I haven't been active for quite a while due to various things happening and emotions I had to deal with.
I did my orientation with the New South Wales Dep. of Ed. and Training the previous week and 5 days of in school assessment last week. All went well and apparently I am still fit and able to teach. Yeah for me!! So now to go and hand out my shortened version of my resume to different schools in the area. We'll see if they like my face :)
On the emotional side, without blabbing too many personal details I'll just say that moving abroad is not for sissies. We left South Africa August 2006 and started a new life some where else and life carries on and life is good and then we got bad news from SA and the Soccer World Cup happens in your birthland and then.... And you are not so strong anymore.
But here we are, the sun is shining, I have a new washing machine, Carli had her 13th sleepover birthday party here last night, (lots of laughter and noise and tired eyes this morning..), we will be with friends later today and on we go! So many blessings and another sunrise with wonderful promises.
