More resolutions, my fruitcake challenge update and a trip to London

I have often heard people say that it would be great to be a child again because children are carefree and don’t have the same worries as adults do. I usually disagree with the idea that kids are carefree. They have worries but adults don’t consider them as real worries. I feel sorry for my students sometimes. They are only 7 or 8 years old and I see the pressure they get to pass all their exams or the struggle they can have being accepted by all their peers. God love them because they,in general, work hard and do their best. I was thinking about this recently and I saw a website on Facebook that shared some resolutions of children. They are, as you would expect, brilliant and made me smile. Kids do make us laugh with their honesty! I had to share some of these with you because the resolutions are show real hopes and desires 😊.

    1. Hi Anna! Thank you so much! A very happy and healthy new year to you too! It is great to be on holiday and escape the routine! And living in Spain, it is just wonderful and a bit strange to hear English everywhere! And people are so much more polite here! Love it! 😘😘😘😘😘😘

      1. Thank you, Natascha! πŸ™‚ I’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying your holiday! I love the photo of you in the red telephone booth! So fun! πŸ™‚ I hope you’ll share more photos on your blog! πŸ˜‰
        Have a wonderful time! xo

  2. So cute Natascha! I love it! I remember in kindergarten, my son saying he wanted to “give money to old women”. I don’t know where he got that notion, but his sweet teacher said she hoped she’d be a recipient, lol. And I agree, their pressures are no less sincere. πŸ™‚

    1. It is true that you can’t always know what inspires kids to say or do things! Their pressures are real, like you say. Not long ago, one of my students was upset that he wasn’t invited to a birthday party. The boy who had the party defended himself by saying that his mom said that he could only invite 6 people and that the other boy always hit him on the playground. Meanwhile, another student said that his parents said he could invite as many people as he wanted. I thought, “Oh my gosh..even a birthday party can have heavy social complications!” 😨

    1. Thank you so much! It is nice to be away from the routine for a few days! I love the way kids think haha! Sending a hug and kiss from London xo 😊😊😊😊

  3. Wow! Such cute resolutions by those kids! Iam a great Calvin and hobbes fan! Totally love those comics. My day doesn’t start without reading a comic strip of C&H on the paper..I made plum cake and fruit cake for Christmas, but due to exams I couldn’t take part😐

    1. Calvin is brilliant! He is my favourite! I like the Far Side too! You can still take part if you want! You can still share the recipe and photo or whatever you like! πŸ‘πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜

      1. I din make a post Natascha! The plum cake is our old traditional family recipe and fruit cake was Freda’s recipe!…I feel it’s too late to make the plum cake post now after Christmas

  4. I love these resolutions that you put up! And yes I guess I had overlooked the fact that children have real worries and temporarily erased mine from my mind as well
