Year 2 Day 2: Autumn Has Arrived
It's here and in full force. Leaves are changing to rustic reds and yellows and the night air now has a distinct chill. I think it may even be time to put away the flip-flops and bring out the woolly jumpers. It really is my favourite time of year. The one thing I am noticing that I miss the most about America this time of year is College Football on a Saturday accompanied with a traditional helping of good 'ole tailgating. Nothing beats that!
I've decided that since having moved to our house here in Brierley Hill at the end of June, I want to really get to know the area like I did when we lived in Kingswinford. There are plenty of places to walk around and I could use the exercise the closer I get to the end of this pregnancy.
I'm also hoping that now we've entered the month of October I will start getting more calls for supply work. I haven't had one yet and my one-to-one tuition assignment in Kingswinford is coming to a close with the final session tomorrow. I have really only about 8-10 weeks until I'll have to stop for a while and it would do the checking account some good as well as take some pressure off dear husband -- who is working ever so diligently to take care of us.
Until I get that magical call, however, it's Little Susie Homemaker for this vertically-challenged, yet feisty, American.
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!
