I feel like I start every post off by apologising for the lack of writing lately, but no excuses this time – I’ve just been too busy enjoying life.
The big birthday last week was lovely. Emma woke me up early before school so I spent the morning finishing off Breaking Bad – the ending was good, but the sense of relief that I felt about getting to the end without finding out how it ended was ridiculous!
The rest of the day was pretty relaxed – I had an Indonesian lesson and the other teachers had organised a card for me.
The real excitement started with my evening class. They have been excited about this for weeks – secretly planning and trying to find out what my favourite songs were. It was so adorable – they bought me an amazing cake and they had learnt a few of my favourite songs (guitar, singing and beatbox combo).
It’s so lovely to think that I’ve only been teaching these students for about a month and they cared enough to do all this ❤
In the evening I had plans to get dinner at my favourite seafood restaurant with a few friends. By the time I'd returned from my class they'd gathered a few more teachers and it turned in to quite the party!
We had so.much.food!
It was always going to be a bit rubbish being away from my family and best friends on my birthday, but I’m sure I’ll remember it for years to come.
