A quick catch up and a giveaway!

Hi everyone!  Just a quick blog post this evening!

Latoya at Flying into First Grade is having a fabulous giveaway and I'm sure you won't want to miss it!

I've been umming and ahhing for weeks, but I finally bit the bullet and joined Teaching Blog Traffic School!  I wish I had joined up ages ago - I realise I have so much to learn!  I've been enjoying it tremendously, but neglecting lots of other things!!  I can't wait to put it all into action, but wish I had more hours in the day!  Highly recommended!

I'm a lover of lists - they're all over my desk but I lose them constantly, so I rarely get the chance to do the satisfying ticks!  As this is a quick post, I'm adding a list!  Please excuse the randomness.......
  • I feel like I should hang a huge sign out side of my home, saying COME AND GET YOUR GERMS HERE!  I'm sure the majority of teachers get this at the beginning of the year.......with a large, noisy class I have already lost my voice!  Either my immune system is rubbish (or I'm getting too old for this!), but I have a horrible cold and sore throat.  My poor husband is ill and will be recuperating for a couple of weeks, so we're quite the grumpy pair at the moment!  Louder with the sympathy violins, please!!
  • I'm finding my class tough going.....I'm officially exhausted already......say no more....!
  • I bought a gorgeous handbag (purse) to cheer myself up.....
  • I have loads of TpT projects half finished!  I have nearly reached the first financial goal I set myself for TpT!  Only a little one, but big to me!
  • Update on my precious furbaby - she's doing well so far! Cue the awww factor pics.....apologies for this.....I can't help myself!

  • I bought this for my class, can't wait to use it and will be back with a blog post full of ideas (hopefully!).

  • Last but not least - Downton Abbey is back tomorrow - yay!  I so love a period drama!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!


  1. Hi Wendy,
    Thank you for stopping by my blog.

  2. Hi! I would really like to hear how you like the Teaching Blog Traffic School. I've been considering signing up but just haven't made the commitment. Let me know what you think! Thanks! And I'm your 101 follower, I just put in to join your giveaway too. :)

  3. Hi there,
    Thank you so much for joining my wee blog!

    I'm really enjoying the traffic school - there's an amazing amount of content, so commitment is important, but there's loads of time to get your head around it. In many ways it depends what you know. For someone new to the blogging world, it's an absolute must. Charity is very knowledgeable and I found having all the necessary information in one place was just what I needed because it can be revisited at your leisure. I'm about two thirds of the way through and will be going back to the beginning to make sure I take action on the essentials. Charity is also extremely helpful with any questions you might have. Personally speaking I would definitely recommend it! Hope that helps a wee bit!
    Thank you so much for joining my giveaway!
