Five for Friday

I am trying my first Five for Friday by linking up with Kacey and Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday.

Number One - Books the best gift after diamonds
I finally received one of my favourite books 'The Aunties Three', which I popped into the post for my new little niece Isla. I was really excited when I saw that Nick Bland has released his latest book 'King Pig'. Paula and I got to had a sneak preview of this book last year while we were teaching his niece. 

Number Two - The Moon 
My students and I have been learning about the phases of the moon, I also learnt a lot when I realised I had been teaching them about the Northern Hemisphere phases when we actually live in the Southern Hemisphere. Let's say science isn't always my forte.

Number Three - I'm an Aussie Blogger
I linked up with Paula from Paula's Place, who is one of my good friends and previous team teaching buddy, to celebrate and share bloggers in Australia. 

Number Four - Family
My beautiful Nana, Sadie who will be 99 in July is currently battling a chest infection and is quite unwell. I have spent the last few days realising just how precious our families are and all the wonderful times I have spent with my Nana. She is strong woman and I know she will be fine. 

Number Five - Anything Goes
A friend and I went to see a local production of 'Anything Goes', they a fantastic job and I was quietly jealous of their talent. I love going to musicals and supporting my local community.
