Of course, it’s only quiet on the blogfront, because I’m paddling like a mad duck under the water, or in my real world and that’s because I have a new job with different hours and I am finding my feet all over again.
Also, I’m full of cliches lately and I really don’t want to do that to you.
Late last year I stood at the crossroads of my newly 40 year old life and decided I wanted to do something completely different. Instead of the cooking/catering/canteen managing life I’ve been leading I decided I wanted MORE. More fulfilling, more challenging, more mental – could I be more mental? Don’t answer that.
And as a result I’m now working with students who have special needs in a local mainstream highschool. And I am on the steepest learning curve that I can remember since I had my first baby.
It’s scary. And wonderful. It’s exciting. And now I know all the tricks my kids could possibly pull on me. HAH!
It also means I have to check my work email, which means I’m even more computer’ed out by the end of the day. I’m somewhat of a technophobe, remember. Ironic really, because I’ve also started writing articles for Suite 101, which is totally serious, third person and the complete opposite of how I instinctively write – so it’s a good balancer and a different way of thinking for me.
So, call me unreliable – but I aint going anywhere. I still read y’all while the kids try to get out of doing their homework. But then I go laugh at my chooks and play with the horse. And then I sleep. Sleep is good.
