Under An English Sky Has New Digs!
Hello Lovelies, I'm so excited to share my new blogging home with you. If you visited my old home on Blogspot and found yourself magically transported through a wormhole and landed here with a bump, it's because I didn't want to lose my dear old friends who have been visiting me for years. I've put a little coding...

Under An English Sky Yarns
Do you know, I have found this transition from homeschooling to trying to figure out what my new purpose so difficult.

At Home in the Country
Aaah, country living - I truly love it. The only downside to living on a farm is the flies! Oh-my-gosh...they are horrendous in summer. I haven't had to live with fly problems since South Africa. But this summer, especially on hot days like we have had over the weekend, they are everywhere. They poop everywhere...little black dots all...

What Curriculum Do I Need for the American SAT Exam?
This is a question that seems to crop up a lot. In the UK when you take IGCSE's and A-Levels, you would check what exam board your nearest exam centre uses, you would then buy the Edexcel/Cambridge/AQA etc course for English/Maths/Fill-in-your-subject. Right? The American system is different. That is not how it works and actually...therein lies the beauty...
