Today is the Technical Skills Ontario Competition and I have the privilege of being one of the judges for the fashion section, yea!! This is the fourth, maybe fifth year that I have been participating and I am always amazed to see what the student come up with not only in the fashion but the other categories as well. I purposely go earlier to see the work in progress in other categories, not allowed to see the fashion in progress... I wish the Minister of education would be there to see the students working and talk to the teachers as well as the judges to get feedback on the education system and how to improve it right from the sources mostly affected by it. I for one would be more than happy to share my opinion and thoughts on the subject! I can see my children's eyes rolling at this very moment and hear the groans of "oh mom" LOL!
Anyway I'm excited to be spending an evening with like minded individuals talking about our passion in garment construction.
Now from the "planning way ahead" category; I had the grandchildren here for the weekend and apparently my grandson likes the way I babysit..
Granson, "Nonna did you babysit us when mom and dad were away when we were little?"
Me, "yes I did"
Grandson, "That's good so when I have kids will you babysit them when I go away for work too?"
Grandson, "You see I'm going to be driving for the TTC Express and we go away a lot so I want you to babysit my kids, my sister is going to be a ballerina and will be away too"
Me, "Sure I can help you out"
My grandson is 6! Guess I'm going to have to live a good long time... LOL!!!
