Shhhhh! I am sneaking back quietly.....
A quick update from me...well, I did it! I became a teacher! When I went in to training I thought I was going to be a upper KS2 teacher or even secondary at some point...but then I discovered year 1 (5 and 6 year olds) - and they are fantastic!
So, I have done my 1 year training, and survived 1 year as a Newly Qualified Teacher and now I am in my second year in Year 1 - with the most fantastic class. Yes, it is manic, yes there are stressful times - but heck, I wouldn't change it for a second.
I have stopped crafting for over two years now (last blog post was when I stopped - Feb 2014!) so nearly 3 years! Now things are calming down a little I have been able to pick up with my hobbies - I am breaking in and schooling a young horse for a friend of mine (lots of poop and a few scary times!) and I restarted crafting when I went on the fantastic crafty weekend during October half term.
If you have not seen the crafty weekend, click on the link in my sidebar - we have such a giggle! And a little bit of crafting gets done.
Anyway, I am off to go and "do" something - having spent the day thus far Christmas shopping and cleaning, I think I deserve a play. I was a good teach and got my marking done yesterday evening, so just have a little planning to nail tomorrow.
I'm so glad to be back and can't wait to catch up with everyone in blogland!
