I’m a teacher. This means one awesome thing… school holidays! I know, you have a friend who’s a teacher and they’re forever posting on Facebook how many days till holidays, and it drives you nuts. I know, then they start posting how many days left till they have to return to school. Then when they’re at school they post how many reports they have to write… and it all starts to seem like one endless whinge… i know, i’m a teacher! We love to whinge! But.. i’m not whinging at the moment, actually I try not to whinge at all (smug pat on the back for me!) i’m really happy right now and it’s not from things i’m doing, they certainly help, but it’s from the people that surround me. So, this is for them… I’m celebrating YOU!
