Round up

This week:

+The weather went in one giant big leap from summer to winter (completely bypassing autumn), it was a bit of a shock to the system. There is something about the morning light this time of the year that makes me run around like a mad woman trying to capture it before work (consequently making me late for work).

 +I returned back to school for my second term of being a teacher. I had a good chat to myself over the holidays and have fresh plans about my teaching practice and real expectation of my students. I feel happy and confident. I started implementing my new statergies in the first lessons with much less stress to myself and confidently been supported in my ideas by a training day that we attended on our first day back on campus. 

+I attended my first senior college ball, managing to wear sheer tights and high heels for the entire time. Truly a miracle for this ever growing body. I am shattered that I forgot to document the moment with a selfie.

+I sold one of my caravans and I am looking at selling the other vintage one soon. With the new baby only 17 weeks away I feel that my free time will once again be cut short and the caravans need to go to a new home where they can be cared for and looked after in a proper way. I was desperately sad to see the first one go but know its for the best. The husband is thrilled to be rid of them. I had to make him stay inside so I could get the correct price for it as I am sure that he would have given them away for free if I turned my back at the wrong time. I will look at getting a vintage caravan of my very own when time becomes a little less precious to me in a couple of years. It's time to be realistic about time.

+I have managed to collect another 12 garbage bags full of 'stuff' to be returned to Vinnie's. I am feeling cleansed once more and prepared to go into the new term with a clear head space.

+The capert layers put new carpet in the bedroom. It is all fancy, charcoal in colour and so soft to walk on. So grateful. Next on the bedroom makeover list is the curtains.

+My crafting included two new skirts - one for me one for the little girl. Both skirts include hidden pockets and the cutest animal fabric ever known to man. On the knitting project - It is still a 'slow craft' made even slower when I realised, a fair way through my pattern, that I had completed the pattern backwards. After many rows were unwound I succeed in tackling the pattern with greater confidence on the second attempt. Two thumbs up to myself for managing to succeed in not throwing it across the room and giving up.
