Some kind of crazy

Lately my life has taken on a new level of crazy. The type that only occurs at end of year concert time. 

On top of working and teaching and normal book keeping and uni, I now have the Elite Dance concert to deal with. Added stress, deadlines, organising photo day, dress rehearsal week, stage rehearsal, trophies, costumes, answering all manner of questions from parents and students. Seniors that are away for schoolies, or work or study, juniors that are on holiday or at school discos and a million other things in between. To make my life just a little more jam packed, I also woke up sick yesterday (how inconvenient)!

Our house looks like teenagers live here, my social life has once again disappeared and my poor pets look at me with their big, beautiful eyes just begging me to not go to work in the morning! Wedding planning has taken a back seat as every moment of my day seems to be dedicated to some task.

If I didn't seriously love what I do, I would be close to a nervous breakdown! Every morning I turn my computer on and get a little reminder to calm down.

keep calm

I would also be [paddle-less and up a certain creek] if I didn't have a fabulous mother and sister who are always ready to jump in and do more than their share of concert prep. They keep me sane by being just as crazy as me!

Our concert is less than 3 weeks away. You may not hear from me until then as I may be drowning under a sea of paperwork. Come along if you get a chance!

Quick visits!

This afternoon I got to see (very briefly) two very beautiful people who I've not seen in years!

My lovely Aunty Anne and cousin Kim were down from Queensland visiting with my Mum and luckily I managed to spend an all too quick 10 minutes with them after I finished work before they had to race off.

It was so fabulous to see them, and I can't wait for the next visit, although I hope the next one is much longer than 10 minutes (and needs to also include my beautiful cousin Claire, who I have also not seen in years)! Perhaps a quick trip to the sunny state is in order for my Christmas holidays?

Engagement Party

It's been such a long time since my last visit and while I honestly have been insanely busy, I have been feeling rather guilty.

It seems I am a sucker for punishment, as I am in the busiest time of the year with the dance school (concert time), I also consented to work almost full time at work for the last term and decided take on two units at uni. Alas, this little blog has sat alone and unloved since my birthday in England.

I am afraid that it may remain slightly neglected over the next few weeks until the working year for me comes to an end.

I do however, have some photos from our lovely engagement party for you see while waiting, and leave you with the fabulous news that our wedding and reception venues are almost ready to go!

Many thanks again to those beautiful friends and family that were able to celebrate our engagement with us.
