Keeping the ball rolling
Hello everybody! Thanks to Simon for getting us teachers started... the student bloggers are putting us to shame! It’s lovely to have the chance to say hello again, even though it doesn’t feel like that long ago since I was blogging in August. Not much has changed since then except I’m feeling more settled in Frome and Louie and Oslo (my two boys) are of course just a little bit bigger. It’s Oslo’s 1st birthday on Friday! Crazy.
I’ve been doing some more freelance work recently, writing materials for teachers to use in their English classrooms. It’s quite creative and I like thinking about how to introduce language points and skills in a fun and interesting way… well, hopefully they’re fun and interesting! Fitting it all in around the kids is a bit hectic but I enjoy it so it's worth it.
We all went to Paris recently on the Eurostar train to celebrate our ten year anniversary. Actually, it wasn’t the anniversary of our wedding but ten years since our first “date”. Paris was fabulous, I’d never been there before. I think next time we might go without the kids though as it would be a bit more romantic :-) Here are a couple of photos for you…
Next week I’m going to Madrid to visit my brother and his family who live over there. I’ll be sure to post some photos and let you know how the trip goes. I’m going with my parents and Louie and Oslo – Ed (my husband) has to stay here and work… poor him! Actually I think he’s probably looking forward to a bit of peace and quiet, I know I would be :-)
It’s been great reading all your blogs and comments over the last few months, I’m looking forward to hearing from everyone this month. A big hello to the student bloggers I blogged with, Kiran, Adriana and Yumi, and of course everyone else too!
Okay, better go - the kids are literally bouncing off the walls.
p.s. Hopefully heading to Turkey next year some time Simon - I'll be in touch if we make it over there!
