I'm Back!


I'm back.
After a much needed long break including a two week break in Barcelona I am feeling refreshed and ready to go.
It will be a busy year for me.
On September 6th I begin a year-long PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education )to retrain as an English teacher working with 11 to 18-year-olds.
I am looking forward to the course but apprehensive too.
It means that work, together with family pressures, may mean sporadic absences from the blog, but I will do my best to keep posting.
Another piece of news is that I have lost 10 pounds with Weight Watchers since June and here's the reward I motivated myself with - a Butter dress.
It's good to be back.

Today I wore:
Shoes - TK Maxx
Dress- Butter by Nadia

  2. Welcome back! You look great.

    A full time PGCE course and a family (and a blog) is going to be hard going, so I wish you all the very best. It'll all be worth it though!
