Busy Busy Busy!

WOW. It's been such a long time since my last post - I didn't even realise how long. Things have been pretty manic here - I went through a break up, quit my job, went to Rome, moved house and started teacher training at Cambridge University... so I hope you'll forgive me for not having time to blog!

In the meantime, I've tried to do the odd bit of crafting here and there, and have still been receiving my Glossyboxes (which I still love - they seem to always come at just the right point in the month, when I need a little cheer)... Let's have a little catch up.

Maisie and Elvis still do not get on, in fact, as I write this, he is chasing her around the room while she growls at him. Elvis has been neutered (poor baby) but this hasn't eased his boyish playfulness! We decided to try and restore some of his manliness with a new collar:

He is growing so fast, he is nearly the same size as Maisie, and he has a lot of growing left to do! Poor Maisie.

Rome was absolutely wonderful, and just what I needed to get away from it all. Katiekat and I crammed as much as we could into three days, including a trip up Mount Vesuvius and into Pompeii, which was just amazing. The Trevi Fountain was by far my favourite though, and is now my favourite place in the whole world. It is stunning.

At the top of Mount Vesuvius, one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world!
As I also said, I have moved house. I moved in with a friend in September, just round the corner from where I was before with my Mum - I just needed to get away! Living back at home after living on my own for three years at uni was tough. It's more money but it's an amazing house and so much less stress! The cats are happy here (Elvis has just started going outside, and has already lost one collar), but Maisie has been back twice to visit Nanny... 

I'm currently loving the course, everyone on it is so supportive and friendly, and all the lessons are so much fun and I am learning so much everyday. I'm on placement in a school at the moment, and have taught a few lessons which I've really enjoyed. Last week I did a maths lesson where we made treasure maps and played battleships to learn co-ordinates. Being a teacher just lets me be creative and pass it on to others! 

So happy right now.
