it’s been a while, but i’ve finally been able to recover my account.  every time i’ve reset my password, someone else goes in and resets it to something else.  to whomever was changing my password, than you for not getting rid of my content.  to everyone else, have a happy mummy cookie while i decide in which direction i want to take my blog in.

New Year’s Resolutions 2015

6 Jan

because i need to take a break from my assignment (that i oughtn’t be taking a break from but that’s neither here nor there…) and based on a conversation that i had with a coworker and with my boyfriend the other night, here is my list of New Year’s Resolutions. 01. Make it to the end of January in one piece. 02. Get to the middle of February and plan something exciting for Half Term. 03. Last a few more days until March holidays and boyfriend’s birthday. 04. Use time wisely throughout March until Easter Holidays. 05. Realise that it’s not the end of the world anytime soon and that everything is going to be ok because April is when i can start to look for a teaching job. 06. Have good leads going into May half term. 07. FIND A JOB! 08. FINISH MY COURSE WITHOUT HAVING LOST MY MIND. 09. FIND A KICK ASS FLAT. 10. Holidays in Spain. or France. or wherever we decide to go. If you take that as my “How not to lose my mind in the last six months of my PGCE”, my major resolutions are to be more responsible with my money because i have a lot of big things coming up and to realise that the world isn’t ending / don’t worry so much / EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OK. I also need to realise that I can’t control the actions of other people and that the only person that I can make act like an adult is myself. (i feel this is less a resolution and more of an advice to myself…j’habite avec des singes ET IL NE FAUT PAS LES AIMER. ON DOIT S’OCCUPER AVEC VOUS ET VOUS-MÊME SEULEMENT. IL FAUT SOUVENIR QUE VOUS NE LES AVEZ PAS CHOISIS. VOUS AVEZ CHOISI SEULEMENT LA MAISON, LA VILLE, ET ICI, C’EST TOUT.) this seems to be a feasible list, broken down into manageable bits….two to three week bites so that i don’t get so overwhelmed. i think that if i do this, then the next six or seven months will be a massive success. i’m going to make the most of it and give it a go and hope for the best because if i repeat the ten points above to myself as applicable, then they will be self fulfilling prophecies. the days will come and go and the time will pass; there’s no stopping that. here’s to making the best of it… wish me luck. x

Le Tour Eiffel, Paris. 2012

Le Tour Eiffel, Paris. 2012

Because sometimes you really just need a cliché photo of the Eiffel Tower to make you happy. The first day that I was in Paris, I do what I always do: I take an orientation walk around the city and make mental notes of what I would like to see and what I would like to add to my itinerary. The good thing about Paris is that no matter where you are, the Eiffel Tower is always there so no matter where you are, as long as you can find it, you can never get lost. This day, I had lunch at the Tuileries and walked towards the Champs Élysées, just a little stroll; nothing more. I walked around the round a bout, [not in traffic, bien sur!] and saw the top of the tower and…well, there we go. I decided to take the back roads, stopped for a pastry, stopped to people watch, stopped for a beverage, etc. and there it was. It was like a cartoon, the trees pulled away, the sun was shining, and the birds were singing. It was perfect.

Fins aviat que a mi no em perdreu mai! – Pep Guardiola

I’m going back to the UK for good this year. I have to. I am terrified and I cannot wait and this could not have come at a better time.
