Eric didn't open his pub yesterday as he was ill. When I came home from work I was suprised to see him at home. We enjoyed each others company. It was great to be together. Not so great for Eric as he had to sneeze and blow his nose the whole time.

Guess what I had when I woke up this morning????? Indeed, running nose, sneezing the whole time, heavy head!! Yep, I'm sick too. Went to work today as I didn't have to work this afternoon.

I'm off to bed, hope a little sleep will help to feel better tomorrow

I started my album about our holiday in Turkey. These are the first pages about the flight and airport. I used some love, Elsie paper.

This evening I have a meeting with the staff in our school so I'm sure this will be boring. It's always like that. Yikes!! Can't wait till it's 6 pm so that I can go home and maybe scrap some more.

Enjoy your Tuesday!

I made this page for the challenge on the Art Noevoo blog. We had to be tourists in our own country and make a LO about it. My grandmother lives in Brugge and I really love this city. It has a lot of historical houses and beautiful water canals.
Of course there are lots of shops and cosy pubs. Yeah, Brugge is my favourite city!!
(Revlie, I think that I used one of your LO's as inspiration)

More Turkey pics

Yes, indeed, there are still some pics left.

The first week at school was good. I love to teach again. The only thing I hate right now is that I'm still not in my sleeping routine. I can't sleep enough. During summer holidays, I went to bed around midnight but now I need to be in bed around 10.30 pm or I'm too sleepy in the morning. When I'm in bed at 10.30, I'm not tired enough to sleep. I wake up again around 3-4 am and have trouble sleeping again. My alarm is set at 7 am so that doesn't give me a lot of time to sleep. Oh well, I guess I will get used to it in some weeks.

Enjoy the pictures

Our activities the last days

I couldn't resist this cutie

First schooldays

My first days of the schoolyear was good. I was supernervous and couldn't sleep the day before but I guess all teachers are like that. In the morning it was busy because there were books, writing blocks, ... to give to the kids. In the afternoon I started my first lessons and they went ok. It was like I haven't been on summer holidays. All kids were nice and friendly. In the evening, I was so tired. I worked for school till 8 pm and then relaxed. I watched some tv till 10.30 pm and then went to bed.

Today was the second day and I wasn't nervous at all. In the afternoon I got a nice drawing from a girls in my class. She has written 'You are a beautiful and sweet teacher'. I was soooo happy. It's now on the wall in my classroom. Always nice to read stuff like that.

Later today, my sister came to give me my birthday present. I was so happy to see her as she lives 200 kms away from me. She had to be in my city for her job so she came to my house for a quick visit. Guess what she gave me????? A coupon for a wellness center. I can choose from 10 wellness centers, isn't that great?? My sister is such a fantastic girl. Love you, Goelie!!!

Getting nervous

Only 1 day to go and then school starts again in Belgium. Many kids will be sad that the summer vacation is over and so will I. I'll go teaching again. Last year, I didn't have many teaching hours but this year I'll work full time. It will be a big diffrence to me and Eric. I'll be less at home and when I get home, I'll have tons of schoolwork. Oh well, I don't mind. At least I will earn more money, haha. I've done my lesson planning for the first week but I'm still very nervous. It's always like that on the first day after summer vacation.

I made some new LO's the past weeks. Enjoy watching them.
