As March comes to a close, I’ve spent a little time looking back upon the past month gone by. So much has altered and changed that my life as I knew it is barely recognisable.
As always I will endeavour to share some of the many things which I have ‘Liked and Loved‘ throughout the past month.
Getting Back Into The Classroom
As you may have read in my previous instalment of ‘Liked and Loved’, I was recently offered a temporary ‘Teaching Assistant’ role which I have continued to carry out over the past few weeks. I have since gone on to apply for a contracted position which I was successful in attaining.…
Today marked the end of an era as I worked my final shift behind the bar pulling pints for the punters. I’ve spent the majority of my life working in that pub and whilst I’ll certainly be back as a customer, my days of being a barmaid are well and truly over.
I’ve got to know some fantastic people in the pub over the years that I’ve worked there, all of which I’ll miss seeing but will do my best to stay in touch with.
Having finished my final shift, I then sat myself at the bar along with my friends and folks to celebrate by sharing a few drinks before heading home.…
I don’t even know where to begin with this post, I can’t for the life of me figure out what to write or where to start in order to explain what has been a rather incredible and overwhelming couple of days.
As Disney rather famously acclaimed (and as I continue to assure my children yet have failed to believe myself until recently) “If you can dream it, you can do it”. As it turns out my dreams have finally come true and whilst I am still finding it rather difficult to believe and to accept as reality, I am beginning to get to grips with the idea that life may not always give you lemons after all.…
It’s been blinking ages since I’ve sat down without reason to write. Theres so much that I could say, so many ideas for posts that I have up my sleeve but I seem to be lacking some serious motivation as despite having the time I simply haven’t had the urge to sit and write as I once did.
I feel as if I’m spinning way too many plates and at some point one of them (or more) is going to come crashing down upon me. If I’m not running around the house catching up on the chores then I’m either tending to the kids, spending time within School on a voluntary basis, attending courses or working behind the bar.…
We are once again at the end of another weekend, it won’t be long before the summer holidays are upon us and weekdays will blur into weekends as we take a well-deserved rest from the regular routine.
I have always been a sucker for routine, I like to know when, where and what I’m doing and whilst I welcome the holidays I must admit that I find the lack of routine sets me on edge somewhat. Thinking back to the Christmas break I was barely able to fathom which day of the week it was until routine returned.
I have fond memories of being a Teacher, I had a strict routine, I had planners filled with lists, schedules and almost each and every hour of my day was planned to perfection.…
