Week 27

Basically my life is a rollercoaster of drinking smoothies and eating spiralised veg at home then stepping out the front door into a 3 day marathon of eating cake. The struggle is real. Yinka xx

Week 26

So the maths teacher in me can’t help but notice that 26 weeks is equivalent to half a year…insane! I actually can’t believe that I’m a quarter of the way through my time here and I STILL CAN’T SPEAK SWEDISH!! So much joy!! Yinka xx

Week 25

Birthday celebrations with the teacher troupe.   I ate a lot this week…luckily the cake turned out well 😁   I did return to the gym this week though!   Happy 5th Birthday Hillsong Copenhagen!!! Yinka xx    

Week 24

First week back at school and I had that realisation that I’ve had so many times before…I love teaching. I love maths with a passion, the kids I teach are great and I actually really enjoy planning lessons; I get to come up with a new way for my students to learn and I’m in…

Week 23

Well Christmas is well and truly over. The Christmas tree is down, most of the Christmas treats have been eaten and I’m back to school tomorrow. I guess this means I need to stop eating ice-cream for breakfast. The last week of the break has been great: Stockholm, Ikea, 3 days barely moving (my fitbit…

Week 19

My Facebook/Instagram is full of all my friends in the UK surrounded by a winter wonderland (except those in Guildford or near Gatwick apparently). I have been checking (praying) since 9am to see if my flight was cancelled just so I could be forced to stay just one more day in Guildford. However I am…

Week 18

Decemmmmmmmber!!!!! I’m so ready for Christmas it’s unreal. December 1st – making Christmas cookies and watching Fred Claus with Charlene and Ellen.
