Sorry it’s been so long since my last post. Here’s what I’ve been up to over the last couple of weeks:
1. New job – I’m now a classroom assistant so I had a week of training before the children started back where I got to know the staff. It’s a nice school and I’ve gotten used to most of the daily work. I was shy at first but now that it’s the 2nd week of children being back, I’ve gotten to know a lot of names and faces from my class and others. We do different zones for games and activities outside and that has helped me to get to know a lot of children which is great. I’d love to teach dances to the kids but right now it’s still hectic so I’ll wait and see what the zone is like in a few more weeks after the hype has died down a bit. I’m still making a few mistakes but I’ll get there.
2. Spent the weekend with Anton and Callum – My sister was going away overnight so we had a sleepover at her house. Anton was super excited. I took them to C+J’s animal park and have a picnic. It was cold and rained a bit but we had a good time. Anton and I even stroked a little crocodile! Callum had the fright of his life twice when we were there. Naomi went with us so that we could take one each if they ran off in different directions so she was carrying Callum. Just as we walked past them, two started fighting and making really loud screechy noises. Well, didn’t Callum jump out of his skin. Honestly it was so funny that I couldn’t even ask if he was OK without laughing. He came over to me and clung so tightly, telling me he was scared and not to laugh, poor guy. Just before that he had a scare when sheep suddenly baa’d beside him. Anton loved the snake but we didn’t get to touch it. After we got back we watched a movie with popcorn, made buns and made a fort. All fun things for these guys. Both boys were completely wrecked so they fell asleep within minutes of being put to bed. The next night, even though their parents were back, Callum asked if I was staying for a sleepover again while I was putting him to bed and drew a picture happily, wiggling away and told me it was him Anton and me and then the animals. Anton didn’t want me to leave either. Such cuties.
3. Gym – OK I admit I’ve been slacking with this one. Before starting my job I was going almost every day. Since work started I only go once or twice a week. I’ve really got to get back into it again. As far as the diet goes….I’ve derailed almost completely. Even today, I had 3 donuts for my break! Clean and lean is starting up again soon so I’ll have to get back on it for that.
However, I have still been thinking about my blog and have been taking photos for it. My phones pretty much given up on life and is going nuts vibrating for no reason/turning itself off and not recognising when I type so it’s been a pain to even get the photos off my phone (linking it up to the computer doesn’t work any more either) so there’s a whole backlog of posts to catch up on!
