Five for Friday! 19/04/13

Guys, guess what?  It's FRIDAY!  You know what that means...

Link up with Kasey at Doodle Bugs to share five random things from your week... and then spend hours reading everyone else's posts like I do! :)

1.  This was my desk on the last day of term...

...and this is what it looked like at the end of the first day back to school this week.  Sigh.  As hard as I try I cannot keep my desk tidy!!  I think it's because I get frustrated with piles of 'stuff' in the classroom, so I move it all into my office to get it out of the way.  Perhaps I need a more streamlined filing/storage system. Or perhaps I should just close the office door and forget about it! :)

2. Since I'm in the mood for revealing my shameful cleaning habits... here's what my lounge room floor looks like after a few nights of prepping games for the kidlets.  My weekend plans involve lots of tidying up!

3.  Google Reader is closing it's doors in just a little while, so I am changing over to bloglovin'.  You can follow me there if you like. :)

4.  Nothing like a healthy lunch!  Yesterday this Fairy Floss Force Field Zooper Dooper (that's a Cotton Candy popsicle for those of you playing from the US!) was all I got to eat.  Luckily it was yummy! :)

5.  Someone posted the other day about a gorgeous retell set of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'  that they bought from Teachers Pay Teachers... and now I can't find the blog post or the item on TpT.  Can anyone help??

Happy weekend friends!



  1. Hi! I am your newest follower. Is this the first week of school in Australia? A cotton candy popsicle does sound yummy! Good luck with your tidying up!

    1. Hi Angela,
      So sorry for the incredibly slow reply to your comment - last week it wouldn't work for me and I have no idea why!
      We have just had our first 2 weeks of the second term, our school year starts in January.
      Thanks so much for following!
      Lauren :)

  2. If it makes you feel any better, Lauren, I close my office door and conveniently forget that it looks like a bomb has hit it... repeatedly.

  3. Hi Lauren,

    Great 5 for Friday,
    Ditto on the desk situation.... I had everything lined up on my lounge room floor last Sunday night, and it spent most of the week on my desk at school, before finding a home with my preps :)

    Have a great term,


    1. Hi Elyse,
      Sorry for the super slow reply to your comment - my blog has been playing tricks on me since I fiddled with the template!
      I added your blog to my Bloglovin' profile and am excited to follow you.
      Thanks for stopping by! :)

  4. Hi Lauren,

    Brooke from Teachable Moments posted about The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Is this the post you're looking for? -->

    1. Hi Emily,
      That was exactly the post I was looking for! Thanks so much!!
      Lauren :)

  5. Haha! I totally agree, it doesn't take me long to write mine, but then I spend an hour or more looking at others! Your desk is huge!!!! Very jealous of you having an office and such a huge desk! Even if it does have lots of piles on it - you still have room to work!
