Coming Back

It's been a while...a HUGE while.

I haven't been blogging because I am in the writing part of my research and thought I should be devoting all my spare time to that.

But do you know what? The study hasn't been going so well.

Some things have gotten in the way
  • moving cities
  • new job
  • earthquake
  • response to trauma
  • moving out of damaged classroom into another
  • starting school again and teaching children dealing with ongoing trauma
These are not excuses...well maybe they are a bit. Anyway, I now have an extension until the end of the year to get my dissertation in.
I saw this as a negative but actually it has given me the gift of time.


Time to write and do other things like
  • enjoy my husband
  • explore my area and out-lying areas
  • get fitter and stronger
  • hang out with friends
  • make new friends
  • do a great job in my new role
  • BLOG!
I have kept in the know through regularly reading your blogs, and it kind of feels like a moral duty to contribute as well, so, no more voyeurism!

Besides, I've got a lot to say, so watch this space!

    awesome... love your blog and hilarious posts. I'm a teacher too, trying to juggle it all, and blogging has dropped off the radar for me too the last few months. But I'm back as well!

    PS sending some Auckland hugs your way for the kids in your classroom as they deal with ongoing earthquake trauma. And to you too : )
