Meanwhile, I finished reading 'The Intruders' by E. E. Richardson. I'm looking forward to going over it with Charlotte as I feel sure she will enjoy it. I liked it so much that I went on to read two more of E. E. Richardson's books, 'The Devil's Footsteps' and 'Soul Trade'. Brilliantly scary stories - real page turners!
While Charlotte's been on 'summer holidays', I've spent some time thinking about picking up my degree again with The Open Univesity, so I've registered on a third level Children's Literature course that starts at the beginning of October. I know I'll be taking on a lot, what with organising Charlotte's lessons as well as my own study, but I find I work better under pressure and seem to get more done that way. The set books are an interesting mix - from 'Junk' by Melvin Burgess which is about squatting, drinking and drug taking amongst teenagers to Beatrix Potter's 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit'!
I've got lots of lesson plans and projects lined up for the beginning of September, for Charlotte and I to work on. One highlight for the new term is that we don't need to splash out on a new school uniform!
Looking forward to reading this AGAIN! :)
