Fame at last

My husband and I just spent three days in the Peak District as a pre-anniversary treat and a last few days away before I had to go back to school today.  On the way we stopped off at a place that caught our eye on the map 
Seems like my husband's family originate from the Nottingham area!
We had a lovely break, lots of fresh air and sunshine and beautiful scenery.  I've missed catching up on everyone's blogs but am looking forward to seeing what you've all been up to while I've been away.  
First day back to school for me today, and after 6 weeks holiday, I can tell you that it comes very hard to be back in the office.  Plus we had a fire drill this afternoon, thank goodness it was dry, warm and sunny!  I'd like to share a poem that a friend of mine posted on Facebook:

Twas the night before school when all through the town, 
teachers were groaning, it was a disturbing sound. 
By 10 they were washed and tucked up in bed, 
where memories of children filled them with dread. 
New pencils, new folders, new registers too.
 New classes, new grey hairs, their anxieties grew. 
The parents just giggled when they learned of this fright,
 you've had 6 weeks off, they're all yours. Goodnight

I lived in Keyworth for 10 years. Gorgeous little village just outside of Nottingham, Plumtree is oneof the other local villages. My parents actually went to Feignes with a choir and they came over to Keyworth at some stage too. Of all the places for you to visit!
