Five for Friday 18.9.15

Happy Friday everyone!!

So i'm taking part in another Five for Friday hosted by the wonderful Doodle Bugs Teaching.

So, this week has been crazy busy and i've had loads on but now I'm sat trying to think of 5 things i've done- I can't order my thoughts! So, here goes...

Well, this week I started my Christmas shopping!! Can you believe it's only 97 sleeps until the big day?!

This is very last minute for me, I am usually done by April the latest, so panic is starting to set in. So, I am busy working my way through my shopping list to get everything done this weekend hopefully!

I managed to finish a new home/school teacher communication book and get it uploaded to TpT, these are a GOD SEND especially when working with Spec Ed. It's great and has lots of room to communicate daily to students families as well as sharing different info in it too. I recommend binding it into a book and laminate a front and back page to keep it strong and will last longer!

Keep your eyes peeled for more resources coming soon - I have a busy weekend planned!

I have also been trying to plan a Halloween outfit for a Halloween party we have this year. I was thinking about being a purple minion.. but we are also intending on going to Disney, Florida for Halloween next year and hear everyone dresses up for that - so i'm inclined to go for something disney! AGH the stress!!

Our holiday for April is fully booked and sorted now! I finished all the final preparations and add-ons this week so it's all sorted ready to go! We are doing 2 days in Dublin, 7 days in Florida, 4 days in Texas then home to recover from jet lag! I am so excited to be in Florida for Easter! EEK!

This week I celebrated hitting 500 followers on my TpT store - now i'm up to 513! I can remember being stuck on 13 for ages, then getting super excited when I reached just 100 - now I look back and laugh because if you had asked me back then, if one day I would have 500 followers I'd have laughed you off the face of the internet! Now i'm so thankful, chuffed and just overwhelmed! I can't wait to keep creating and growing - thank you to all my followers, supporters and all those positive reinforcers :)

  3. Congrats on 500 followers! I reached 100 around the end of summer and was so excited! I am trying not to think about Christmas because I haven't even started shopping. (I am a procrastinator.) By the way, I love your numbers. They look like they are showing the first 5 days of Creation! :)

    1. Thanks! Keep going - you'll be amazed at how quickly it builds up, it's so exciting!! Thanks - the numbers are my favourites! :)

  4. Lol you crack me up about Christmas! I'll probably give you anxiety by saying this but I don't start shopping until late October!! And congrats on hitting 500 followers!! WOOTWOOT :)

    Have a great weekend!
