Why I love my job :) (pic)

Friday, March 22, 2013

See the blue bead?


Today a student gave it to me, along with a few lollies (candy) and a note saying that I am the best teacher she has ever had.

OK, all together now:
AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

Completely made my day!!! Makes up for all the talkers and children who decided today was 'do the opposite of what Miss Bubble says' day.

TGIF!

    Keep the note....I keep all of the really good ones, and on cr*ppy days, I reread them and remind myself of why I do what I do. You've reached this girl and made an impact on her. That's wonderful special!

    I love those kind of days. It makes teaching so fulfilling.

Enjoy those around you, and let them know how much you love them.

Today I did this

Thursday, March 21, 2013



Signed up for a 6k! It is in 3 weeks, and I'm super excited. My training is going well (or it was, before the rolled ankle...) and I am ready to get into running again. It is SO much easier now that I'm lighter and fitter, and I'm starting to enjoy it a lot. 6K should be OK, since I can run just over 4 without trouble. Will do a 5k next week and a 6k the week after to prepare.

What's on in Bubbleland this week

Sunday, March 17, 2013

A bit of a rundown of my busy week!

Monday - Boxing class, 5km run
Tuesday - Half day at work to go to a union meeting, weights
Wednesday - Book some plane tickets for May (further in advance means cheaper!), enter a 6k that is in just under a month
Thursday - 5km Run
Friday - Weights and OMG it's Friday!

Not as full as some, but it keeps me busy!

    We have testing this week, too! Wish it would stop, I haven't had time to teach them anything, so I'm not sure what on earth we are testing them for!

    Sounds like a fun week! We have big ASSessments. Tuesday--long composition, Thursday and Friday--ELA. My poor babies. Nine year olds don't need this much stress. Keep up the good work! emoticon

Missing my man already :(

Sunday, March 17, 2013

We had a lovely weekend, including JET BOATING on Auckland Harbour

Our boat

Dry to start with...

You can't see it but we are SOAKED in this picture!


Then we went out for dinner


And had lunch with the grandparents, and my tech-savvy nana snapped this on her iPad


Then I dropped him at the airport and we got very emotional. Saying goodbye is getting harder and harder :( 11 days until I see him again, and it is for easter weekend so I get 4 whole days!!

    Aww, I know how hard it is to say goodbye. When my hubby and I were dating, we lived a 2.5 hour drive apart for the entire time we dated (a little over 3 years) and we saw each other every other weekend.

Sounds like a nice weekend for you two, even with the emotional goodbye.

    LOL, no we didn't go out barefooted, we just hadn't put them on yet. I drive barefoot, and his were in the garage

    I didn't! Everyone who was stationary in my house felt it, but I was walking down the stairs and didn't feel a thing (or believe my poor boyfriend who insisted he just felt an earthquake!)

    Sounds like the weekend was good:-)

Your tech-savvy nana has an *i-pad* - she sure is 'tech savvy' !!!! It's a pretty good snap, too!

Did you get to feel the earthquakes this a/noon? One was just off where I live, but didn't feel a thing - my son text me from Auckland to alert me to it.

The boyfriend is visiting tomorrow!!

Thursday, March 14, 2013

This weekend is Lukes weekend to visit me. So I get to see my super cute boyfriend AND I don't have to get on a plane. I've been on 12 this year, and that is a lot for someone who hates flying. I am so excited to have him in my town! I'm taking him jet boating on Auckland Harbour (a surprise activity!), taking him for dinner at one of my favourite places, and he gets to meet all 3 of my grandparents at Sunday lunch (lucky him, right?)

So I won't be doing any formal exercise this weekend. I have earned my weekend off. In the past 5 days I have run 12.6km, done 2 boxing classes, strength trained twice, plus I have a 4km run on the cards tomorrow. Yep, I get a break!

I'll be back on Sunday night, hopefully with some nice pictures of our weekend!

    Enjoy your break! I have one coming up next month when I go to see my boyfriend. I plan on taking one day to eat whatever i want when we have a date night and I wont be doing any high intensity workouts like I normally do, but I will be going for a walk every morning, he takes forever to wakeup anyway so that gives me something to do :) Have a great time!
