What a Year

I’ve done it.

Or at least nearly…just waiting for the paperwork to officially be signed, but I am a fully qualified teacher.

Gosh that feels scary writing that, but equally exciting. I’ve spent the last year or so working up to this moment; many late nights writing and planning, many tears shed and wobbly moments, but equally many laughs and stories to get me through.

Get Hygge With It

If you haven’t heard of hygge where have you been? (I should perhaps point out that hygge is not pronounced like jiggie but with a instead of a j, but more like hue-gah). This way of living has Danish origins but is completely applicable to every walk of life.
