Feeling Christmassy!


Hiya bloggies! I have been feeling rather Christmassy 🙂 I think it is due to the fact that bonfire night is out of the way, Rob’s birthday is out of the way, and that we have started singing/rehearsing Christmas songs at school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That does mean that this weekend I have been listening to Christmas songs as I’ve been doing school work and writing the blog.

I am glad to report that I feel much better about getting back on track with my eats and exercise. I have had a good week including yummy porridges for breakfast, salads for lunches, and a selection of dinners such as omelettes, bolognaise with courgette spaghetti, Thai green prawn curry, and some yummy 97% pork sausages.

Already with getting my eating back on track I am feeling much better. Much more alert, less fatigued, less sick and much less of a stuffy nose and bunged up feeling.

I have managed to fit in a spin class, go swimming and complete a Pilates workout at home this week. Not too bad!

This weekend has been a real catch up weekend. I have only left the flat twice, once which was oh so brief! I have been doing uni work, paperwork for school files, planning and marking. Hours and hours spent at my desk!!! Crazy crazy but will be so worth it in the long run.

I had my 3 QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) skills tests yesterday. Literacy, numeracy and ICT. And I am chuffed to say that I passed them all!!!! First time! Another step closer to becoming a teacher 😀 I have got my first official university observation this week as well, so I have been getting ready for that. Eeek!

I have had lots of yummy foods like smoothies and homemade soups as well. This smoothie was super duper and was made from banana, Kara coconut milk, coconut oil, maca powder, spinach, cacao nibs, coconut, chopped nuts, chopped dates and manuka honey!

This was a delicious butternut squash and apple soup. I put a swirl of Marmite in at the end!

  1. I can’t believe you used to just own black and white clothing! You seem like such a colourful person I can’t imagine that! I’m starting to feel a bit Christmassy now too, can’t wait!

  2. I did a BA in primary education (but decided I didn’t want to be a teacher half way through and dropped the QTS bit and am now a journalist – mad!) and I remember how lovely it was doing the placements at this time with all the Christmas play rehearsals! Congratulations on the skills tests and cool facts, I was the same with clothes but it was only black… 🙂
