Another Year

So another year has passed and today is my birthday again.

Last year had its ups and downs, but on the whole I was pretty glad to wave goodbye to 2012. On New Years Eve my husband and I got the usual barrage of txt messages from family and friends wishing us a Happy New Year. With every one I become more and more annoyed with the optimism. I had a horrible year last year, nothing good happened last year, why should the forthcoming year be any different?

After a couple of days wallowing & feeling sorry for myself I decided I was going to MAKE this year better. Last birthday saw me off work with stress, completely unable to make any kind of decision. I could spend 40 minutes stood in the cereal aisle of the supermarket paralysed by the choice on offer! This year my birthday was going to bring changes.

I have finally realised what I have the ability to change and I found the strength to actually do something about it. I handed in my notice at school today and so shall be leaving my teaching position at the end of March. I will register for supply but I am looking forward to spending more time with my kids before they are grown up.

So here is to a fantastic start to 2013!
