Currently 2015! And a bit of a review of 2014

Welcome to 2015!! As this is the first time I've managed to blog in over a month, I have a lot to catch up on and there's no better way to do that than with a little Currently and linking up with Farley.

Listening- My hubs always puts the radio on when he gets up, I love that man. It's all old school this morning- love some Queen.

Loving- It's summer here and it's been a fantastic break so far. We are in about week 2 of our 6 week break and it has been much needed. We have had a couple of day trips away. Follow me on Instagram to check them out + all my school stuff, I tend to Insta more than blog at the minute as it's quicker. I'm also too lazy to have two accounts, as with my blog it's a mix of everything.
After the holidays I will be moving from Prep to teach Grade 3/4. I am so, so excited. Really looking forward to {another} fresh start.

Thinking- 2014 hasn't really been our year, I've been a total stress bucket and complete cow at times. We've had a lot going on personally and work has been really tough (new school, new co-workers, etc). It's been a struggle. 
I have the best support system out there. I am a very, very lucky girl. We honestly wouldn't be where we are this year without these great people in our life, I know if they could have they would have picked me up and carried me but they've stood silently by, ready to jump in as needed, as they (including my Hubs) know I'm an independent, stubborn pain in the butt. They've lifted me up, given me a reality check as needed, kicked my arse and are the best people I know. Thank you.

Wanting- Rest! Sleep! Holidays not to end :) Visit the beach, city, etc, etc. To exercise EVERY day. Basically to chill and enjoy life, which I've done a pretty solid job of the last 2 weeks, I'm planning to continue it. I've even gone two whole weeks without checking my work emails, it's a record.

Needing to do those odd jobs that have slipped over Christmas, like pay bills, doctor's appointments, etc. I'm hoping to not think about work for a bit. I vow I won't go in to do serious stuff (other than feed the fish) until the 19th of Jan.

2015 plans:
-Yes to being less of a stress bucket.
-Maybe to a big holiday as I have 10 weeks of long service leave sitting there but that will all depend. Would love to go to the US.
-I wish for our plans for our future to work out, as they truly didn't in 2014. There's a bigger plan out there for us, unfortunately we have to sit back a little now and let the universe do its thing.

Wishing you a fantastic, fun filled 2015!!

  1. One of the coolest things about this blogging world is that we can connect with teachers all over the world! I've always wanted to go to Australia. It was so strange to read your comment about summer break (might be a little envious of the weather I'm sure you're having) since we're on winter break here in Texas. Enjoy the rest of your break!

    Terrific Teaching and Learning

  2. WOW! Summer break! Love reading about teachers from other areas.

  3. Hi Bec,

    I'm with you on 2014 not being so great... I'm so ready for a fresh start and for some positive things to happen in 2015. So glad you have a wonderful support network around you. :) I'm hoping to do some more travel this year as well! It's always nice to have something exciting to look forward to.

    Enjoy the rest of your holidays and here's to an amazing year ahead!!

    Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep!

  4. Hey there! I just stumbled across your blog. Summer break sounds amazing right about now. I hope you enjoyed your holidays. I have a teaching blog and do blog design as well. I'd love it if you stopped by and checked it out!
