Brilliant Artwork by a Little Kid!

I was in a Primary School recently, showing the kids the Energy Presentation. After they had seen it, I got them to design their own 'Energy Saving Super Heroes'. One little boy, who was only about five or six, came up with these fantastic characters, based on 'cops' - the S.W.A.T team (I don't actually know what that means). I thought the whole, 'What can we do to save power?' 'Don't take a bath, take a shower' idea was absolutely brilliant! He didn't have any help, other than watching my PowerPoint of Tiddles and the Bunnies; really good work! He was such a tiny, little guy too! Probably the best thing about my job is getting to meet and work with these amazing kids, they blow me away with their perception and creativity, every time.

Tiddles meets the Queen!

I can't believe this, but Tiddles has had lunch with Queen Elizabeth at a posh place in Dumfries! He certainly knows how to schmooze, that Orange Tiger! The invitation was supposed to be for me, but as I was going to be in Italy, Tiddles said he would go in my place! It's been ages since I've written anything on my poor little neglected blog, for which I apologise, but Eco-Schools has been so full-on - I've visited 64 schools and spoken to nearly 3,500 children! Always accompanied by my faithful Friend, Tiddles and the odd Bunny! I kind of 'see' some of you on Facebook, which is lovely, so please add me as a friend, as it's a bit easier to keep in touch and say Hi. I think of you all often and look forward to blogging a bit more now the schools have broken up. Tiddles tells me his next appearance will be in 'OK' magazine, so watch this space!
