Big News

To Tell You


I mentioned here some exciting news I may have to tell.....and then I went a little bit quiet! 

Sorry.

I had a job interview, but had to keep quiet until the outcome was made public down 'ere!

As you know I have been venturing back into teaching this year after a fairly long stint as a mum at home.

Although for a few years at home I loved it and felt happy and content, in the last three or four years I have felt something was missing. I have been dissatisfied with the relentless and often mundane tasks I found myself repeating and felt a yearning to return to my "career".

So , although supply teaching has got busier and busier ( some weeks I am working almost full time) a full time, 2 term post came up locally and I decided to apply. I don't know where it will lead, I didn't interview well , but...

I got the job!

So from January I shall be teaching full time!

I am so thrilled. 

It is a job I love. I find it inspiring and fulfilling. Tiring and exhausting, but unbelievably rewarding! 

I can't wait.

I feel happier than I have in a long time, content, settled and looking forward to the future again!

Bring on 2014.

New Beginnings!

    1. Thanks Jenny - I didn't expect to get it - I asked before I applied just to make sure I wasnt wasting my time and was told to apply but it would be competitive! I was sooooo nervous! x

  6. Big congratulations and well done Claire! It's nice to have that stability and to find that mojo for the thing that you loved originally. And just think of all the shopping you can do (online as you will have no time to hit the shops) with your new salary.

    1. Thank you Sue - been a long time though! I think it will hit me pretty hard teaching full time - the kids are being great about it and as they are a bit older now I am hoping they will help out?!?! The first thing my hubby did was go and suss out a new bike for himself when he realised I'd got the job. Typical. Ive decided to pay it into a separate account for now so I get to keep some for treats! Plus side is I get paid for school holidays - yeah!
