Day 115 of 365: Happy BirFday to Meeeeee!
I turned 30 today, but still business as usual. I've used the mantle to display the lovely cards I have received as well as the beautiful flowers from hubby and MIL & FIL. It has actually brightened the front room up a bit more again and of course, flowers are always nice to have, right? I think so anyway.
I still seem to have "the lurg" as it seems to be affectionately known. I believe it may be sinusitis again, but I am not a medical professional. I was able to pick up some nasal spray and decongestant tablets for day and night at ASDA after work. They're working as well as can be expected, but I definitely can't wait until I am cured of it all.
My placement was in Foundation today, working mostly with Reception on Numeracy and Phonics. I had some down time with Nursery, where I read Goldilocks and then we sang Twinkle Twinkle Little Star as I showed them the American Sign Language for the song. They seemed to like it. Also, I learned a different version from little Molly...it goes "Twinkle Twinkle Chocolate Bar, My dad drives a rusty car." That seemed to turn the whole room into little comedians.
Matt and I are holding off on any big birthday celebrations until next week when we have a bit more money on hand. We're thinking maybe a small daytime road-trip somewhere would be nice. I'll be sure to bring my Kodak either way and report back.
For now, I have Season 1 of Dexter to complete before the meds kick in with drowsy side effects. Party on!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
