It has been the warmest day of the year so far today, according to me anyway! Sunshiney delight and, after a fair bit of rain recently, the garden is actually dancing for joy.
Spring bulbs are blooming and new shoots are emerging, some expected and hoped for, others a complete mystery until we see a bit more emerging from the soil. It is a very exciting time!
This is our first time watching what comes up in the garden and, even though we've planted some bits, we weren't here this time last year so each day brings new and exciting discoveries.
At the end of this month we will be marking the first anniversary of living in the borders and my it's been a cracking year! Yesterday was the third session of the Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning course we've been doing which marks half way. It will be good to have the qualification and the people on the course are all really friendly but I'll be glad when it's finished as I'll not have to be working on assignments!
Last week I got an offer for a GCSE examiner position which I was delighted to accept as it brings a little financial boost and will be funding a new camera. After several 'camera not working at the wedding' nightmares I need to have a back up camera before photographing the lovely Kate and Andrew's wedding in October! So it's all go in a good way. Enjoying work with plenty of time to enjoy the sunny days in the garden. On this day when another friend has left full time teaching I wish him huge amounts of happiness in his next adventure!
