After a teaching career spanning 3 decades and a bit more, tis time for a bit of 'me and Sara time'

Life in this first year has definitely had a few ups and downs. Lots of holidays and experiences. Finding out about how to manage time properly after the strictures of a job are no longer in place.

This then is my blog - initially it will be a bit retrospective and reflective as I fill in the details of the first year. After a while I hope it becomes  little more forward looking, but we will have to wait and see ...
