I give out an egg to each pair and they write the instructions that are in picture form.
|Here are our instructions!|
|found this little cutie in an egg|
We found that one or two of the eggs had little characters inside, so it is a good idea to have more toys than you need for the size of the class, just in case!

I had a couple of late starts this week as my colleague was doing some of the input sessions. This gave me time to admire the beautiful Magnolia in a neighbour's garden. This is such a lovely time of the year, as everything starts to blossom afresh.

|Elizabeth Castle in the fog|
|Where is the other side?|
|High tide in the fog|
Fog!. It's like living at the edge of the known world. I couldn't see the other side of the bay and each day the horizon became more difficult to find.

I had to pop into St Helier briefly and found myself at West's Centre. Jersey is justifiably famous for its cows, and here we have a set of bronze sculptures of the beasts. Tourists love to sit their small children on them for a photo opportunity, and I didn't have time to wait until the street was empty, so you can see what I mean in my picture.

Our new park on the outskirts of town is being well used. The person who designed the water features should be given a pat on the back. Although this one is at the main road end, the noise of the water falling cancels out the traffic noise quite effectively. It will be a super place to sit and contemplate life in the Summer.
Saturday 17th March
Ask any Irishman the date and he'll tell you that it's St Patrick's Day. He is the Patron Saint of Ireland, and the country loves to celebrate. I play in a ceilidh band, but tonight we have been asked to do a Ceili, an Irish evening, for some of the Local Irish community. It is also a fund-raiser for the Brain injury charity Headway. It is being held in a local hotel and they have decorated the room in the Irish colours of Green, White and Orange.
The evening was a success and raised a lot of money for the charity. It was nice to be involved and also to play some of our other stock of music, which doesn't always get played, as we are predominantly an English folk music band.
