World Book Day in the UK

World Book Day is celebrated here in the United Kingdom today. On this day schools usually organize very cute activities but this year for obvious reasons this will not be possible.

These are the favorite stories of Louis at the moment, he falls asleep and wakes up talking about them. These are the stories of the park keeper, Percy the Park keeper, and the animals of the park, by Nick Butterworth.

This year Louis wanted to dress up Percy, made two very cute paintings on the stories “the best tree house ever” he said and also we started the day reading all the stories, and even had the assistance of all the animal friends 🙂 That was a nice way to start the day, don’t you think? 😉

How do you usually celebrate your book day? 🙂

You see?…

I hate being right about these things. Regarding the home school here in the area, this week we received this message from louis's school principal asking parents to watch out for school "borrowed" laptops so children can access online classes… because if laptops appear damaged, refund contributions are expected. I think it's good that they do it so people can learn to be responsible. Have you seen this? They were provided with laptops because they had needs and are now subject to having to spend single and exclusive money because of them… You can't believe people are getting more and more… Unconscious.

With so many people in need and these people going to ruin something that's not theirs? I'm the only one who thinks this is a tremendous lack of respect and common sense. What example are these parents giving their children? And you have to be the teacher telling you where the kids should put their laptop to attend online classes? Oh, boy… I'm speechless. On top of that knowing that there are families like those of Louis' best friend who needed a laptop and were not in time to get it… And now the boy had to go back to school because her home computer broke down… 🙁 You think that's fair? 🙁

Walk…

… Since I was a little girl, I love to walk. Alias if there's one thing I don't need to be told to do is walk. At the moment I wish I could walk more, but unfortunately these pains have conditioned me a lot. Not to mention that I will have to do shield (guard / retreat) until March 31 for medical indications, since I have weakened immune system due to anemia … because even having already taken the first dose of the vaccine, they prefer to play it safe. Anyway… that's all I was going to miss.

Walking does so well, helps and relieves, and in the end, although tired, we end up feeling much better. For me it is the best possible means of transport 🙂

And it seems that I already have a little hiking companion, he loves to walk since he started walking 🙂 going up and down stairs was his favorite sport as he counted the steps 😀

And this is the best music for walking, rain or 🙂

And you guys, you like to walk, too? 🙂

Small Axe| Red, White and Blue

Red, White and Blue is a 2020 historical drama directed by Steve McQueen and co-written by McQueen and Courttia Newland. It stars John Boyega as Leroy Logan, an officer in the London Metropolitan Police who founded the Black Police Association and tried to reform the police force from the inside.

John Boyega shows once again that he is an excellent actor in this film about the BLM movement.

Humanity needs more films like this that show us what the black community has gone through throughout history in the fight against white supremacy. Humanity needs to learn more about the black community in the history books in schools. Humanity needs to understand that this world is everyone's and everyone's. No one is more than anyone. We're all in this together, enough of rowing against mare. Together we can end racism once and for all!

You can watch this movie on Amazon Prime and BBC Iplayer.

Louis, where are my glasses?

It was a morning like all the others. We woke up, Louis went to the pot, as always in my company :D, we had breakfast, we got dressed and that's when I noticed the lack of my glasses… I asked Louis, because I know he loves to touch my glasses, to which he replied: -It was the whale, mami!

The whale? What do you mean, you don't know? Come on, Louis, please, we're already late.

– yes, the whale took your glasses to the baby shark because he wanted to read a book and wasn't taking a good look at the letters 😀

He took my hand and took me to his room where he showed me the baby shark in his bed with my glasses put on 😀

Then put on his glasses and said in English: – Today I'm the teacher, let's go to school 🙂
