Exciting News

I have exciting news for me to share today (as in it's exciting news for me that I will share with you today!)
I have been thinking and talking to my hubby, for perhaps a year or so now about reducing my days at school, but have always thought it was impossible and that they would never let me do it.  Well a few weeks ago some factors came together that made me think that perhaps it would be possible for me to reduce my days per week of teaching.  So I went and spoke to my headmaster and just asked about the possibility, he said he would discuss it with the deputy but thought it would be possible, so I though I would just wait it out and see what he said, pretty much thinking they would say it wouldn't work with the timetable.  Next thing I know, yesterday I was told that not only is it definitely possible but it is happening!!  I can't believe how quickly this has all come together.  I don't know what day I will have off yet but I am really excited about it.  I feel I am finally taking a step in the right directing and doing something to change my life rather than just moaning about it. 
I will go down to four days per week in January and I am just itching when I think of all the things I am going to do with my extra day.  My main focus will be my Art work but I will also use the time to organise more photography so I have still got that extra income. My husband and I have talked about it and said that I am going to have to be really disciplined with my time, make plans for what I am going to do, make sure I follow things through and make sure I am making money (we still have a rather large mortgage to pay after all). It would be great if I didn't have to worry about the money, but for us it is a fact of life and I just have to live with it. 
I can't believe in just two weeks time I will have a new timetable and a different working week, so exciting.  I can;t wait to share everything with all of you, I really hope it is going to be a success, it makes me feel very nervous, but I know I am doing the right thing.


  1. Well done, how exciting. It makes all the difference having that extra day. You can even go to the bank during the week now!

  2. good for you!!! I would love an extra day off but that's not possible at my work...
    Have a good weekend!
