Another week has flown by already. I stormed through Week 2 and managed to get some nice classroom routines in place- which I believe makes everyone involved feel better.
Many of you know that I have adopted two new years resolutions for 2011.
Number 1: not to accept plastic bags, especially at the supermarket (I really try at this but sometimes fail spectacularly)
Number 2: engage with as many social invitations as possible. This is where I feel my success has been this week. I've got myself lined up for an afterschool activity every week day. I'm on my way to making lots of new friends.
Another tick on the list is that I managed to get most of my programmes for school written this weekend. Feels good to get them printed. School free weekends will soon be do-able.
The weather has been phonomenal this week! Lightning striking the ground, cracking the earth and making the entire class jump. About 5 minutes til home time it normally pours down and twice this week it started up early afternoon making all the kids go crazy. I know what that old adage 'crazy weather crazy kids' means now. With all the rain it has been alot cooler which has been lovely. Last night I didn't even have the fan on!!!
The only downer is that I am not 100%. It's not that I'm sick but I have lost my voice to some extent. I'm blaming it on the constant transitioning between air con and hot, humid air. I think I also have an ear infection. Luckily, I think I am able to get access to a bulk billing doctor up here and get this... they give you the medicine for free! That's the word on the street from my doctor friends anyway.
Ok, time for this week's Top Ten. Thanks again for all of last week's comments. I love, love, love getting them.
Have a happy week and I'll have a dance for you in the summer rain (I'll probably even sing that song while doing it)!
Week 2 Top Ten
1. Productive Sunday getting programs done
2. Using the whipper snipper to chop the weeds in my newly spruced garden. So satisfying!
3. Watching Jonathen (Yr 2 teacher) sing in front of the entire pub at Karaoke on Saturday night
4. Friday night drinks at MJ's house, relaxed, chilled night with MJ's amazing spinach and feta rolls
5. Rearranging my house. (Well Mia I have been here 3 weeks now).
6. Aqua aerobics on Saturday morning. Lots of laughs all in the name of fitness.
7. A delicious dinner cooked for me by Kellie on Saturday night (pre karaoke)
8.Still being on the same tank of fuel I got on January 16th! And still not even used 1/4 of a tank!
9.Practising for my Bronze and making it way under the 13 minute time limit
10.Joining a mixed netball team (official name still to be decided) and the local bookclub (but Captain Corelli's Mandolin is proving quite a challenging read).
That's all from me this week. Next week I'm meant to be doing my Pool Bronze so I can take my class on a surf camp later this year. Hope my ears have recovered by then. Have a great week.
