Wow am I slack.
I recontracted and got an iPhone so switched from android to apple. I have only just thought to download a blogger app. Whoops.
So, life is busy of course. I'm feeling more settled taking care of 4 Children. To be honest it was a tough gig for a long time and I've never felt quite so mentally unstable in my life!! My Mum is fantastic and has been my saving grace and I also have to admit here that my hubby has been brilliant too. They got me through some precarious times.
All this led me to learning to take care of myself. And by this I mean doing things I enjoy. At times it's hard to justify when I have so many things to do and so little time, it's so tempting to just drop the things I had planned to myself.
I have been lucky enough to score a teaching contract from July until the end of the school year. It's brilliant because it is just one day a week. I am teaching Grade 4/5 (10/11 year olds) which is a huge challenge for me. I am much more comfortable with 5-8 year olds! Add to that it is a challenging class anyway makes for some stressful times but it is worth it.
I also took it upon myself to begin going to the gym. Of course I have a few kgs I would like to shift but mostly it was to own my body again. I felt really cumbersome and awkward. I needed to get that athletic feel back. Plus some headspace time is always a bonus. It has worked wonders for me mentally, just having the freedom to listen to my music and connect with it is something I had lost, and missed more than I realised.
So, that's me and where I'm at. 😃
The babies just keep coming!
