Reading a whole book in 2 sittings when you've been unable to concentrate on a book in ages. Christmas presents in the post. Wrapping (despite the fact I hate it) well co-ordinated presents. Watching Drag Race and cutting out. Voices of Fire. Being able to use something time and time again because it works. Watching … Continue reading Happy times!

Beaming at some of the scores. Commenting on homework. Working through reports. Going into school for a meeting. Seeing my classroom all set up for … Continue reading A month in the life of me… May edition!
