Piddy the Fool 2017

Piddy the Fool 2017

Pranks, hoaxes, conspiracy theories; I love them all (providing they don’t bring harm to people) and today is the day to celebrate en masse. Happy April Fool’s Day, the first of the month!

I thought I’d re-post this from last year…with a few 2017 updates that have graced my timeline this morning. ‘What is she talking about?‘ I hear you say.

Well, it’s the day when it’s acceptable to play jokes on one another, the more elaborate the better. And this tomfoolery is acknowledged the world over, with similar festivals of mirth dating back thousands of years – the Roman’s had the best name for theirs, it was totes HILARIA!

Moodle Army #9: Comfort Zone

Moodle Army #9: Comfort Zone

It’s time to show off the artistic talents in this week’s edition of the Moodle Army!

Comfort zones…whether taken literally or figuratively, they conjure images of safety, cosiness, and rooms adorned in as many Hygge-worthy soft furnishings as you can crochet from alpaca wool (in my head anyway!) So had I gone a step too far by asking the Moodle recruits to leave such wondrous surroundings?
