time to finish writing some poems I've made a start on. My brain is full of ideas, I just need the time to do it. Kelly Tarlton's have seen our 'Plastic Minefeld' resource and LOVE it. So don't forget to share it with your teacher or class. We want to get kids all around the country singing this song, and every resource we sell, sends $4.00 straight to turtle rescue here in New Zealand. How cool is that to be a part of!
Remember I'm always happy to skype with a class, maybe it will be yours! :)

WORD OF THE MOMENT
lackadaisical - Can you be lackadaisical at times?
I can haha.
Don't forget that I love hearing from you, so contact me if you have any questions. I hope this year you may be one of the children I'll get to meet for the first time.
Keep on writing and keep smiling.
