It's Friday and it's the 1st of May, can you believe it? Did you know the 1st of May is International Workers' Day, so perhaps if you have time today you might say a little prayer of thanks for all the Frontline workers who continue to go out to work every day to make sure the country keeps running as safely and as best it can. Frontline workers include all those people who work in hospitals & doctor's surgeries, in the government, in shops, banks and other services, people transporting the goods to shops and hospitals, the Gardaí, our Postmen and Postwomen, Delivery workers, people who ensure our services such as gas, electricity, water and oil keep working, and other workers who provide essential services. I'm sure many of you have parents or family members who are Frontline workers and we are very grateful to them for all the work they do.
The sun is shining here today, I hope it's shining where you are too. Indie has found a spot of sun just inside my front door so she is basking in that sunspot right now enjoying the warmth of it and giving me annoyed looks for disturbing her to take a photo. I can hear Pip running around like a lunatic probably driving Lola and Ruben mad because they're just snoozing away as they do ALL day! Pip is like their annoying little sister, making lots of noise and trying to wake them up so they might play with her. They never do but she never stops trying. It's gets a bit crazy here with three cats and one dog!
Well done to those of you who have sent me in your Italy projects already. I'm really enjoying reading them and I'm learning new things about Italy all the time. Don't worry if you haven't sent it in, you can still share it with me, send me a photo or bring it in when we do go back to school. And if you haven't done the project at all, don't worry either, I'm sure you've been busy doing lots of other things which I can't wait to hear about. I know some of you have been doing the work I send on Aladdin, some of you have been working in your gardens, or helping with painting, others of you have been baking and cooking or helping to mind your little brothers and sisters, and more of you have been trying out some science experiments. You're all doing lots of different things and I love hearing all about that.
