Spectacularly Busy

Hi there friends! I know, isn't everyone busy...but really I have been.

The beginning of a school year for any teacher is just a blur, but this year I am teaching infants for the first time in over 10 years so it has been extra challenging getting things set up. On top of that, I have had my own two to chase around and my new obsession with running to fit in.

If I look back and think of what to fill you in on...hmm where do I start. After my mammoth Tupperware party I received my bits and pieces. I didn't order heaps, as you know it does add up quickly, but I will buy it bit by bit until I have everything on my wish list.

Connor, although not 100% well, has been swimming his little butt off. We are a very sports keen area, so to come 6th in his age race at the zone was a great achievement!

I have renewed my love of books and reading. First I read these...

The Kite runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns were particularly fabulous.

These indicate my latest obsession - running and all kinds of inspiring stories about crazy people who run ridiculous distances. There has been a couple more that I have lent to friends...  
 And somehow I have found the odd moment to watch my kids favourite TV show...the Biggest Loser and the odd popcorn/movie afternoon - usually Friday after school. (apologies for the quality of these images)

On the home front, not much has happened. can I admit that? well it was a break that just had to happen. Unless you count my bamboo which is growing nice and fast. Will show some pics soon. I haven't been able to buy/pick up a house magazine for a couple of weeks now. I am drying out after a large overdose. I think after our trip to Noosa I will get back on the horse and look forward to a new project. 

I have still kept an eye on your blogs - just not quite as often. I am so pleased to see everyone id traveling well. I'll be back soon:)



  1. Hi Kylie!

    Would you believe I actually read back through your blog yesterday, to look at photos of a beautifully finished house (as I sit here waiting for mine!) Now I feel like I should have been out for a run instead!!!!! I need to take your lead and get back to the gym, where I haven't been since before Christmas.

    Busy is good, and taking a break from all the housey stuff is probably a nice time out for you.

    Enjoy Noosa! Is that an Easter holiday break?

    Nice to hear from you!

    1. Great to hear from you M! Your house is looking fantastic! So exciting watching the progress!

  2. Hi Kylie,

    Me too - teaching infants (year 2) after years on upper primary. It has been a bit of a culture shock - but I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel (hopefully it's not a train coming to run me over - lol) I am starting to feel almost organised and have routines in place that the kids and I can work with.

    Starting to emerge from my study - luckily as the kids after school activities are about to start in full force with winter sports training and school musical rehearsals.

    Enjoy Noosa - just 4 weeks til we are on holidays now :)

    1. Good to know I'm not the only one in the new school year haze. Hope the home is going well. Did you end up planting the bamboo yet! Ours has really taken off!

  3. It's good to have you back Kylie :)

    Your new pantry goodies look nice too.


  4. Happy Easter Kylie, enjoy the Easter break & don't eat too many Easter eggs!!!
