So, this year I've decided to shake it up around here and add in a few new regular features in the hope it will keep me blogging, plus I can't get into a routine with it all as well! This first new series I'm starting is inspired by all the people who do 5 on Friday, but as I'm a teacher, I'm using my least favourite phrase of 2stars and a wish - my kids love it when they see this marking in their books!
For those who don't know, 2stars & a wish is a way of marking that gives two things that the child has done well, plus one thing to improve on next time - I'm going to use this to mark my week, plus i plan to include pictures from my week.
* - A great Christmas at home, fully rested and ready to go back to school. It was nice to spend Christmas at my parents house, although my mum is a real feeder, for some reason we had up to 4 puddings on the go at any one point!
I know I've gained a bit of Xmas chub, but oh well, it was worth it for being so chilled out.
* - Lots of lovely, exciting presents from Christmas, I have been well & truly spoilt this year, from make up to clothes, plus loads of Lush stuff! Plus I treated myself to some bits from Lush in the sales so I can't wait to start enjoying those!
Wish - one thing that could have been improved was that we lost the house -boooo - sadly yesterday we got a call to say our seller was pulling out and wouldn't be putting the house back on for another year. I kinda feel like I'm going through a bit of a break up at the moment, I knew deep down something didn't feel quite right with it, but it still hurts a bit. We did start to look but it feel too early, so we will just keep saving for now!
Christmas - Bowl of nuts, Indiana Jones, Xmas tree before and after, I cooked this dinner, drink, no alarm!
Christmas - Comfy dog, Boxing Day Buffet, Panto, Champagne, Tree in Croydon, Grumpy Face, Small Sale Haul!
So there we go, my first week! A good end of 2013 but a crap start to 2014 - oh well, it can only improve!
How was you week? Xx
