The Wait is Over!!!!!!

So after the year that I've had, with all the stressing, the hair pulling, the confusion and the learning, it has all paid off!

Yesterday I recieved a phone call asking if I would be interested in teaching positions in a certain area, "Absolutely" I told them, and was then asked if I would like to be considered for a position at a school that is in a pretty awesome location (a location that I was not expecting at all as I had assumed it would be very difficult to get into!), and of course my response was "YES!!".  So then, I was contacted by one of the schools Deputies and told them the names of teacher who would give me a reference, and was told that everything would be put into motion so that my future could be sorted out ASAP!  I didn't hear anymore from them yesterday and was starting to think that maybe they had found someone better then me....

But this morning, before 8am, I got the all important phone call with the official offer of the teaching position, which I gladly accepted - without hesitating!  I had of course already discussed the possibility of moving etc., with my man, and he was very happy and supportive of the idea - we have been looking for an opening to move for a while now!  So now, with my teacher housing application submitted, and my form for my Official Academic Transcript printed (I just now have to get the $16.50 together to pay for it and submit the form) so I can get it and submit a JP signed copy to the necessary places, I will have to start planning the big move!  Hopefully I hear about teacher accommodation in the next few weeks, otherwise we're going to have to fork out a lot of money to rent a house! :S

I'm so excited that I can't keep my smile off my face!!  I can't believe that after some of the crap and the tough blows that we have been dealt this year, it has finally paid off, my future is secured and I have a pretty good job to walk into next year!!

So, for something to do, I decided to go away with the little man out to my parents place.  Now when I stopped to think about it, I actually hadn't been out 'home' in well over a year - that's the longest it's ever been, couldn't believe that, but when I thought about it, it has been a CRAZY year!  Between me undertaking the full time uni course, doing full-time prac and internship, huge assignments, meeting deadlines, learning new skills and things, the Big man working like crazy and starting his new job - which he loves btw (so cruisy!), and him referreeing all the time, we have literally not been able to scratch ourselves, let alone think of our little man - thankfully, he's fine and we did get to spend quality time with him (in between all the craziness!).  So it was easy to see how more than a year could have passed since I'd been out to stay at Mum and Dad's place!

Now don't get me wrong, I absolutely love going out home and spending time with my parents at their place and all that, but with no mobile phone reception - apart from the 1 bar that comes and goes, snail speed dial-up internet, a teeny tiny tv (their nice flat screen was in getting fixed up after it blew thanks to a lightning strike), and 1 tv channel (not even one of the good ones), air con in 1 room in the house (nothing in the lounge room - just a pedestal fan), after 5 days I was kind of starting to loose my mind!!!  I was a pretty good sport about it all though, managing to sweat it out and deal with watching the same kiddie movies over and over and attempting to entertain the little man even though he was hot, tired and really cranky!

My mum and I got to talking and couldn't get over the fact that everywhere else around has reception and will get digital tv and good internet, and they miss out!  It's a joke!  There's not even any incentives to live out there or any help that they can get to afford the specific things that they need to get even just normal analogue tv (my parents need to install a satellite dish so they can watch tv, which is an absolute joke!).  Their town is severely overlooked when it comes to all the new fangled technologies that they are introducing into our lives and expected to conform to!  I think it's a joke, and something does need to be done about it!  Instead of thinking up all these great amazing wizz-bang things, people need to come out to these smaller communities who can't access any of these new technologies, and just see for themselves what really works and what doesn't!!!

My rant, yep that's it for now!  I'm sitting here with all fingers, toes and legs crossed in hopes that the school I was just told about will ring me and offer me a job!!

So again not much has been happening round here.  I actually think that I'm starting to go a little stir crazy, not having anything to do and all!  Was so bored at the end of last week, I made myself go to the gym - just to get out of the house! :S

I also set about and cleaned the house making it spotless (if only that was what it looked like now!), and I set my Christmas tree up and decorated it.  Now some may say that it is bad luck to do that before the 1st of December, but I really don't care.  I needed something to do, the little man enjoyed it and what else can be thrown my way this year?

Our weekend was just as dull, I was actually really bored and begging for something to do!  I actually made us all go on a massive walk Sunday afternoon.  Not sure how far we walked, but it did take about 2 hours all up and I was sufficiently buggered after it!  If only I had the motivation to do that everyday, my weightloss mission would be so much easier!

Now I'm sitting here, thinking of things to write, watching the little man wave to The Wiggles and all the characters on the TV, and thinking that I should probably work up the energy/effort to make a start at packing a bag for myself and Wyatt... that my friends will be a story for next time!

So not much has really happened over the last couple of days!  It's been great just to laze around and chill out with my little man!  I've really missed relaxing and not having to stress about anything.

I took on the task of attempting to pack up and organise some of the stuff I had collected from school yesterday, not really sure that was a good idea, I didn't realise how much 'stuff' I had accumulated! :S  Who knew?!

My little man makes me smile almost every moment of everyday!  Love spending the extra time with him, but he does make me feel extra tired and exhausted as I don't know where he gets any of his energy from!

I will admit that the lack of things to do is actually making me go a little stir crazy!  I'm bored and it's only been 2 days!  To kill the boredom, I ventured to the gym today, just for something to do.  Now I'm exhausted and ready to pass out, but at least I killed half the day!

I did however recieve a beautiful bunch of flowers from my man on Monday to say how proud he is of me.  So sweet! Love him!!

First things First

So, I've just finished up my Uni degree, and now it turns out I have an awesomely long boring and anxious wait ahead of myself until I find out if there's a job of some description out there for me!  So to kill the time, I decided to put all of my adventures and my 'non' adventures into writing!  I have to admit that it's been a while since I just wrote for the sake of writing, but I'm really looking forward to doing just that!  And I'm hoping that by doing this, I'll at least have something to look forward to and something interesting to put my time and effort into, especially when my little man decides to drive me crazy and I need an outlet!
