Top of my Summer Bucket List - My Tornado Teacher Room



I own up! I'm either very lazy or very busy... I haven't sat down to draw up a summer bucket list yet. I guess, like everything else, it'll come in fits and starts as and when things pop into my head. My summer bucket list will grow by the day, and probably, by September, nothing will have been started let alone finished..!

On my blog hopping travels I came across Heather from Heather's Heart's latest - how her second bedroom has become a place where you enter at your own peril and at risk of never making it back out again - her tornado teacher room... Like teachers everywhere, I can relate to this.
When I moved out of my house three years ago, I despaired of ever finding enough space in which to dump all my teacher treasures - you know, the stuff that's accrued over the years and never thrown away. I made do by squirrelling some of it away in the attic. Most of it was taken to school and stored there.

My real predicament came last summer when I left my job, What to do with all that stuff? And I mean ALL that stuff...! There were mounds of the stuff, all REALLY important of course. Honestly, I tried to be brutal but I just couldn't throw anything away. You know how it is, just after you throw something away you suddenly have an urgent need for it... There were crates full of French resources, art supplies, a library full of books, CDs and DVDs, boxes and boxes of resources that I'd made, useful information that "might come in handy", a giant scarecrow.... The list was endless. I had to make several trips and several car-loads with all of the seats flat before everything was safely home. What to do with it now? The attic was already full.

Pop on over to my blog to find out how I solved the problem and what I'll be doing this summer. Clicking my signature or button below will take you straight there.
