Hey hey its OVER!

My exams are OVER! Done! Completed! Written!

What a super fantastic awesome feeling! We survived – me, my kids and parents. We made it ๐Ÿ™‚ I am very proud of us all. Its the first exams I have written in 9 years. Its the first time my kids have had to deal with it. And we did ok!

Have to mention a few things though that helped me get through the past month!

Coloured Pens – love them. They make my life bright and happy.

Herbal tea – kept me hydrated (and calm)

The Bay – it really speaks for itself

Jonathan – for taking me to watch movies! The distraction was really welcomed!

Sweets – for keeping me energised.

Body Thrills – bath time over study weekends was break time. It was time to relax and unwind. Nothing better than doing it with my collection of body thrillsimg_1338

Mr Roses – for our conversations. Conversations about random stuff but conversations that made me laugh.

Music – especially Harris Tweed, Henry Ate and Alanis Morissette. They block out the sounds of kids and booking tvs perfectly.

My bed -due to the fact that it is mid winter here – THIS is where I have spent my days! img_1335

And of course my friends! who beleive in me! Seriously I think you guys would beleive I could climb Everest tomorrow if I asked you ๐Ÿ™‚ But it means alot to me that you have such faith in me. Thank you!

Now life can return to normal for a few weeks until assignments start again!

Today I am at maintenance court – hopefully getting final closure on that drama!

    Brilliant. We all need to be able to mark off little successes- life doesn’t stop, so it’s good to have milestones. All the best for today- can only imagine that that is an emotional wringer.
    Enjoy a (small) breathing space.
