Schools days!

By pentaxpatty
Not the happiest of days for some I guess.

Good afternoon, high winds, more rain or well it is autumn in UK. Hope that you are all well. Thank you for kind comments and votes and special user awards, for Unloved, yes the poor old boat is past its best now. More than just a touch up with a paint brush to fix it.Looked so shaby next to some beauties. Thank you to Isabel (Chinga) and Peter (ddolfelin) for their precious awards.

A few hours out with George my pal at Tideswell Cathedral in the Peaks. They had an old school desk from the Tideswell Grammer school set up inside the church, some interesting items. Some you might remember.

Have a good day and keep warm and dry.

Love and light Patty xxSmileSmile

Brings back memories, and as you said not all good. Biology was one of my favourite subjects so good to see the old microscope. A wonderful looking set Patty.

Super set of images Patty, I can remember my school days, we got the slipper for talking in class, even though we were only 7 or 8 years old.

Similar weather here, Patty, almost had to go to church in wellies!! I like the pictures, perhaps as they show times before my school days.

V1 for me.

Dreadful weather here too and it turns out that my farm bred, Border Collie pup from working stock is a complete wuss about rain!

a lovely set Patty
too long ago for me to remember those days in NZ
A very nostalgic set Patty, love the light, rich colours and grain in the wood in your lead.

A fine collection of olden days - I enjoyed school but didn't like the cane which
we got in Ireland.
Imagine beating children because they couldn't understand something!

A super set Patty and I particularly like the etching's in the old wooden desk.
When I was at School my desk looked like it had been attacked by a wood pecker, as I was always drumming on it with two pairs of scissors. Smile
