Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength.

Well I didn't get the job. In the end there was only one teaching position going when the school reopens next year so M, my teaching colleague and I were up for the same job, as well as anyone else who applied. M got the position which was really as it should be. He is ten years younger than me, and I have to admit, has a lot more enthusiasm. So I am happy for him.
I have the rest of the year to work - 2 more weeks in this term and then 10 weeks in the final term.
So what does the future hold? I am pretty sure I will retire, as to what form that will actually take I am not quite sure. I will probably sell my house. I am very interested in Tiny Houses, even though I have a big house with lots of stuff. I would not build a tiny house but I think I would be quite happy to live in a caravan park in a self contained unit. Click here to see the type of thing I would be looking at. But that is a way off for now. My current house needs a bit of fixing which P:-) is going to help me with.
I have a passion for teaching young people with reading difficulties and I would probably do some private tutoring if I retire.
P:-) says I should just take it all one step at a time, but I do like to have a plan.
|Spring in the Camellia Gardens|
On Saturday, the first day of spring P:-)'s newest granddaughter had a naming day in lieu of a christening. It was held in the Camellia Gardens in Caringbah. It was a beautiful day. A celebrant officiated.
A special candle with the baby's name on it was lit and held by the god mother.
Baby R had the best booties on. They were crocheted red with large satin bows on them with big faux rubies in the centre.

Sunday was Fathers' Day and we had afternoon tea at P:-)'s place for his family.
So it was a very pleasant weekend. The weather is beautiful, just as it should be in early Spring and there are many more sunny days forecast to come.
