Happy holidays to all of you who are lucky enough to have finished for summer already and
happy last few weeks to all of my friends who, like me, are still nose to the grindstone!
I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to be taking part in this linky with the lovely ladies over at Teach, Talk, Inspire and My Day in K for Tell all Tuesdays!
I love getting to know all of my lovely IG/ blogging friends better and this is such a fun way to do it.
This weeks's theme is 'Two Truths and a Lie'- I mean, who doesn't like a retro sleep-over game?!
I wonder if you will spot my fib?
I don't have a very good poker face - can read my, can read my oh you can read a my poker face-
I am so very sorry!
Well, as you know my name is Laura and I am a teacher in the beautiful (and rather rural) Lake District in the north of England. I have been teaching for 9 years and love it! I think really I was born to be a teacher but denied my destiny for sooooo long. My mother was a teacher in inner city Liverpool for almost 40 years and as a little girl I wanted to be just like her!
It's thanks to the many summers I spent in her class getting it ready for the new school year that I have an obsession with 1cm double mounting and putting up backing paper correctly- God forbid a piece isn't level!!!!! As a teenager I moved away, rebelled if you will, from teaching and fancied a career in theatre/ film research or museum curating so I got my (incredibly broad) BA (Hons) in American Studies & Media and Cultural Studies but eventually found my way back and did a PGCE. It was whilst studying for my PGCE that I met my husband. He is a local and we met due to our mutual love of Liverpool FC but truly bonded over our desire to travel and see the world.
Now you know a little of my background, check out these 3 'facts' to learn a little more:
1. I can't drive so I get the bus to school and back every day- weep!
child husband is a WWE fanatic and we have been to 3 Wrestlemanias over the past 4 years!
3. I love to travel and Vegas is one of mine and my husband's favourite places,
particularly as we got married there 6 years ago!
Did you spot it?
Leave me a comment with your guess and I will let you know which was my lie in 3 days time!
Thanks for popping by...
So my lie was..... Number 3!!
Sadly I can't drive despite several failed attempts and living in a raural village makes this a total pain!
Yes- I am that girl who gets drunk, stands on her chair and chants 'let's go CENA' and then falls asleep just as the totally fit Roman Reigns walks past- oops!!!
I love travelling and Vegas is one of our favourite places but we didn't get married there. Sadly I won't make the TPT conference as I was in Vegas at Easter and Mr T won't splash out for me to go again- what a meanie!!
This has been fun!
