I’m in envy of my fellow bloggers who in their busy schedules find time to write their blogs. I know my time management skills aren’t the best but when I started to write this blog I fully expected to at least keep writing it for the first year. I failed miserably. Didn’t even make nine months. By the time we got to February I was exhausted. I could use the excuse of 3 hours commuting between Limbazi and Riga 4 days a week, or learning to teach age groups, subjects and a curriculum I’ve never encountered before, or renovating a house and gardens, or that age was finally catching up with me. However in truth I think it was a combination of all of them. I hoped somewhat naively that when I moved to Latvia I would have time to do all those things I did’t have time to do in London. We’ve even discussed whether I should retire, but that’s not possible at the moment.
However I think we’ve turned the corner now. The house is virtually finished and I’m teaching maths again to grade 6, which is what I trained to do. So it’s time to start blogging again. Over the next few weeks I’ll try and catch up with what’s happened over the last 7 months, which is a lot.
Again, apologies for the long period of inactivity, but will get back on track soon.
