Friday's Letters ...on a Saturday

Dear this-past-week,
HASTA LUEGO BABY! You've been an absolute bear and I'm glad to see you go!
May the door hit you in the ass on the way out!

Dear QTS Skills Tests,
Thank you, so very much, for torturing me like you have. The stress levels inflicted because of you have been OUTRAGEOUS, and I genuinely blame you for pissing in my cornflakes over the past few days. Nevertheless, it gives me great satisfaction to know that this morning I passed the English exam with flying colors, and come next Saturday I will have stomped all over your disgusting Math exam too. May you forever rot in a fiery pit :)
Dear Stress Level,
Return to normal please. Pronto. I'm now on the verge of becoming an emotionally unstable, foot tapping, hair pulling, headache suffering, just-plain-crabby insomniac. I don't want that, and neither do any of my friends or family. At this point in time I'm just looking for an enjoyable, relaxed, existence. You, I'm afraid, just don't fit into that equation.
With that said, get on your bike.

Dear PGCE,
Thank the Lord for July 13th when I graduate with my big fat fancy Masters level teaching certification and kiss you goodbye. FOREVER. You're not kind. You're needy and time consuming. You're just not my type and I'm afraid we need to see other people. I'm moving on.
Dear Periods and Hormones,
How dare you hijack my common sense, emotional stability, and rationalization on a week like this. Don't you have ANY consideration for others? (I understand this letter is probably TMI...but I'm in one of my moods so I'm truly not bothered. Ha!)

Dear Mom and Dad,
Thank you SO much for being there when I called the house Thursday night in the middle of  a hysterical crying fit. I needed to hear your voices. I needed your reassurance. I needed to know that you believe in me. You don't know how much it meant that you stayed on the phone for nearly two hours doing 80 billion division equations, converting 50 trillion fractions and moving 2 million decimal points to the left. 
You're the best and I love you both to the moon and back.

Dear beautiful Kindergarten class of mine,
I love each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart. Just seeing your little smiling  faces each morning gives me a boost and makes me happy. It's you that's kept me going this past week. I love your hugs, I love the 450 adorable little pictures and letters you make for me each day, and I love your tooth fairy stories. Your vibrancy, innocence and love of life is infectious.
With all of that said, please be nice to me and the other teachers on Monday when we're Field Tripping  it in the City Centre. I understand it's an exciting time, really I do, but do refrain from screaming 'I have to pee!' as soon as we set foot on the coach. Or squabbling over who your buddy for the day is. Or biting each other. 
Let's just have a good ol' puke, snot and complaining-free time shall we?
Love and cuddles, 
Mrs Anderson.
Dear oh-so-yummy Lemon Basil and Garlic Pasta,
Thank you for being SUPER quick and easy to make, yet utterly delicious. It's amazing to be able to come home after a long day of teaching and whip up such a yummy in the tummy meal within 10 minutes. Awesomesauce. Heaven in a bowl. Get.In.My.Belly! I must share you with the world.
(There's the recipe you requested, Dana!!)

Dear Mama-in-law,
Thank you for your sweet and encouraging texts. Each and every one of them makes me smile. You're the best and I love you oodles.

Dear Blogging Friends,
I love you guys. Thanks so much for being so supportive and positive. You're the best and I'm so unbelievably thankful/blessed to have (regardless of the distance) found you.
Girl power!
Dear Wine,
I love you. I want you. I need you. 
Come on over here so I can show my admiration...

Dear Self,
Take a deep breath. Offer yourself some cheese with that whine...pun intended. Understand that everything happens for a reason and everything will be okay. You'll get through this crappy stressful time, just like you've got through all the others. Now that you've had your time to rant and complain, count your blessings. Understand that things could be a whole lot worse. Take a moment to put into perspective how blessed your life is and rather than focussing on the negative look forward to the future and stay positive. 
Smile when you want to frown. Laugh when you feeling like crying.
And soak up all of that love, encouragement and support that surrounds you.
Tomorrow is a new day.

Have a lovely weekend everybody.
Thanks for reading!
Lots of love, love, love,
