Who would have thought that this little girl, with all the phys issues she has, would get the coveted enamelled sports badge of the week?
She came out of school with a skip in her step tonight and has promised to polish it every day. She gets to keep it for a week before it goes to the next deserved pupil.
She was awarded this for overcoming her nerves on the trampet.
The trampet is small and has no safety barriers like her trampoline at home so naturally she was very frightened (her words not mine). With encouragement from her mentor she overcame the fear and she flew!
Im getting over my cold although my voice has gone a little bit husky which is something I hope to be rid of next week. I don't mind having a voice like Deirdre Barlow but coupled with the fact I have a northern accent, it ain't going to be a quality television voice. I had a phone call yesterday from my auntie who called me to ask what time I am on QVC next week. She had heard Dawn reel off the craft day demonstrators and was surprised to hear my name. Now, Im as nervous as billy-o because my momma is going to be watching and I have to mind my manners and all that so Im quite afraid to tell everyone when I am on as I know there will be beady eyes watching my every fluff! But then, really, I'm not on there for myself as I am part of a double act with Clare Curd in conjunction with Papermania. Its a job, not a career but its going to be a great experience and a tick in the box that I will have had my 15 minutes of fame. The stuff I have to make is mighty millions but the products are fabulous, I'm so excited to be able to show the products off in my own little way that will hopefully delight the crafting maseeeef of QVC.
So for those that keep asking on here, on the phone, by email and on facebook - its next Tuesday at 4pm. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!
