A new academic year has begun, having already survived the first five days I can honestly say it has arrived with a bang and a boom. Am I entirely organised, up to date and keeping it together effortlessly? Well no, but if that ever happens I can guarantee I’ll have forgotten something exceptionally important. Having said that, the class has gradually grown and continues to do so, our routines are starting to flow and I remain optimistic as to the year ahead. There’s been a couple of hiccups along the way, tears and tantrums and I’ve been peed on already but is there a job I’d rather be doing? No… because life is an adventure to be enjoyed, engaged with, curious about and of course… survived with flair!
