If we were having coffee, I would tell you that it is a lovely day outside today. The sun is shining, the air is warm, and the feel of spring is in the air. Yesterday it was a bit windy and a little overcast, but I still enjoyed my afternoon walk (luckily the rain held off).
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I tried a new Zumba class yesterday afternoon. I decided to extend the exercise and walk instead of take the bus (hence my enjoyment of the mild day). The class was fun and I enjoyed the vibe in the room. I will definitely attend her classes more often! It was also fun to see familiar faces in the room as so many people were there who go the class I attend on Mondays.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have started attending the Monday Zumba classes again now that my practical exam is over. No longer do I have to frantically practise choreography to make sure I make no mistakes during the assessment. Inn addition, my practice session with my colleagues this week was more relaxed and, as such, I made less mistakes. Something is to be said to being examined in an authentic environment!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that on Tuesday last week, I met up with a dear friend of mine and we went to the book launch of a local author. I loved that my friend and I took the opportunity to meet and to do something book-related. We both love reading and immersing ourselves in the stories created by others, and this event was a treat. It was the first my friend had attended and I am pleased to say that it will not be the last! If you want to read more on the event, head on over to my blog post for more detail.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that the student who won the auction for the fund-raiser at our school was Teacher of the Day on Friday. He was so excited to take on the task and loved being able to choose what the class was to do. The first thing he did was say no “cahier jaune” (which is the French writing/grammar practice page that they do every morning as they enter the room). He chose to watch some Raptor’s highlights (whose victory was celebrated at the school), and to do Just Dance (with him choosing his favourite songs to dance to). Outdoor play was included in the day, as well as playing with the lego and blocks. Another highlight was him and his friend going out for lunch with me. Definitely enjoyable to hear the boys chatter and enjoy their time out with me. He was serious about his job and helped children as they completed the previous days tasks; and insisted on helping me with some marking. 🙂
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that my daughters’ and I are now going to finish up with our plans for Father’s Day. If you are a Dad celebrating this day with your family, enjoy it – I hope you are showered with love. It is a day on which I think of my own Dad who is, unfortunately, no longer of this earth. But I smile when thinking of him as I imagine him here with me.
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
