I'm in the kitchen with my mum, bacon's in the frying pan, I've got a cup of tea in hand and I'm a happy bunny. I'm wearing my roughest jeans and a hoodie and I've definitely got that Sunday feeling. Work last week was better than I ever could have imagined. I went back into … Continue reading The only way is up
Oh, I do love a Sunday. This one feels like it has come around so fast; I feel like it was only a few minutes ago I was sat on that train writing last week's post. I had a great day with my friends in London and didn't want to come home. This week's not … Continue reading A week in the life
I just closed my laptop lid and then opened it again about five times in a row. Honestly? This week at work has been really hard, more challenging than ever, and right now I'm full of butterflies. The minute I'm done writing this I'm going to go sit at the piano and sing my heart … Continue reading “Always look ahead, but never look back” – Miles Davis

Our night out started with Prosecco and ended with MacDonald's, need I say more? If you've never tried MacDonald's cheesy bites, be … Continue reading Adventure of a Lifetime

This half term … Continue reading “If you focus too far in front of you, you won’t see the shiny thing out of the corner of your eye” – Tim Minchin
This week's been exhausting. In fact, if I'd tried to write this post a couple of days ago I'm sure I just would have grumbled about being tired and feeling anxious and about the gloomy weather forecast for the weekend.
I'm sat at my desk, the sun has got its hat on, Passenger's album 'All the Little Lights' is whizzing 'round the record player and I'm making my way through a massive mug of tea. I can't contain my excitement: It's GAME OF THRONES DAY. Last week, I worked my first day in a school! … Continue reading Hip Hip Hip Hip Hooray
This week, I almost gave up on Plan A, get a job in a primary school, all together. I've had my moody-face on. Somehow, I had managed to convince myself that every day spent out of work was a waste of life. I'd been searching for a job in teaching for just a month and a half … Continue reading Time isn’t wasted if you enjoyed wasting it
