Things that go Bump (or Rrrrrrrrrrring) in the night

Well recently I have had some night time adventures.

Firstly a couple of weeks ago on Monday night/Tuesday morning I fell out of bed, at 1 am. Now this happened because my bed is one of those beds with a base made out of a mattress with legs with another mattress on top. Now the top mattress was hanging over the edge of the bottom one and rolled over to that side of the bed and tipped it. The mattress landed on it's side on the floor and I landed next to it. In fixing up my bed i bumped the light switch which is behind my bed and turned on the light thus waking me up fully, and so I noticed the time. I did get back to sleep pretty quickly though.

My latest adventure in the dark happened last Monday morning. The fire alarm went off at 6 am and so the whole college went out to the car park in the cold, foggy morning in their pyjamas. The high light of this or deal was that the children were excited to see the fire engine. The low light of the ordeal was that the trigger came from v block which is the single female block and so we all had to stay out after all the others could go back inside. I gues that something that we can praise God for is that there was not actually any fire.

To Be a Duck (Or a Pig)

Well today was our day for visiting AGFEST. It was a great day out. But as you may have guessed from the title it was raining, and the ground was covered in mud. The bottom of my jeans was covered in mud before we even got inside the event, just from walking through the car park, and when we left there was mud halfway up my thighs!!!! We had to leave earlier than we had planned because it was too wet and there wasn't that much shelter.
Despite all this we really enjoyed ourselves while we were there. We saw a lot of things while we were there, we saw, cows, alpacas, goats, sheep dog exhibition, puppies, tractors four wheel drives doing a course to see what they could do and a couple of helicopters.
We were all exhausted when we got back.
