5 for Friday {10th Jan}

So I just realised the 7th was my one year Blogging anniversary. And I missed it! :( I have plans for a 1 year/200+ followers (I think it may be 250, whoops) giveaway I just need to get organised...

On another note, I am linking up with Doodle Bugs to share about my week!

1. I'm still on holidays {yay} and it has been HOT this week so we have been either pottering in the garden or staying in the air-conditioning as much as possible. We have been in at my new classroom &school cleaning up. This is the rubbish/stuff we don't want that we have removed from the room. Crazy.

2. The hubs is the more organised of the two of us so he has given up his last week of holidays to help me out at work almost all week (he spent his day off helping a mate lay pavers in 36C heat for 11 hours, the man is crazy). As he said, if I'm organised it'll mean I'm not stressed and it'll save him hassle later. Oh, isn't he a sweetie? {not}
Our rooms had these big, really heavy old computer benches in them. The rooms look so much bigger now they are gone and it will give us a whole wall for storage.

3. Made a huge fried rice to use up the last of the Christmas leftovers. It was delicious!

4. The hubs made me some whisper phones this week. We have been at Bunnings more times this last week than I would usually like! Just need to cover them in something to make 'em pretty.

5. My new teaching buddy and I have been busy getting everything together for our letters that get sent home to our Preps next week. I whipped up this Google Form for our new parents to fill out & we are sending the link home in the letters. Hopefully this will save on paper and help us be better organised.

Have a great weekend,

  1. Wow Bec you and your husband make a great team! My partner use to cut my laminating but that novelty has now worn off! He is a keeper!

    1. He is pretty handy Alex but he draws the line at cutting out laminating too! That novelty only lasted about a year before he cottoned on that he didn't 'have' to help. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Congrats on the blogiversary! That is an amazing accomplishment! Your fried rice looks yummy....

  3. Hi Bec!

    So jealous of your whisper phones. They have been on my to do list for well over a year! Do you mind letting me know how expensive it was to make the whole set?? I don't have a husband to make mine, but we have some lovely maintenance men who are use to coming into my room and doing the heavy lifting/furniture assembly/creature removal! :)

    Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep!
