We had Teachers' Day celebrations in school today and for the first time in my life, I received a white chrysanthemum! My favourite flower has always been the sunflower because of its cheeriness, but reading up on the 'mum, I found out that it's a symbol of truth and strong life and I'm loving it! I've been teaching for a long while now, although in different places, and in the next month I'll have to make a decision whether I want to continue doing this for one more year. I'm hoping this one week of break would give me time to rest, reflect and of course read. And then I'll be in a better state of mind to be making the (hopefully) right decision.
Books that I plan to read are two recent random finds: #LoveinaColdClimate and #TheMayorofCasterbridge.
