    It is lovely isn't it. Just been walking the dog and almost walked into a lamp post because I was admiring the moon.

    Wouldn't be the first time I've done that either. :sorry:

    I still haven't seen Mars. :sigh:

    And we are totally into it still. Walks in Devon are much more interesting now. Dog walking proves pleasantly painful. :D And Steven's yeargroup have Space as their topic this term and I think his head may just about explode with excitement. He's doing a presentation on Saturn with some very special photos in it. :wink:

    Oh and I was chatting to a teacher today who was amazed that you can see Jupiter from your back garden and she's going to have a look. :thumbsup:

    They had Mr Starman in today. Big inflatable dome in the hall and all the kids crawl in and he projects the universe on to the inside - like a portable planetarium. The kids loved it. And secretly the teachers did too.

    I wasn't allowed in. :(

    the weather so far this year has been appalling and there really hasn't been any opportunity to get out although the will is definitely still there.
