Well, its been nearly a month since I last posted owt, and felt it only fair to update whats happened since.
Mrs J had just got confirmation that she had a full-time position with the libraries locally, and this is indeed been great news. It's been a month of adjustment to the new routine, namely me doing the school runs and fitting in work around that, which I've found quite tough. It's not that resent doing it, more that doing this 4 days out of 5, means that I miss both the morning and evening rush hours in the capital.
We've had a chat and the management at the libraries are considering a rejig of Deb's hours which will allow me to do a bit more of the rush hours and balance things out a little.
The journey to primary teaching has started in earnest, my GCSE Maths, English and Science all arrived a couple of weeks back and so 2011 will be the year of learning again! really looking forward to getting back in the swing of it.
Christmas this year has been a very nice low-key affair, my parents came to us christmas eve and stayed over, having dinner with us and then they moved on to one of my brothers for the evening, Santa delivered some nice non-tech presents for the boys, one of the best being a football table - plenty of fun had with that already!
Boxing day was spent at Mrs J's parents with her sisters and their families, always a great time with nieces and nephews, lots of cuddles and laughs. My father in law is an amazing cook, and his customary bubble and squeak didn't disappoint!
Today's been nice, just the four of us, a nice fry up for brunch and then an afternoon of mainly constructing Knex stuff that the boys got for Xmas.
So, I'll leave it there, suffice to say I'll be quietly glad to see the back of 2010, it's been a very rocky period since August, but I'm happy to greet 2011 with a plan for the next few years, and an appreciation for what I have around me, two great children who have fantastic things ahead of them and a wife and partner who I respect and value more than ever.......
That's all, more next year!
