Tuesday Ten

Ten things I'm looking forward to in 2011

1. Iceland trip in February. Northern Lights! Blue Lagoon! Glacier Walking!

2. Getting a ski qualification in April which will improve my own skiing ability and help me continue to run school trips in the future.

3. My year 13 classes getting their coursework done. It will be a lot of marking but once it's done I won't have to work half as hard for them and I'll gain hours in my timetable.

4. New York in May (out of Terminal 5, woop!), and seeing my old friend Lisa in Pittsburgh for the first time in 10 years.

5. Running a seminar at the national History teacher conference in July. I'll be presenting a workshop about using Google Maps in the classroom. V exciting!

6. Our 5th wedding anniversary. I can't believe it's been 5 years already.

7. Finally fulfilling a long-time ambition by visiting the southern hemisphere in August.

8. Snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef!

9. This is the last full year I've got of paying my old student loans. They won't be done with until April 2012 (and I'll still have my PGCE loan to finish off) but I am really looking forward to the September statement.

10. Being THINNER. This is my year for being thinner! I lost 4lbs last week, so it is currently seeming within reach.

you sure get to travel a lot... does your husband travel with you? or are these trips with students?

This year is a good year for travel! Iceland and skiing are school trips, NY is with the husband and Australia is with my mum, who has been planning it for,ooohh, three years!

I get a lot of school trips because not a lot of teachers want to do them. There's no extra money in it and it takes a lot of planning. I think it's worth it for the travel, though.
