The Reading Nook | 3 | Books I’ll (probably) Never Read

I spied this tag going around booktube after watching Ariel's video of the tag created by this lovely lady (go check them out) and thought I'd have a whirl at the same thing here on the blog. Let's get to it. What's a really hyped book you're not interested in reading?   Lady Midnight and… Continue reading The Reading Nook | 3 | Books I’ll (probably) Never Read

ESL | The Open Class

WORKING in a public school in Korea means that once a year, in the run up to your contract renewal, you will face your open class. I've done 4 now, 3 of my own and 1 with my Co-Teacher at the time. I quite enjoy open classes, and in this post I'm going to share… Continue reading ESL | The Open Class

This Geeky Kitchen | The Madeline Experiment #1

I'VE recently had an attack of the blues. Muscle pain, tiredness and general 'meh-ness' has left me rather unproductive in recent weeks. Until yesterday. The mojo is back and the baking cogs were turning. I'VE always had a hankering to try Madelines and I've always found then a little heavy and dry.  My answer? My… Continue reading This Geeky Kitchen | The Madeline Experiment #1

This Months Bests | May 2017

HERE we are again. Already time for the second favourites (and if we're lucky this will go up on the correct Wednesday). I've played around the the format a little! Hope you like it! FOOD / DRINK AN old favourite and a new one this month. The old favourite is Coffee Travel (커피여행)  way out… Continue reading This Months Bests | May 2017

These Geeky Adventures | Boseong & Yeosu

THE sun has arrived in Korea! The weather is becoming deliciously warm and that means trips. Upon seeing photos, one half of the parental unit declared that I was on a permanent holiday - I like to see it as living in a place where the sun actually shines when it's suppose to, and where it's… Continue reading These Geeky Adventures | Boseong & Yeosu

Wonderland Camp | 2

THERE has been so much trial and error involved in getting the teacup craft right! It's been quite the challenge! INITIALLY, I had my heart set on this teacup from Next To Nix and made a mock-up using my altered version of the pattern that I'll included here: Adaptation of Next To Nix Teacup. This… Continue reading Wonderland Camp | 2

This Months Bests | April

I have my book posts, my baking posts, ones about teaching and ones about traveling around Korea, and even ones about music, but what about all the things I miss in-between! So, in order to not miss anything, I plan on putting up a favourites post the first Wednesday of every month (though being the first,… Continue reading This Months Bests | April

Extra Class Material | The Spelling Test

SPELLING tests are so useful for students and teachers. The students are challenged and the teachers can assess how well a class is taking in information. Of course, I'm sure you already know this! I use spelling tests a little differently. My aim, in every spelling test, is to ensure that no student ever gets… Continue reading Extra Class Material | The Spelling Test

The Reading Nook | Two

AFTER the upsurge of reading in January came the drought. I have been content to re-read and listen to audio books of old favourites as the hours in the day ran away from me, as they are want to do. THE February-March changeover is always a busy time of year in Korea. The school year… Continue reading The Reading Nook | Two

Wonderland Camp | 1

EDIT: As of Friday May 12th, this post has been updated to included additional photo booth props. Read the post for more.  I promised more camp materials before the summer vacation arrived and I'm horribly behind with posts, so here is part 1 of my Alice in Wonderland Camp preparation. I'm hoping that this will… Continue reading Wonderland Camp | 1
