Since we last spoke…

Hi everyone :)

This is my first blog post for the year!  I don’t know where the last few weeks have gone but I wanted to let you know that I’m doing fine… I’m alive… I’m happy and 2014 is proving to be a great year so far.

I was going through Ali Edwards’ blog and saw she’d done THIS post called ‘Around here’.  I liked the idea but came up with my own prompt… so here goes:

Since we last spoke… Toby and I are living in Gisborne and most of the boxes have been unpacked.  There are still things I can’t find but I know they’ll turn up.

Since we last spoke… Mikayla has taken on a job working full-time as an au pair (nanny) and she loves it!

Since we last spoke… Krystal has been accepted into Canterbury University to study teaching… seems she wants to follow in my footsteps.

Since we last spoke… I’ve been ‘smoke-free’ for 28 days!  I’ve also been ‘V’ free for 30 days.  To anyone out there that thinks they can’t do it… I highly recommend Champix because it makes it so much easier. 
Since we last spoke… my car is at the mechanics because the coil and spark plugs have done something really stupid and ‘fried’ themselves.  Thankfully I’ll have my car back tomorrow… along with a bill for $560.00

Since we last spoke… I’ve finished my first day teaching at my new school.  I really enjoy my new team and my new class.  I’ve been warmly welcomed and already making new friends.

Since we last spoke… I’ve realised how far behind I’ve gotten with all my projects and I’ve decided to not stress about it so much because that just makes the problem worse.  I WILL catch up… it’s just not going to be today.

  4. Last time we spoke: You were going to ring me back!
