For the last few weeks, I’ve been enjoying my first summer holidays in a while. We’re not going on holiday, as we’ve already been glamping, so I’ve got a few jobs I want to do, as well as prepping for the new term in September. So far, I’ve spent a day in the garden, doing some much needed work; we’ve redecorated our front room and hallway and I’ve got a few more jobs up my sleeve that I’d like to get done before September. Not only that, but I’m managing to fit in a little bit of rest and relaxation, including another visit to Fawsley Hall spa. I’m also working my way through the box set of Desperate Housewives in Now TV. I forgot how awesome it was. Since completing my skirt at the dressmaking class, I’ve also got a list of things I’d like to make to hone my sewing skills.
I’ve also had a massive clear out of both my home office and my wardrobe. There’s nothing like a good declutter to help you feel fresh. One of the best things about teaching, in my view, is coloring in my timetable and organising my calendar for the year ahead, which I did yesterday and had a whale of a time doing it. Gotta love all the new stationery and organising! Along with preparing for the new term, I’m also thinking about making sure we’ve got lots of healthy meals for the first few weeks so am spending a lot of time on Pinterest, looking for lots of inspiration. If you’ve got any tips for a lazy cook, let me know!
