Hi 'old' friends. I've been completely awol. Having a family, a new job, a new home seems to have led me away......I've tried before, but struggled on my mobile, but it seems to work well on my mobile now. So as a way of an introduction to some and re-introduction to others I thought I would post a hello. I am called Michelle, I live with my partner, his daughter (15) and our daughter, (3) and our son (18months).. We moved from a flat to house with a garden last September. I am a teacher (Primary) and currently teach in a nursery (for 3-5 year olds). I never thought I would enjoy the role, but actually love it. I'm also half way through studying a PGCert in Early Years Pedagogy. My love for Christmas has not gone anywhere and when I was active here, I used to crave sharing it with my kids and well it is everything I could have hoped for. I hope my old friends are well, but I know life has it's ups and downs and hope to be here with you all again to share. My brother, you may remember has kidney failure and he is still plodding away on dialysis, but he's not doing so well right now. We do everything we can to ensure he has enjoyable experiences and that we all make memories together.
