Hello from Pop-Up Adventure Play!

Pop-Up Adventure Play is a non-profit play project which I am doing my Playwork placement with. We work with communities to set up play events and offer training and support to continue the project when we move on.

One of my jobs for the week is to promote our website and Facebook group. So this is a link for the Pop-Up Adventure Play Website and if you have time, please join our Facebook group.

Yay for Pop-Up Adventure Play! :)

No for me! :)

I was amused by this brand. Who also agreed with cucumbers and carrots. Yes to vegetables! :)

Tree Icicle

Can you see the icicle? It was a very funny place to have one. I thought it was very cool :)

Snow cake :)

Lots of snow last night, probably about a foot and a half. I've been doing a bit of digging again to help clear drives and stuff. It's quite fun actually. And doesn't it look like a big white cake? It's so pretty. :)

Cheesecake Heaven

I went to the Cheesecake Factory. It made me very very happy. :)

Crazy Plant Food

I went to a supermarket today and saw these on the shelf:

On the left, we have Aloe. On the right, we have Cactus leaves. Now I don't know about you, but I'm a little confused and quite concerned. What kind of recipe involves this type of ingredient? Aloe milkshake? Cactus cake? Thoughts anyone? I'm completely bewildered!

Mini Elephant and Peanut Awesomeness! :)

I saw this today and I thought it was just so cute that I had to share it :)

I'd go there for my haircuts! Do I get peanuts? :)

Just when I thought it had all gone...

... we get more snow! I know lots of people get really sad about snow, but I still can't help but love the stuff. There's just something very magical about it, and I don't think it'll ever wear off for me. Snow is awesome! :)

Good Food and Family Time

I had an awesome meal today at Five Guys Burger and Fries (nom nom nom), and then I caught up with my family on Skype (yay!). It was a fun day :)

Bye bye snow :)

I went for a walk today because it was a beautiful day and just very suddenly overnight, the snow's almost all disappeared! I was so surprised! It's dry and sunny and the last few patches of snow are clinging on to their little white lives. There might be a little more snow in the next couple of weeks, but it's nearly all done now. A big welcome to Spring I think :)

End of the Snow Cave

It's getting warmer so the snow is beginning to melt. My snow cave now looks quite sad really. And brown. It looks pretty good still, but I wouldn't go inside it now. Bye bye snow cave! :)

Conference Call

Okay, well it didn't really work for me for some reason, but I will be attending the next Pop-Up conference call. In the meantime, enjoy the fishies! :) And yay for Pop-Up! :)

Barnes and Noble

This is the biggest bookstore I have ever been to! It has two floors, escalators, a music section, a cafe, a massive sale section, a toy section, a games section and even a whole 2 books on play! I was in there fully engaged for an entire hour and only left because I had to be somewhere else. New favourite bookstore!

Squishy Purple Cow Toy!

A big happy happy birthday to Christabel! Woooo! Hope you have a wonderful birthday oh sister of mine! :)

Wintery Sun

It's been so cold that a bit of sun today has been quite a blessing. There's the sun on it's way to bed. Goodnight sun, hopefully we'll see you again tomorrow! :)

I went to visit my snow cave today and it looks like someone is taking part with my fun...

I'm looking at all the other pictures and there's no stick there, and given that this pile is snow is really quite big then it had to be put there on purpose! Has to be! I can hope! :)

More snow....

It snowed more overnight and my snowcave got filled in with the snowploughed snow. Sigh. Maybe I'll go out later and see what I can do... :) Looks good though eh? :)

Just a little...

Angry birds merchandise! I can't believe they actually sell this kinda stuff! I want things!!!

Snow Cave!

Today, I took an hour out of my day to dig a snow cave! It's a work in progress which I might carry on tomorrow. I fit inside if I crouch a little! Yay! :) This is what I do when I need a break from play theory! :)

Bye Bye Clemson!

The US Play Coalition conference was fun! Here are some highlights:

Yes there was a lake at our hotel, and yes that is a tiger! Clemson was so good to us, thank you all very much! :)
