- My name is Anna, and I work as a primary school teacher in greater London. I love eating pizza and watching TV with my husband. I also love painting glass, and any other crafty pursuits that give me a chance to make a mess! I am on a bit of a mission to learn how to cook, bake, sew and generally make things before I have children. I'm trying to learn something new each day. I really value your support, so thank you for following me xx

What do you want to be when you grow up?
They thought about what a film about their life so far might be called - and designed a poster of it. I decided mine would be called ' Diary of a Small Girl' (as I'm 4"11) - but didn't share that one with them!
Then we looked at time lines of our lives - and once again they gasped in horror when they heard that I am 25 ("Oh my god - you are OLD!"). Thanks kids.
We spoke about what we'd like to be on our timelines in 10 years time. I am always inspired by their ambition and complete belief that all of their dreams would of course come true - why wouldn't they?
One of them is going to be a part time crime scene investigator and teach sport the rest of the time. Another is going to be a lawyer and a footballer, and one is going to be a sports coach and a mechanic. Why not?!
When I was their age, I wanted to be an artist. Plain and simple. That ambition died a death after some nasty a-levels. But now I am a teacher who comes home to do arty, crafty things in her living room while watching 'Come Dine With Me' - so I like to think I'm fulfilling that ambition in a round about way, and the 5 year old me wouldn't be too disappointed. Anyway, I'm not grown up yet - no matter what the kids think!
So, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Hope you've had a lovely Tuesday,
