Currently April!!!

Forgive me bloggers for I have not blogged.

Life has been somewhat hectic.

It started with me moving from Kindergarten up to Year 5/6 at the beginning of the year - which was a massive mind adjustment.

Then we moved out of our house and knocked it down - very emotional.

Then I applied for a new job - at a different school - and was successful!!!!! - which was awesome.

But then I got extremely unwell and ended up in the hospital on an antibiotic drip, to which I had an allergic reaction, which resulted in 6 doctor visits and 1 hospital visit in under 2 weeks.

I couldnt even start my new job on the agreed date - I had 3 days off school which has NEVER happened.

But now I am there and learning the ropes - will blog about this another time.

Anyway, on to CURRENTLY with Farley

Listening - we are having some family to hang out today on Good Friday. I might get a jump on eating Easter Eggs too

Loving- after what has been going on with me, I am so thankful for 2 weeks break! I am planning some things with my kids and some R&R time for myself.

Thinking - my new school and new job are very very different to my old school. My teaching is one of a mentor to the Year One and Two teachers and is not a teaching position. I have brought home a lot of stuff to read through so I can hit the ground running for Term 2.

Wanting - My poor pup had to have exploratory surgery on her paw this week and she looks a little sad. It seems to have done the trick thought as she is beginning to walk normally. But vets are SOOOOO expensive! I dont even want to think about how many hundreds of dollars it has cost.

Needing - holidays for me usually means haircut, mani and pedi etc. Its the only time I am not rushing and get to enjoy it. Who doesnt love someone else washing your hair (its totally my favourite part of a haircut)

My blog name - no hidden meanings but considering a bit of a blog makeover - what do you think?


  1. Wow! What a hectic start to your school year! I hope you truly enjoy your 2 weeks off! Take some time to veg out! :) Excited to hear about your new position and what you get to do with it!

  2. Why does life throw us so many challenges all at once!? Hoping life gets a bit smoother for you this term. Your new school is so lucky to have you! :)

  3. You are so lucky to have a two week break!!! I love working with beginning teachers!! They are so excited and eager to try new ideas :)

  4. I have always loved your blog name Brooke! There are so many teachable moments on a daily basis that it links to so much of life!

  5. I hope your pup is feeling a bit better. I agree, vets are not cheap, but we will pay them anything to make our fur babies feel better.
    Enjoy your break! I am going back tomorrow for my last round (quarter 4).
