Holidays!

As I write this, I have just started Easter break!

Oh, how I adore Easter break. By this point in the year I am so ready for a good three weeks of taking it down a notch or two. I do work over Easter (I’ll be in my classroom tomorrow and Wednesday and have a tonne of reading and research to do tomorrow and Thursday for example), but the whole break from long long days / commuting / wearing smart clothes (lol!) is a welcome one. I love Christmas too, of course, but it’s always crazy busy, and summer is grand but tends to get too long for me by about mid August!

Easter, like the third bowl of porridge, tends to be juuuuuuust right. 🙂

My Easter break got off to a pleasant start – lunch with colleagues and a pretty present from Matthew Friday….

….spring cleaning at a leisurely pace and a trip to see ‘Hairspray’ on Saturday….

….and tea and cakes and talk with five of my dear friends on Sunday. I love hanging out with my girls.

And now it’s Monday and I’m blogging instead of teaching maths. Yeah, I’m loving this break so far! Have a great week, all!

    I am so envious of your break right now! Yah, I know I just had one, but since I was a-travelling, it didn't allow me for any complete downtime.Anyway, at least this weekend is a four-day weekend. I'm so excited for that.And, since I still have a student teacher, I'm reading blogs during my prep instead of doing stuff. 🙂

    I'm also envious, but I know how hard good teachers work, and you deserve it, honey! Enjoy!
