Back to Normal Life

After three and a half weeks of full time teaching I am back to my normal life again as of today - and boy, have I missed it. I've missed the leisurely morning starts, the silence of the house after everyone has left for the day, the little chats with my good buddy Finn and mostly just a more leisurely pace of life.

It was a hectic time - oh yes indeedy, however I did enjoy so much my time with my little Year One class - such an adorable age. And I have made a heap of new friends amongst the staff - such a terrific bunch of people to work with.

But I am beyond thrilled to be back home again.

And what did I do on my first day at home :: why all the things I love to do when I am a stay at home Mum.

First some dusting and vacuuming, followed by a lovely cup of tea in the sun. Then a bit of grocery shopping upon which I ran into a girlfriend and we had a lovely little natter in the local aisles of IGA. And then the after school pick up and a bit of bickie baking . Ahhh...bliss.

Oops nearly forgot, all the parents of my year one class bought me this lovely bunch of flowers to say thanks for teaching their kids with "much enthusiasm and fun". Twas truly a pleasure.
