It's the final count down!

Just one more week of school before Bighead and I can whole-heartily tackle our increasingly large list of things to do before we fly.

I'm such a big bundle of mixed emotions right now, it's a bizarre feeling.

I have begun packing up my classroom :(

The children have been giving me goodbye letters and cards for about two weeks now and although I'm sure they will miss me, I'm think that I'll miss them more.

As I say goodbye to friends and colleagues at school this week, I'll be trying hard to remember this:

"Don't cry because it's over, smile that it happened"

Dreaming of Satay...

I can almost taste it (don't ya love the multi-tasking!)

Locked and Loaded

The tickets are booked.

July 19th, 5 weeks and 6 days to go.

5 weeks and 6 days of wearing my winter woolies, spending time with my friends and family, cuddling my cats, walking on footpaths, crossing the road safely, buying things with set price tags, doing the dishes, watching western tv, eating feijoas, devouring delicious dairy products and generally existing within my comfort zone.

5 weeks and 6 days until I'll be surrounded by honking horns, eating balinese food, swimming, diving and snorkeling in crystal clear luke warm waters, riding scooters, living out of a backpack, gorging myself on satay, wearing my jandles everyday and generally existing outside of my comfort zone.

I can't wait!

Getting the hang of it

Well, as you may have noticed I have now included a 'subscribe to my blog' section. I know... you're thinking, "wow, she's getting pretty clever!" It seems simple but it did take me a while and I'm still not completely sure how it all works, but hey! it looks good! 

I can't believe how old and tech savvy-less (if that's even a term??) I feel sometimes. I'm only 30 and technology is already passing me by... 

How can my generation of teachers teach with it, if we don't know how to use it? or even more cause for concern, how can generations of teachers before me teach with it, if they don't even know it exists?

Can we keep up?
