Five for Friday: 5th December, 2016.

Thank Goodness its Friday!!!!! I know it's only officially Week 1 for those of us in NSW, Australia, but a lot is happening already! I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year, and that the start of 2016 has been kind to you! Here is a look at the week that was...

Monday the boys enjoyed some time with Dad, whilst I did some general duties - grocery shopping, cleaning etc. We're heading away on a little family holiday next week so I wanted to get some packing started, and make sure the washing was up to date! BORING - but necessary.

Both the boys are at school Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this year. Lachie is very excited to be part of the 'bog kid' group at preschool (school readiness program) and was showing me how every morning he has to find the rock with his name on it, and move it from the 'home' basket to the 'preschool' basket - and then of course when we're leaving he has to do the reverse. 

I quite like this idea as it gets the children to start recognising their name and distinguish it from others, and it forms part of their daily routine.

I'm trying to focus on making resource design a real business. I'm looking into a few online videos ad courses on how to become a successful 'treacher-prenuer' and hoping to double my sales for each month by the end of the year. Wait and see what 2016 has in store for me! 

I started back at the Illawarra Sports High as their Head Netball Coach today. I've got a few new girls who've just come into year 7. I've worked really hard these past school holidays on creating a program that will suit our circumstances and really provide ALL the girls with sessions that are beneficial to their level and ability (we do have a wide range of abilities in our group - one of our girls has just returned from representing Australia at the Indoor Netball Championships). 

I've set up a comprehensive Strength and Conditioning program (it's a good thing hubby is a sports physio/strength and conditioning coach) and I'm establishing our skills program. Stay tuned as I will be sharing it!

It's my dearest Dad's birthday today (61)! We're off to lunch for a small family celebration. He officially retired from teaching at the end of last year and the poor thing is finding it a little hard to adjust to having so much time on his hands after nearly 40years of being in the classroom (that's not including his time as a student!!!). Hopefully he'll get to spend more time with his grandchildren, and find a local organisation that will allow him to do what he does best - mentor and guide wayward young people.
