Been a bit quiet doing lots of colouring!

Just realised I've not posted anything since Wednesday. Most evenings I've come home and got the promarkers out. I almost ranted when Meg's school was shut again, but I coloured instead. Thursday was interesting. We took my class swimming for the first time. Sixteen came to school that day, and all went smoothly until we got back on the bus to come back to school. The road outside the leisure centre was sheet ice and the bus slid sideways across the junction, coming to rest against a road sign! The children were very calm and quiet. There was one comment of 'Are we going to crash again, miss?' which was answered with 'Let's be nice and quiet whilst the driver concentrates'. By the time other motorists had got out of the way and left us with room to manoeuvre we were half an hour late getting back to school. Every child thanked the driver on the way off and several told him he was wonderful, bless 'em! He was filling up!  There have been no injuries on the playground and our school has been open every day. I'm sounding a bit self righteous now aren't I?!! Sorry!
Anyway, onto the cards. All three are digistamps. The tiger is from Crafts U Print, the monkey is from Dustin Pike and the Beautiful Hydrangea is from the lovely Teri at delicious doodles. They are all coloured with promarkers. Thanks for looking!

Ooh, that blue is absolutely gorgeous - I'm always on the lookout for good blues because they're few and far between - either too grey or too deep - what colour is it, please? You've coloured that really beautifully :)

Good job you had a good driver, eh? And yes, you did sound a tad self righteous, RFLMBO.

Gorgeous cards, Sally. I especially love the tiger.
Your bus ride sounds hair raising, well done to the fabulouis driver by the sounds of it.
Our school has been open all week too even though it is the highest building in the town and the teachers and children have all had to walk up some very steep hills.
Hope you are keeping warm.
