1st to 7th December 2012
I think that somewhere over each of our rainbows, the skies are always blue, the sun is continually shinning and that all our deepest dreams we dare to dream really do come true.
With exams over at school we had normal classes for part of the week and then we began our special Medieval activities. I did Medieval Fashion, we learnt about the type of fashion that the upper and lower classes wore, what men and women wore, what the clothing was made from and what accessories they put with their clothing. Did you know that Medieval clothes provided information about the status of
the person wearing them. The clothing and
fashion during the Medieval era of the Middle Ages was dominated and highly
influenced by the Kings and Queens of the era. Only the wealthy could dress in
After we did our research we were given the opportunity to design our own fashion. I thoroughly enjoyed doing this as I really love beautiful dresses. Then using what materials are available at school and only hand sewing we will be making our designs next week. At a special assembly next week all the groups will then be doing presentations, there are groups doing art, some doing a play, some working on games, buildings and weapons.
On the weekend I met with my friend Ally, we had a photograph together with Santa. We had wanted to do it last year but he had been on his lunch break. It was fantastic doing that with Ally, she has been a really terrific friend to me.
Then on Sunday I was humbled by having the Andante Andante Abba Choir perform for me and my family. They sang a repertoire of Abba songs which had us tapping our feet. Then they sang my very favourite Christmas Carol, Silent Night. Their music filled my heart with joy, the gift of music is so splendiferous. This is a link if you would like more information about the choir. http://www.andanteandantechoir.com/
I also had my physiotherapy appointment with Kaitlyn, this time she worked on my foot and right knee which have been very painful. I wanted them to feel more comfortable as I am hoping to throw discus and shot put at Interclub on Saturday.
It is Middle School Celebration tonight and I have been asked to present the Pathfinder Award that I won last year to the student who has won it this year. I remember how honoured I felt by winning that award last year and I have tried to continue to live up to that award by continuing to blaze a trail not only in my education but also trying to help and inspire others.
We have our Senior School Celebration on Monday night, it should be a very special night celebrating the achievements of the year.
You may be wondering why I am typing my Blog in larger font, it is because it is much easier for me to see, when the font is smaller I have to strain to look at it and I then tend to also put my neck forward and strain it and anything I can do to avoid straining and having pain is helpful.
My pain continues to be my enemy, some days are a little better than others but sometimes I have to fight constantly, I fight it with trying to be brave and positive, my pain killers, heat and massages.
Remember to look for your rainbow, believe in yourself and never let go of your dreams.
