My son decided this morning that he would really like it if it snowed from now until february. I asked why as he really dislikes the cold as he gets severe cramps , a side effect of his cerebral palsy and pains in his hips and ankles from all the metal work pins plates and screws he has had used on his joints to try and relieve the pain he was suffering from misalined joints. He informed me that he would love to be home schooled again so he didn't have to put up with the idiots that still messed about in class, and he actually felt he learnt more. He said it would be fine if he didn't have to go out in the snow as he thinks its pretty to look at when it's all clean and white. I think it probably stemmed from his old maths teachers asking if he would be willing to resit his maths papers, I asked if it would be the higher level paper that we had originally asked if he could sit. He told me that it would be the same paper, to which he had told the teacher there was no point as he had the highest mark he could get. Apparently they had told him they wanted him to do it as he had got such a high mark, no further explanation. Me thinks they think he cheated, as they didn't teach him for best part of 2 terms and suggested he would get a much lower mark, and are trying to justify this. I can catergorically say he didn't cheat as he not only had a scribe but another teacher from school sat watching to ensure only things Andrew said were written down. Shame on them.
Edit-my son told them basically that he was happy with his results and no thankyou he would not do the exam again so tough-good of him I say , and no more has been said!
Moan over and onto my card. I used an image that was sent to me in a rak, love this image and it is on my wish list and has been for some time, I just never seem to get around to buying it, probably as I get most oppourtunity when I get birthsday money in august and there aren't too many christmas stamps around then , nor does my brain think christmas.
I added some liquid applique to the snow areas and sprikled with glitter before puffing , it doesn't show too well on the photo, probably as its so dark tipping it down with rain and when I put the lights on it looks just as bad. The image is coloured in promarkers and sakura pens and the paper was a magazine freebie. Now what have I missed telling you, the base card is gold pearlised and the silver is pattered mirri board from jtf. The confetti snowflakes are a mix from not sure where. The sentiment is a stamp from the stampman embossed in silver powder, yep think thats everything, please shout out if I missed anything.
