Summer time! Freebie at the end...

Well it's been nearly a month since I last posted and now that I'm a couple weeks into summer break, I can post again!

Summer is off to a great start! My husband and I moved to a new flat a couple weeks ago, so we are settling in now and I am loving this place. A lot bigger than the other place and still a great location.

My friend and I are on a 21-day break from refined sugar (I have a serious addiction) and I am feeling heaps better already. I've been reading the book, I Quit Sugar, and I hope to continue limiting my sugar even after the 21 days. My biggest weakness is cookies/biscuits at work, so I figured summer time away from work was the best time to start this habit.


This summer I'm also trying to get outside as much as possible. There are so many places to explore in and around London, so I am determined to make the most out of it. Last week I met a friend in Richmond and it was stunning! The actual cafe was under the bridge, and the trees were massive. It felt planets away from Arizona.


Yesterday I browsed around Teddington and Twickenham. They had so many amazing charity shops! I love going to charity shops for unusual dresses or random stuff for decorating. But this trip was strictly for children's games and children's books for school. I can't wait to get it to school!



Now I must finish this up and get to the gym! Here's something I just added to my TPT store: pictures of journal/notebook ideas for social studies/science (Second-Sixth Grade). Hope it can give you ideas if you use journals in your classroom.

Have a good one!

I commend you for going without sugar. I try to eat healthy most of the time, but I do enjoy some sugar when I let myself. Beautiful pictures, by the way. Europe is the best place to explore.
