Hey Everyone!

It's getting so very close to Christmas! I just downloaded the Boney M Christmas Cd. Every year I just HAVE to download it. Its pure enjoyment in one CD. Nothing beats it, not even Kenny and Dolly (JANNNEEELLLE)

Again, I slacked and didn't write a blog, the week just zooms by so quick that before I know it its 11:30 PM on a Sunday evening and I have the feeling like I just HAVE to do it! So here it is!

This week has been all good I worked everyday in different schools. I had a trial day (which is basically a day long interview to see you in action) It went really well and I got to go back on Friday for another day. I just don't think there will be a job there so I'm not getting my hopes up. I'm not really sure even why I had a trial day there even...ANYWAYS, we'll see what comes out of it. I'm pretty happy just supply teaching right now but on the other hand it would be nice to know where you are going everyday. For January I do have the option of signing a Guaranteed work Scheme with my other agency which basically as the name says, guarantee's work. We'll see by the end of the week what I choose to do! I'm really holding out for a job at my favourite school but I guess they can't announce the job yet..sucky! Marlee's last day was Friday at her nursery so now we are once again in the same boat waiting for work every morning! I was thinking today about my experiences as a supply teacher and they have overall been fairly good. The really hard days seems to disappear in my mind so that's good! I haven't had to clean up poop or vomit so I think I'm doing ok. (This will probably jynx myself and tomorrow I will have to clean up a kid who puked and crapped his pants at the same time)

This weekend we decided to go on a Santa Pubcrawl. It started at 2 pm at a Australian Pub and for five pounds you got a Santa hat and a free "snakebite." A snake bite is made out of: Half Beer, Half Cider, and a shot of blackcurrent. It's delicious but potent. We didn't know that you had to prebook the whole outfit deal so we missed out. Starting at 2pm always means it's going to be an early night! We were home and sleeping by shortly after one and 5 o'clock last night felt like 5 AM. Eeesh, we did have tons of fun and met a lot of really cool and fun people. I learned a new game that they play in Australia. It involves clinking bottles together. I basically rocked it. See Youtube for a video of the night. There are pictures on Facebook too!

Weather. Let's talk about it. Why so damn cold at home. Jeeez. I'm not going to lie to you guys. I'm not. So, I have to admit I get a chuckle in the morning when I see my perfect little desktop weathernetwork thingy mabobby and I see that it says -34 but feels like -45. Then I notice the London one that says +11. It was +6 the other day and all the teachers were just complaining how cold it was and how they shouldn't have to go out to do supervision in such weather. I then chuckle at them. I'm really laughing about the weather. I need it to snow here to watch these fools in it.

We are currently hunting for a fun Christmas Vacation dealio. We (Me, Marlee and Kristin) want to head to Scotland for a few days before Carrie and Jerid come for a visit! We also plan on taking a day trip to see Stonehenge and Bath while they are here. Slowly our bucket list is dwindling even though we'll never see everything!

Funny story of the week:

I was subbing one day and I was on my lunch break at this school with all ridiculously good looking teachers. I was sitting in the staff room eating my lunch minding my business enjoying some Nicholas Sparks and these two men started talking about school projects from when they were in school. This guy said that they did projects all afternoon and he did this project on Canada and now Canada has a special place in his heart. Let's face it, when I hear Canada my ears perk up and I start to listen. This guys continues on to say "I really need to visit there I just HAVE to go to Saskatchewan." in your no.1 place to visit in Canada. I then opened my mouth and said....I am from Canada, and I am from Saskatchewan. This guy then thought I was sent down from the Heavens got up and shook my hand. He then went on to tell me everything about Saskatchewan and how he loved the shape of it and blah blah blah. So hilarious! I never thought I'd see the day where that would happen. I had a good chuckle over it then I got to thinking, this dude IS right, Saskatchewan is pretty kick ass :)

Alright, talk to you soon!

Send me some lefsa wouldja?

Oh Crystal you're funny! I now need to fins somewhere that will make me a snakebite...sounds yummy/dangerous (they're the same thing really). You should really be enjoying your weather beacuse it really sucks on this side of the world. Miss you!

hahaha o a Saskatchewan lover in London, that's awesome, it really is great and you know what they say..."Easy to draw but hard to spell" lol.
The youtube video of the Santa pubcrawl was great, if only it had sound tho, but you get the idea. The clinking bottles game does look like a lot of fun, you'll have to teach us when you come back.
I agree with Amanda, enjoy the weather cause we sure aren't!
