Currently February!

Yay, it's currently time! I'm linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade to share what I'm up to this month :)


It is HOT here again (apparently we are tipped for high temps all February). The poor air conditioner has been on for 3 days straight.


Very excited to have met some lovely Victorian bloggers in person for lunch today. It was great to catch-up with Stef, Paula & Alison in real-life.


Lunch conversation sparked some new ideas for this week. I need to change the plan! 


I love being back at work {3 days in} but am missing my husband as he is busy helping his folks build a deck on the weekends. Last week I had the goal of leaving work by 4.30pm so that we would have time at home to catch-up. Hoping to keep this up most days this year.


I am actually feeling great about my new job, classroom and kidlets but more time is always nice.

2 Truths

1. Yes, I have a shoe addiction. I think the last count was 34. I also have a dress buying addiction which is worse... near 50, I know, I know... And yes, I do clean out my wardrobe- this is stuff I wear :)
3. I'm a baker in my heart, soul & shoes! The hubs and I are trying to be healthy after Christmas so I have been banned from baking. It's killing me.

A Lie

2. Unfortunately I got the klutz gene not the co-ordinated one. Being at a new school I have a deep fear that people will throw stuff at/to me... my old teaching peeps knew not to. I've started to warn people but the day will come when I'll look like a twit that can't catch, kick or throw... Which is true :)

Happy February,

  1. My recommendation is to find some healthy baking! That way you get to keep up your passion, AND stay on the diet!!
    We start back on Monday, and I'm not sure I'm ready!!! Hope week 2 is just as awesome!!

    1. Like the tip Erin, I am a biscuit & cake baker {and eater} normally. If you have any recipes send them my way! Good luck with starting back at work.

  2. Oh, I wish I was a baker! I can't seem to make things turn out - apparently I don't take directions well? lol My poor kids and hubby have let me know it's ok to just give up on that dream.

  4. Thanks for sharing, Perry! AC units sure brings relief against the heat. Having your unit on for three straight days may put extra amount of pressure that may cause certain parts to wear and possibly break down. Make sure to have experts take a look at your unit every once in a while. Good day! :)

  5. This is a great list! And I must say, there are a lot of good things that had happened to you this year. As for your air conditioning unit, it’s understandable why you used it for 3 straight days, what with the temp and all during that time of the year. Just don’t forget to clean and check it regularly, to ensure that it still in a good condition.
